On Saturday 28th October, Stuart and Sue paid Llandudno in North Wales another visit. They met with the owners of Albany House Hotel and Jo Hughes who is a yoga teacher and herbalist, as well as Alan Drwm Collinson who is a geologist and professional cartographer.

It was agreed to do a project highlighting the ‘natural food bank’ on the doorstep especially as food banks are currently so needed with the current state of the economy. It’s felt it would be great to get people to notice the food they are walking past everyday and to educate them how to harvest it sustainably in a confident way. Making food your medicine and medicine your food.

Stuart went to see Ray Mears at the Victoria Theatre in Halifax, west Yorkshire on October 30th and wonders what Ray Mears thinks about homelessness and food banks when there’s such a natural resource out in nature to feed us. It was agreed with Jo Hughes to do some foraging on the Great Orme and on the beach at LLandudno, plus in some local woods, and then go back to Albany House where we will stay and cook up some delicacies of what we find.

This will make a good episode of the People’s Countryside, good content for Going Wild with Wildlife radio show, and we will produce a good photographic archive. We will be launching a crowdfunding campaign in February 2018 with a view to filming in April 2018 and releasing the footage in May. There is scope to do a series of shows thereafter.
