Celebs wanted for food drive

Monday 17 March 2003

THE Country Landowners' and Business Association is hoping to recruit Northern celebrities to help the drive to persuade people to buy more locally produced food.

This follows a highly successful visit to Cumbria by the Prince of Wales, during which he stayed in local bed and breakfast accommodation, visited pubs, shops and food producers.

He also spent over two hours at the Plumgarths Food Park, an successful enterprise created by CLA members John and Rachel Geldard, where he impressed everyone with his enthusiasm and knowledge of food production and stressed the importance of local sourcing to the local economy.

CLA's Regional Director Douglas Chalmers said: "The Prince of Wales is doing a tremendous job by consistently endorsing the importance of local sourcing.

"We are therefore asking for more celebrities and high profile citizens to follow the Prince's example"

Anyone who feels they could work with the CLA and other organisations to help promote the cause is asked to contact Douglas Chalmers at the CLA on 01524 782209 email douglasc@clanwest.demon.co.uk
