Fruit Pickers needed – can you help?

Dear Residents,

To help with fruit picking in Staffordshire, please visit:

Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) George Eustice MP. He stated that food availability in UK supermarkets had returned to “normal levels” after a period of panic-buying at the start of the coronavirus outbreak.

· Mr Eustice also said the international food chain is continuing to “work well”, but he said he expected there to be a need to recruit furloughed staff in the UK to harvest crops at the start of the summer.

The text of Mr Eustice’s statement can be found here.
