We’ve just heard that we have been accepted as a member of the national Sustainable Food Cities Network! (This doesn’t mean that we are now a 100% sustainable food city – none of the cities in the Network are. Just that we are working towards it, in company with over 30 other cities in the UK.) In April 2014 the Sustainable Food Cities Network (SFCN) will be launching its awards scheme and we will aim to achieve some level of the award as soon as possible. As yet we don’t know what the criteria are, but we will hear at the SFCN conference on 31st March. So watch this space!
