The Coeliac UK Plymouth Group are holding their latest event at the Elm Community Centre, Estover on Saturday November 1st between 1pm and 4pm. A gluten free food and craft fair will be held giving those requiring a gluten free diet in Plymouth a fantastic opportunity to stock up on some really great locally produced GF goodies. The event is open to non-members so I hope that all Gluten Free by the Sea readers will come along on the day and get your hands on a wide variety of sweet and savoury treats. Full details of the event from the Coeliac UK Plymouth Group can be found below.
