Re-f-use

A pop up community cafe that intercepts food before it becomes waste and serves it up to the community on a pay-as-you-can basis. Run as a social enterprise, they welcome help with cooking and washing up in lieu of payment so it really is inclusive.

St Margaret’s Allotment Association

Located with a view of the Cathedral, this well kept site is definitely worth a visit on one of their annual open days.
