A round up on the Trust projects
Keep up to date with the latest news about the Development Trust projects.
Sedgefield Farmers’ Market Sunday 6th September
We had twelve stalls on the Green in August, but September is always busier, so expect a bigger, busier market on Sunday 6th September - but it will still be COVID safe. Our newest trader is Zoe Rutter, La Chocolatrice. She makes delicious handmade chocolate bars, chocolate pearls, drops and buttons. Be ready for “a symphony of sensory pleasures.” We expect plenty of regular favourites and winter veg fans will celebrate Mellanby’s return - they are a big attraction from September through to spring.
Francesca and Olly Lawson will be here with cold pressed rape seed oil, Screaming Chimp with Chilli Sauces and for spice lovers Peter McKeone’s Diablo Seasonings will be back.
Finally, if the Bees at Hardwick have had any luck, there just might be some honey for sale at the SDT tent.
Our wonderful volunteers will do everything they can to ensure you have another safe Sunday morning on the Village Green.
Keep up-to-date with any late additions or changes on Facebook @sedgyfarmmarket.
Our 6th year of Energy Switch

Click here to register but if you need more help, please do call our helpline: 07980 134 594. URGENT. Most switchers use the internet route, but a small number of people cannot.

Woodland & Wildlife
Volunteers are delighted to be back in action. We’ve had a couple of working sessions and even carried out a bat survey. It’s been interesting to observe the changing flora and fauna on site over the past few months and we look forward to further activities.
If you would like to know more about the project contact email@example.com or join our facebook page Woodland & Wildlife – Sedgefield.
COVID-19 restrictions continue, but term starts in September, regardless. We still offer help to students, although we may have to be creative about how, using remote meetings or screen sharing (subject to good safeguarding practices & parental/carer approval). Contact us if you'd like help, or could offer to help some students better understand their homework.
We will get back to normal operation as soon as that is viable, but meantime, if you'd like to get in touch, find us on Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
