A SUMMER WITHOUT STRAWBERRIES?
Ooh, beautifully fresh, ripe strawberries drizzled with cream… yum! One of those irresistible indulgences for any time, but especially now, as it could become the nation’s most in-demand pud this summer — if there’s not enough to go round!

Many British growers, like our client Place UK in Norfolk usually rely on overseas workers to pick the delicious home-grown fruits we all love. But this awful pandemic situation has changed all that. There’s now a desperate need for native locals to take up these jobs and get our beloved fruit and veg out of the ground and into the supermarkets, right across the country.
Place UK’s campaign to ‘help us feed the nation’ has generated over 500 applications at the last time of counting, so as we expected from the great British public in a crisis, there’s been a rally of support to get the job done. And what’s not to like? It gets you out of the house into our beautiful countryside, keeps you fit and active and pays well too. You can apply here.
Because we can’t imagine a summer without our great British summer fruits, can you? A strawberry-less Pimms or a raspberry-less pavlova doesn’t bear thinking about.
