I called in at Morrisons Store in Eccles today for a chat with Sue Marsh, The Community Champion for the store.
My visit was to discuss a possible book signing for the History of Eccles Pubs book, and the use of a table and chairs in a suitable Covid free, socially distanced environment. no doubt close to the recycling bins where our office is situated,
All monies raised will be split between The Mustard Tree Foodbank in Eccles, and Broughton House, The Armed Forces Rest Home, and who knows perhaps Morrisons may purchase a copy or make a donation to the two nominated charities?
My plea for help seems to have worked as the matter is being handed to the store supervisors, so fingers crossed for a week on Saturday between 12-m and 2pm depending on how many people turn up or we slope off to the pub with the takings
Sue asked if we would kindly mention that Morrisons are giving away, free of charge, packets of sunflower seeds, at the tills with no purchase needed. as part of the Seeds of Hope campaign.
The reason being is that they want to help celebrate the growing sense of national optimism with the decline in Covid cases by planting these sunflowers across the UK, representing the brighter and lighter times of hope ahead.
Seems fair enough to me, I love Sunflower plants and had two growing at Alma Towers, last year bright and cheerful they are.
I have been given quite a few packs, so just think, a free packet of sunflower seeds with every book purchased!
