To celebrate our TENTH Birthday, we have a brand new logo and here it is up top, with the meaning behind it.

This meaning became “more meaningful” listening to members last weekend when attending the farm visit. A number of you were heard to be referring to FIG as more than just the food, a long held opinion of mine as well, and the importance of the people and connections.

We wanted something to represent the connections we have between food, people, farms and the earth. Not an easy brief however Tim Moad has nailed it, we think. Thank you very much to Tim for your time, patience and expertise in putting this together for us all. It is very much appreciated and WE LOVE IT!

Normally we see Tim in at the co-op most weeks as a set up person inbetween normal set up and opening times, if that makes sense. Initially a carer (and still is) for our very regular and long term volunteer from Options Disability Support, he seems well able to turn his hand to just about anything Lois or I throw at him – haha! – and is rather a calming influence after the often crazy-busyness of the morning.

Expect to see this beautiful new logo on cards, a redesigned brochure, banners, aprons and t-shirts in the not too distant future. Some of these are already underway, thanks to another talented member in Steve Allison who is in the uniform and work wear industry and has assisted in the past with our printed t-shirts and those wonderful tea towels which are still available at co-op.
