I ran an event this evening at Brightwalton Youth Club – the idea is to raise awareness of farming standard with kids in association with the Compassion in World Farming 'good egg' campaign. We cooked cup cakes using our own local free range eggs for the event*, local flour milled in Wantage and butter from Newbury farmers market. Over 20 children attended the club and made over 120 cakes to take home to family and friends. Every child took part making the cakes and parents were seen enjoying their children's warm cakes as soon as they came to pick them up. It was a great evening and just shows how strong the community spirit is in West Berkshire.
*egg's from Adrian Hollister's own chickens – hoorah!
