An exciting collaboration was formed at Transition Evesham Vale’s Annual General Meeting at the Fleece Inn on Monday 5th October. The local arm of the national environmental campaign not only officially merged with Transition Pershore, to form a stronger and more effective group, but also formally cemented plans to join their annual Local Food Festival with Evesham Carnival on 25th June 2016. “There are so many synergies between what we aim to bring to the people of Evesham, so it made perfect sense for us to work together” said Lisa Whelan, member of TEV and organiser of the Food Festival. “By combining our efforts we will be able to provide a greater range of locally grown and produced foods, even better entertainment and a fantastic free day out for all the family”. The 2016 event is themed ‘Rio Comes to Evesham’ and is expected to bring the Rio spirit, colour and flavours to the Vale. “We believe working together with Transition Vale Evesham will allow the Evesham Carnival to grow on the successes of its return in June after a seven year absence,” said Glen Lyon on behalf of the Evesham Carnival Committee, “there will be more to see and do on the Crown Meadow both before and after the Carnival procession and it will provide a fantastic opportunity for local producers to showcase the quality and variety of food grown and produced in the Vale.” Local growers and producers interested in taking part in the event can contact Lisa Whelan at JellyPickleJam Vintage Tea Shop in Vine Mews or by email at: info@jellypicklejam.co.uk
