Village SOS – Tideswell – Your thoughts please

Last night saw Village SOS – feature our very own village of Tideswell. I for those who don’t know am an ex-resident, but still get there regularly to visit family and friends.

A group of residents have been in involved in setting up The Tideswell School of Food and the Taste Tideswell Brand.

I had been warned by friends on Facebook that opinion about the project is quite split. We posted a thread about the program on The Facebook group Let’s Debate.

I’m keen to hear from an Tideswell residents just what you think of the School of Food and what your thoughts were on the way the village was portrayed. (if you missed the show, here it is.)
