Network puts on family fun day in Peebles

PEEBLES Community Action Network are putting on a free event on Saturday to encourage local people to become more self-sustainable and cut down on their food waste.

The family fun day is also aimed at gathering local people’s ideas on how Peebles can become more sustainable.

The event runs from 10am to 3pm and has lots of fun activities for children, as well as cooking demonstrations and tastings, food waste information and advice on gardening and growing your own food.

A lunch of homemade soup and bread will be on sale, with all proceeds going to the local scout group, who will be assisting with the event.

Local families are also being sought on the day to take part in a challenge to reduce food waste.
