We’ve written a few articles and released our festive programme but we haven’t talked to someone at Real Ideas who is sitting in the front seat of the sleigh this year!

Laura, Programme Coordinator, and Avani, Marketing Coordinator, talking about what Real Ideas have installed for the festive period.

As Laura says, it’s running till 4th January so there are still plenty of events to get stuck into. Not to mention the last market this Sunday!

As part of the programme, we’re bringing the Market Hall back to its roots by inviting local, independent businesses to sell their products. In the early 1800’s the building was thriving as a market, so much so that in 1835 the market trade widened the products available to corn and grain among other items. Admittedly, you will be unlikely to find these food items in the market on Sunday, but I am sure something else may catch your eye this Christmas.

If you want to find more out about what Real Ideas is doing to help save the planet, you can find our One Planet Living document that talks about our plan to reduce our impact on our world.

There are even more ways to be thoughtful this Christmas, so we decided to direct you to some very handy reads:
