Soupa Doopa! Allotment Association raises almost £200 at Saltburn Farmers’ Market

Glorious autumn sunshine brought shoppers out in force to Saltburn Farmers’ Market on Saturday, 12th November, and helped the town’s Allotment Association raise almost £200 after their special winter warming soup sold out before lunchtime. Allotment Association secretary Sue

Featherstone said: “We’ve had a fantastic day, and made a profit of just short of £200 from our regular monthly stall. This was largely thanks to sales of our delicious Farmers’ Market soups, both of which sold out before lunchtime. “And while people were waiting to be

served, they also took time to see what else we had to offer on our stall. This included chutneys and jams made from allotment holders’ ingredients, fresh vegetables picked on the morning of the Market itself, and some lovely mossy baskets filled with winter flowers. “The mossy baskets were made by

wonderful day. The sun shone and showed the Market at its best, and the atmosphere was absolutely fantastic all day long.” The next Saltburn Farmers’ Market

is a Christmas special on Saturday, 10th December. Over 25 stalls will include a great mix of locally produced seasonal food, drink and artworks, and will take place outside Sainsbury’s, near Saltburn Railway Station, between 9am-3pm. Photos attached: (Both pics by Rob

learners from our ‘Grow & Learn’ allotment garden training course, and funds raised from their sale will go towards next year’s course. The rest of our profits will go to benefit our plotholders. “We currently have 160 allotments, with at least two-

thirds of each garden used solely to grow fresh fruit & veg, and I think the Farmers’ Market is a great place to come and buy good quality locally produced seasonal food.” Market organiser Lorna Jackson said: “It’s been a

enterprise of over 20 locally based food producers and retailers, Saltburn Farmers’ Market aims to promote the social, economic and environmental benefits of locally produced food. The first Saltburn Farmers’ Market

survived blizzard conditions in Easter 2008, and has now become one of the most popular Farmers’ Markets in the North East – twice being named as Redcar & Cleveland’s ‘Best Social Enterprise.’ (2009 & 2011). *An independent survey carried out by the North East

England Farmers Markets Association (NEEFM) found that 4,566 people visited Saltburn Farmers’ Market on Saturday, 14th May 2011. This compared with 3,530 visitors during their previous survey carried out on Saturday, 8th May 2010.

4 People Not Profit Free Film Night exposes financial crisis

4 people not profit’s monthly film night ‘Open your mind’ returns with a startling look into the origins of the financial crisis with academy award winning documentary ‘Inside Job’. The film will be screened as usual upstairs in The Marine, Saltburn and will be on December 8th. Doors at 7pm and the film starts at 7.30pm. ‘Inside Job’ provides a comprehensive analysis of the global

financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse. Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of a rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia. The San Francisco chronicle said of this film “Inside Job

couldn’t be more prescient – a work so daring that its obvious truths seem seditious. A searing examination of the financial crisis of 2007 -10 and its catastrophic ramifications, not just for Americans but the world”.

So come on down and take a closer look at what brought

about the financial crisis. A financial crisis we are still feeling the aftershocks from as can be seen in the current eurozone crisis. See also pages 40 and 53.
