This from Oxfam -
“We have great stuff ready for you and managed to arrange interesting and exciting speakers from local food-related organisations including the Kindling trust and climate friendly food.
A quick reminder – we will start at 11.00 so if you can arrive at 10.45that would be great – you can have some tea, coffee and biscuits before we get started at 11.00.
The event is takingplace at the Greenfish Centre, on Oldham street,which is just ten minutes away from Manchester Piccadilly train station. (We have attached some directions for you here.)
When you arrive you need to buzz the Oxfam office. If no one is responding (we will, though) you can give us a ring on 07775 410536.
We will prepare a vegetarian lunch for you as well as a few biscuits etc. If anyone would like to get baking and share their cooking with others, you’d be more than welcome.
The training bit of our session finishes at four but it would be great if you could stay longer and socialise! We would go for a drink or something like that and have a chance to spend some time together, enjoy each other and share our plans and ideas!
More on issues of the day:
· How to nominate your food heroes – and a chance to meet some of ours!
· A chance to try making a short film clip interview and think about what makes for a good film clip.
· We be merry and think how we can use the labour party conference as an opportunity to further the Robin Hood Tax campaign (especially using social media)
· We will learn more and get creative about the new Land Grab Freeze campaign (as part of the wider Grow campaign) that’s due to launch on 4th October. Could we land grab a football pitch?
If you have any other questions or queries please get in touch – otherwise we are looking forward to seeing you on Saturday. There are still a couple of places available if you have any friends who might be interested in joining us too!
Also, if for you cannot make it, for whatever reason, please let us know a.s.a.p. so we don’t get too much food (we hate food waste!).
