We are required by the constitution to do as follows – “The Annual General Meeting shall be held every May, or within the following three months for the following purposes:
a) Election of i) Chairperson ii) Secretary iii) Treasurer iv) Member(s) of the Committee
b) Presentation of accounts
c) Appointment of auditor
The Secretary will notify all members of the date of the meeting not less than 14 days before the AGM”
In the current circumstances it is not possible to hold a physical meeting, and not likely to be so within the time required for the AGM. The committee have therefore agreed that we should hold a “virtual” event via the group’s website and email.
Alice Walters, of the famous Chez Panisse in Berkeley California, had her “epiphany” moment in Brittany some 50 years ago when she ate a meal in a simple restaurant and wondered why everything tasted so delicious.

On offer were fresh beef and lamb, local cheese, freshly raised pies, vegetables, preserves, chillies, cakes and food to eat “on the go”. All the fresh foods on offer sold out, some in less than 30 minutes. To add to the feast, local musicians provided entertainment. Continue reading “New Ledbury Evening Farmers’ Market is a success”

We are a group of volunteers passionate about supporting our local farmers, food producers and shops as a means of sustaining a thriving market town at the heart of this exceptional farming area.
We would like to welcome some new members to join our management team and help to maintain the Group’s activity. Currently the team is small (just five individual members supported by a producer and two town councillors).
