Food Rescue - Hitchin FRESH

This is now up and running each Thursday morning from 10.00 to 1.00 at (St Mary's) Church House. Food that would otherwise go to landfill is collected from supermarkets and other shops and café then brought to Church House.  It is available throughout the morning on a `pay as you feel' basis and the aim is that nothing is wasted. During the morning, coffee/tea and biscuits/cakes are served. It has got off to a good start and all are welcome to come and see what happens - and go home with some great food! For further information go to its new website -


Hitchin Food Rescue & Borrow Bags


Saving Hitchin from Plastic bags:  I have started a scheme with support from local shops and Hitchin Initiative to provide home made Borrow Bags for when people have gone into town without a bag. It saves buying a plastic   one. The bag is used and returned to any of the shops who have them. I need help to make more bags and have the printed Borrow Bag labels to stitch on. Do contact me if you can help or need more info.
