    Environmental Awareness and Local Food Fair

     

    Woodbridge Riverside Trust are delighted to be supporting an Environmental Awareness and Local Food Fair in Whisstocks Place on Saturday 24th September (10 am to 4 pm), brought to you as part of Woodbridge Ambient Music Festival. Organised by Transition Woodbridge, the Fair will be hosting a variety of local food and drink producers, such as Wakelyns and Briarbank Brewery, alongside environmental groups like Suffolk Wildlife Trust and Churches Together Woodbridge. This promises to be one of many exciting events that comprise Jan Pulsford’s weekend-long Ambient Music Festival.  

     

    On the same day, Save The Deben, a river-focused campaign group, welcome their river relay into Whisstocks Place for a reading of the Universal Declaration of the Rights of Rivers at 12 pm. The Declaration will be transported by long distance swimmers, paddle boarders, kayakers, wild swimmers, rowers, Sea Scouts and our own Sae Wylfing in a 2-hour relay, up the Deben from Felixstowe Ferry/Bawdsey Quay to Woodbridge where it will be handed over and read by a guest speaker, at high tide of the Autumn equinox. We hope you will join us for this joyous occasion.
