A PIONEERING scheme to bring affordable fresh fruit and vegetables to villagers is being launched at a family fun day this weekend.

The Food Co-op, part of an East Dunbartonshire-wide council initiative to make it easier to eat healthily, will be at Campsie Memorial Hall, in Lennoxtown, this Saturday, June 23, from 10am-1pm.

It is hoped the co-op will be successful and established as a weekly visitor to the hall.

And there will be plenty of other attractions at the Memorial Hall this weekend, with a family fun day kicking off at 11am.

The event will include a beat the goalie contest, a tombola, a bouncy castle, face painting, roll-a-penny, candy floss, popcorn and much more.

Entry is £2 adult/£1 children and includes tea, coffee and home-baking.
