You may have spotted that Richard of Northumberland Poultry was missing from trhe market last Saturday, 10 November. The reason for this was the fact that our producers have lives beyond their businesses and their products. In Richard’s case he was very involved in a World War I commemoration weekend in his home village of Stannington near Morpeth. Richard has also written a number of books about the men from Stannington who were involved in that terrible war, now more than 100 years ago.
If you’re interested in buying a copy of one or more of the books you can contact Richard by email. The books are priced at £20 each and all proceeds go to a community fund administered by Stannington Parish Council.
We do hope Richard will be back at the market, minus moustache, on Saturday 24 November 2018.
