Businesses in Llangollen are being asked if they would like to “take it slow” by giving speedy help to an exciting new initiative.
Over 50 shops, restaurants, pubs and other firms are being invited to help start a local Slow Food group in the town.
Slow Food is an international organisation that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment by promoting local, seasonal produce and reconnecting people with where their food comes from.
It is a not-for-profit movement in which local groups, run by volunteers, organise a variety of events alongside local food and drink producers and chefs.
Membership is open to individuals, however businesses and other organisations can also become Slow Food supporters and/or partners to help organise and promote group activities.
Each group determines its own aims and activities, which could include ideas such as:
– Helping to develop kitchen gardens in local schools
– Sensory taste education workshops for children and adults
– Local gastronomic tours: visits to local farms, food artisans, specialty stores and wineries
– Tastings and dinners to highlight local and/or heritage products in the area
– Running cookery classes and taste education courses
– Exchanges with other Slow Food groups
– Maintaining and promoting heritage foods and drinks
• If you are interested in learning more about how you can help, or would like to be kept informed of our progress, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone or text Sal on 07786 623802.
Organisers also want to hear from anyone in Llangollen who is already a member of Slow Food UK.
