Gladestry Home Delivery Service
It is hoped that a home delivery service can be set up in Gladestry.
This will include dairy products including organic milk from Teme Valley Dairy, Tenbury Wells, in glass recycled bottles, bread & pastries from Sally's Pantry in Kington, as well as newspapers and any other goods from Spar garage.
A free sample of the organic milk is available so that you can taste the difference.
There needs to be enough interested people in Gladestry to make this happen.
For more details contact the delivery organiser Sue West on 01544 230076,

The GACF was set up in November 2003 in order to administer the money still left in the Millennium Fund. A constitution was agreed, and the following objectives defined: - To stimulate and support activities, events and projects within the Gladestry Community Council area. - To aim to use the fund as a sort of seed capital for projects, whereby if a profit is made, some reimbursement is requested, but is not a requirement.
