Tasty treats tempt outlets to buy within stone's throw of Bradford on Avon

Food and drink producers from Bradford and Avon and the surrounding area exhibited their products at a trade show to encourage outlets to stock local produce.
A Local Larder took place at Leigh Park Hotel and stalls included In a Pickle from Winsley, The Old Cheese Room from Corsham, and Rowdey Cow Farm Cafe and Ice Cream Parlour from Rowde.
It was open to buyers from the hospitality sectors, local produce wholesalers and retailers interested in meeting the people who grow, rear and process products locally.
Ros Edwards, of Climate Friendly Bradford on Avon's Sustainable Food and Drink Group, developed the idea with events manager Sue Thomson.
She said: “It was a very successful event with a great atmosphere.
“We had some really high class producers, all within a 35-mile radius of Bradford on Avon, and a good range of buyers.”
