Join us for the latest in our Eat Up Stand Up... events, "Eat Up Stand Up for our Planet".
These events focus around a social justice topic, with our latest offering focusing on the question:
"How do we make a positive environmental impact in our local communities?"
Attendees will receive a home-cooked meal* and pudding under a "pay as you feel" basis. Everyone is welcome and we will have kids activities available on the evening too.
Once we have eaten we will be joined by our Guest Speaker, Matt Gordon of Appletree Community Garden, who will lead the discussion around how we can improve our environmental footprint across the local region.
This will be followed by a Q&A open discussion around the points raised and give all attendees plenty of food for thought on the differences we can all make in our local area.
This is a free to attend event, we simply require pre-booking so we can plan food accordingly.
Bring your friends and family along for a great evening, meeting like-minded people from across your community who want to be the change we all want to see.
*meal will be vegan, gluten and dairy free. Please talk to a member of staff on the day regarding allergens.
