WAG Supported Food Festivals

03 May

We are now into May, but still without a list from WAG. Welds Assembly Government, of festivals they are supporting this year. I’m getting thoroughly fed-up of telling people, whether they are producers, foodies or our readers that we still have no news and the reason why we haven’t this information. This scenario is out of our control. If WAG has any other sensible reason, apart from the excuse of the election, why they have not published this list, they are keeping it to themselves. I don’t think anyone would disagree that this situation is, to say the least, unhelpful.

Maybe by 6th May WAG will send me this list through…………………………………

The July/ August issue of Welsh Country magazine is already planned, so it’s more likely that we’ll run the WAG food festival list on our welshcountry website, or on www.welshfoodbites.

    I dread to think how much time your team have spent on this problem and we are still no further forward. WAG are treating this as if it doesn’t matter which proves they are not trying to make their living selling local food at festivals and markets.
    I’m disgusted and this is something I shall raise with my new Assembly Member, I’m furious with WAG.

    Don’t give up
    As a mini business myself, I understand better than most how much time and effort your team have put into this basic request. Who would have guessed it would turn into Wag’s world war 3 battling against media that they need on side?
    It puzzles, worries and maddens me that wag are so silly, or scared to bring you on board and work with you instead of fighting and making your life so difficult.
    As I have been listening to the election it seems maybe we wont have a coalition this time and that we’ll have a new Rural Minister. Might the new person in this role make your life easier, I hope so..
    I’m not sure how much longer you are prepared to keep pushing wag, but I do hope wag see sense and you carry on working so hard for us. Please keep going.
