Silvery Tweed makes rural education its primary focus at  Children’s Countryside Day

Silvery Tweed makes rural education its primary focus at Children’s Countryside Day

13 Jun 2016

Silvery Tweed Cereals spent a day teaching children from local primary schools about food, farming and factories, as the business once more lent its support to the annual Glendale Agricultural Society Children’s Countryside Day on June 10th.

The event, now in its 12th year, brought together more than 1500 schoolchildren from Northumberland and North Tyneside at the Glendale Showfield to learn about different aspects of farming, country life and the environment, from beekeeping to arable farming, red squirrel preservation, butchery, gamekeeping and flood management techniques. Pupils had opportunity to see farm animals and machinery close up, and meet a variety of individuals and businesses that are part of the rural community.

65 exhibitors and over 150 volunteers attended the event, manning the stands and running activities for students. As well as supporting the event financially, Silvery Tweed ran an interactive stand, where pupils were shown the different types of grains that are used in the foods they eat, as well as creating their own blend of cereals and learning about the life cycles of different cereal products from field to fork.

Bob Gladstone, Managing Director of Silvery Tweed Cereals, was proud to be a part of the event. “Silvery Tweed has lent its support to the Glendale Children’s Countryside Day for a number of years now. Each year it’s fun, engaging and informative, and each year the lessons it teaches become increasingly important: for many children, the show is the first time they will see how much food is grown on their doorstep in the North East.

“Some of the finest foods in the UK, including Silvery Tweed’s own grain, are grown here in Northumberland, and the Children’s Countryside Day is an engaging way to increase children’s awareness of this. We were very happy to be part of the event for its 12th year.”

We can provide storage for up to 2500 pallets
