Green candidate visits and supports North Norfolk farmers' markets [press release]

Councillor Rupert Read, the Lead Green Party Candidate in Eastern Region for the 4th June 2009 Euro-elections, visited Farmers Markets around Norfolk on Saturday Feb. 7, including the Stalham and Aylsham markets.

Last month, Cllr. Read participated in a 10 day tour of the Eastern Region where he listened to the views and experiences of constituents. Last Saturday he spent the day hearing the views of North and East Norfolk's farming community and small businesses, so that he can understand the issues that matter to them.

Rupert Read said

"I believe it is important that politicians listen to people, and so that is what I am doing. I found it very useful to hear the experiences of small farmers and smallholders who play a vital role in our local economy. Finding out their views and concerns will enable me to help them more effectively if I'm elected as their MEP in June this year."
Cllr. Read continued

"I passionately believe in supporting our local economy in Norfolk, and this couldn't be more important than it is today, as the region faces up to a gathering economic crisis. In Stalham on Saturday I spoke to a number of people - shoppers and small businesspeople - who testified to the negative impact of Tesco on their town. Farmers' markets by contrast offer a fine example of a green way of living and of making a living."

Cllr. Read spent the day at various spots across North Norfolk including Stalham Farmers Market and Aylsham Farmers Market.

ENDS.
