We are delighted to announce our next 'event' as part of our 30th birthday celebrations which takes the form of a Poetry Competition...
"Beanies Wholefoods and Sheffield Live Radio are delighted to announce the launch of their poetry celebration to mark Beanies' thirtieth anniversary. "Beanies has part of the local community in Walkley, Sheffield, for 30 years now," says Beanies Co-operative member, Chris Baldwin. "We greatly value our customers' opinions and creativity, so we thought that a poetry celebration would be an excellent way to mark our thirtieth birthday."
Beanies is a busy wholefoods shop and greengrocers in Walkley. A workers co-operative, Beanies has been selling wholesome, fresh produce since 1986, and was recently recognised as Best Independent Retailer in the UK in the Observer Food Awards.

There may be some sort of modest prize at the end for the category winners but that's not really what it's about - we do hope to produce a small collection of some of the poems afterwards - more details later.
So if you're feeling inspired get your thinking caps on and get scribbling. Remember the theme is 'Feast' but you can interpret that in any way you choose.
