    Reston and Auchncrow Community Larder

    The 'Community Larder has been operating for nearly a month now and has proven to be very succesful. Due to its success and both the present need  and future aspirations for the communities we plan to keep it going for as long as it is supported.

    We have signed up to get weekly donations through the 'Fare share' scheme. This means we will get food twice weekly from supermarkets for the larder. there will be a small cost to the community council to be a member of the scheme, but we hope that this will be worthwhile for the communities.

    So please use it, it is for All.

    Please feel free to donate also, either in the village hall foyer or in Reston Provisions shop, both places have donation boxes.

    More information is on the Facebook page and here on the Resilient Page.
