This year’s Town Meal took place on Saturday 14th September, from 12pm to 4pm in Centre Square, Middlesbrough between the Town Hall and MIMA.
The Town Meal is a celebration of the growing projects that have run throughout the year, with community groups and individual families reaping the rewards of growing their own fruit and vegetables in locations across the town. Donations of this produce go towards the Town Meal which is cooked by school cooking staff from Middlesbrough schools. The meal is free to all who attend.
The afternoon’s entertainment was provided by an array of activities, including the climbing wall, boxing ring, bouncy castles, our smoothie bikes and many others besides.
We also greeted a number of stalls from a variety of organisations including the Co-Op Fairtrade, Teesside Woodturners Association, Cleveland Beekeepers Association, Thirteen Group and many more.
There was also a produce competition which heralded a number of fantastic entries across an array of categories. Finally, there were also demonstrations from the Fire Brigade with their chip pan fire demonstration, and both St. John’s Ambulance and Cleveland Police were there with their vehicles on display.
