A Market Weighton man is at the heart of a new campaign to get more people into growing their own food.

Former farmer Mark Thompson, of York Road, has set up the new website, which is aimed at anyone wanting to enjoy the benefits of growing their own food, whether it’s on an allotment, in a garden, in patio pots or even window sills.

Mr Thompson said: “Our aim is to put the seasonality back in your diet by guiding you through how to grow vegetables all year round with just as little as a few hours input each week. You can follow our progress in the coming weeks and watch our video diary on the website.”
