Although Suffolk Wildlife Trust and Metfield Stores may seem very differnt organisations they actually share an important common value; localness. Both of us require the support of local people and volunteers to spread our good work which in turn galvanises our unique Suffolk community. We are delighted to have an assocaition with Metfield Stores and our Chistmas card project - an 8 year strong relationship. Wildlife artists and images of Suffolk wildlife are brought together in a high quality product for local people to enjoy, share and celebrate while making a difference to local conservation work too!

Suffolk feast is a beautifully presented book that features interviews with 20 talented Suffolk's chefs, each of whom promotes local produce and ingredients. It is an ideal read for all food lovers and is filled with mouth watering recipes.

A story about a little wild rabbit called Dara who was separated from his family when he was tiny. Hand-reared by humans, it tells of his life's journey, the friends and attachments that he makes, some quite unexpected!

Both sad and humourous at times and also educational and unlifting. Children who read this will learn the importance of valuing all living creatures.

Illustrations by the very talented Dee Nickerson.
