MPs to get a taste of West Suffolk
The tastes of West Suffolk are being taken to Westminster next month by the area’s two MPs.
On April 13, Bury St Edmunds MP Jo Churchill and West Suffolk MP Matthew Hancock will co-host a West Suffolk Food Fair at Westminster Hall, near the Houses of Parliament, to showcase the finest local produce from their constituencies.
The event will host exhibitors from the region boasting longhorn beef from Kenton Hall Farm, near Stowmarket, Greene King beer, Alder Carr ice cream from Creeting St Mary, Musk’s Newmarket Sausages and many more.
The show will bring together local producers, businesses and leaders as well as industry representatives, to promote the interests of Suffolk produce and boost the local industries with contributions from Visit Suffolk.
Visit Suffolk will also be using the event to launch their new interactive website.
Members of Parliament and distinguished guests will be attending the event and be able to sample the very best of Suffolk food and drink.
Jo Churchill said: “With just a month to go before our illustrious event, it is already shaping up to a fantastic opportunity to showcase our thriving food and drinks industry. I am always looking for ways to support our local businesses and I am delighted, in conjunction with Matthew Hancock MP, to be able to give our local farmers, bakers, brewers and more, this opportunity.”
