Reston and Auchncrow Community Larder

The Reston and Auchencrow Community Larder is owned and operated by the Community Council Resilient Group.

As from Friday 1st April the Larder will be operating four days a week, Mon,Tues,Wed and Saturday, 11 am until 1 pm.

The 'Community Larder has been operating for nearly two years now and has proven to be very successful. 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 'Fareshare' scheme. This means we will get food twice weekly from supermarkets for the larder. Thanks to your donations the Larder is self sustainable and no additional financial support is required at present, we thank you for your generosity for such a worthwhile cause.

So please use it, it is for All.

Please feel free to donate unwanted foodstuffs, either in the Larder at the rear of the village hall or in Reston Provisions shop, both places have donation boxes.

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