Living in Northumberland has it’s plus points – beautiful scenery, close to the country as well as the coast, but when it snows, oh it snows. We are now on day three of being snowed in thanks to the #beastoftheast. We have taken this chance to really reconnect as a family. It’s wonderful how the snow slows you down – and forces you to leave the car on your drive and go where you need to by foot.

We all know that food waste is bad. None of us feel good about chucking the limp bit of salad at the bottom of the fridge, or the mouldy bread that’s been forgotten. But it isn’t just households that are the source of a huge amount of food waste (over 7 million tonnes in the UK according to Wrap in 2015); food retailers and restaurants are also guilty of this, throwing away leftover food from that night’s service or food that has reached its use-by date.
