Celebrity chef Andrew Kojima will be cooking up a storm at Watchfield’s Sustainable Energy Fair sponsored by ethical retailer The Midcounties Co-operative.
Andrew, a finalist in BBC One’s Master Chef 2012, will be showcasing delicious recipes using sustainable cooking methods with the help of Midcounties’ Membership and Co-operative Energy teams on Saturday, 23 June.
The event, organised by the Westmill Sustainable Energy Trust, will feature Rinky Dink, an eco-sound system which uses pedal power to create music, and the Orinoco Scrap Store which re-uses commercial waste materials to create fun games and creative play projects for children. There will also be a variety of cycling events which people are welcome to bring their own bike to.
Shabaz Hussain, Membership Officer for Midcounties said: “We are delighted to be supporting this event and to be attending in this the International Year of Co-operatives which is all about helping to build a better world.
“It promises to be a fun day which will raise awareness of sustainable living. As an ethical retailer we are always working hard to increase our recycling efforts, and improve knowledge of environmentally friendly methods of living.”
The event will also feature Westmill Solar Co-operative which will be launching its share offer for its Solar Farm with MP Ed Vaizey at 1pm.
The Fair is open from 11am until 4pm and entry is free. For more information visit www.weset.org or phone 01367 240508.
The Midcounties Co-operative has an extensive recycling scheme in practice throughout the business and encourages colleagues to volunteer on environmental projects and support campaigns to raise awareness of environmental issues.
