A NEW food co-op is blooming following its successful launch last week.

Waterside Community Council held its first food co-op, which offers residents fresh fruit and vegetables at the Subscription Hall last Thursday (October 13).

The co-op, which is run by volunteers, aims to encourage healthy eating within communities.

Bill Lapping, chairman of Waterside Community Council, said: “We are delighted with how well the launch of the co-op went. It was enough to tell us that this is a worthwhile venture.”

The co-op will be held every Thursday from 2pm-4pm in the Subscription Hall in Waterside. (K11800)
