The Coeliac UK Plymouth Group are holding their Annual General Meeting on Saturday March 14th. Everyone is welcome to attend so I hope that I will see lots of Gluten Free by the Sea readers in attendance! There will be a talk from Glutafin and of course the opportunity to buy some amazing gluten free goodies from some local suppliers, plenty of free samples and some great raffle prizes. Please see full details below.
Kevin, Gluten Free by the Sea.
The committee invite you to join us at the ELM Centre, ASDA Plymouth, for our AGM. A short meeting to go through the formalities of the AGM will be followed by a talk from Glutafin. There will also be the chance to buy some gluten free treats from some fantastic local companies. For new members we will be available to give help with such things as prescriptions and best places to purchase gluten free products.
We are delighted that Tamara from Glutafin will be joining us this year to give a gluten free talk and update from her company. This will be followed by a great opportunity to stock up on gluten free products from some of the finest local suppliers. Let Them Eat will be present with their delicious cakes, Jackson’s Bakery will be bringing their fantastic products down from Torquay, Ladybird Bakery will be selling a taste of what is available at their new Pannier Market home and St Maurice Bakery will be selling delicious hot steak pasties amongst other things. Pomeroy Rare Breeds will again be selling their fantastic pies and Scotch eggs. We have now added Westcountry Produce to the line up and they will be bringing some fantastic looking pies, including a vegetarian range. Everything will be gluten free! Glutafin, Juvela, Newburn Bakehouse, Keep Me Gluten Free and The Black Farmer have all donated free samples for members or raffle prizes amongst others.
In the Elm Centre we will have use of the excellent kitchen facilities, where Tea’s, coffees, biscuits and cakes will be available after 2:30pm. For all you bakers out there, we welcome you to bake and share with other members. There will be a £1 voluntary entrance fee to the meeting and members are also encouraged to bring unwanted prescription items for new members.
