The countdown to the first of the Peak District Markets has started. Teachers and pupils alike are a hardy lot here in Derbyshire and despite snowdrifts and blizzards preparations are well underway. Jane came over from the Mid Wales Food and Land Trust to run some ‘planning workshops’ at Monyash, Brassington and Dove Holes primary schools. The pupils proved to be very creative and enterprising with their ideas. A few got carried away thinking about chocolate fountains, Easter eggs and popcorn though! Some teachers had very worried expressions and were starting to wonder what they had let themselves in for.
