The Great Big Green Week - 24th September - 1st October 2022

We have lots of activity taking place over the week with some of our own events and linking in with local climate change groups too.  Take a look at what is happening across Leicestershire, Bedfordshire & Nottinghamshire.

Friday 23rd September 2022

Starting this evening, we are welcoming the Market Harborough Brownies and Guides into our Market Harborough Store to participate in our Ethical Challenge.  The Challenge promotes lots of different logos such as Fairtrade, BUAV, FSC etc. and the object is to find products with these logo's on and learn what they mean.  There will be plenty of time to look behind the scenes and have a go at scanning on our tills too.
