Starting 3rd August, Community Market at the Malvern Hills GeoCentre (Wyche Cutting) from 9am – 11am on the first Saturday of every month.
It will be free for both buyers and sellers with an aim of encouraging community use of produce and generally strengthening the community (and follows on the previous West Malvern version).
See GeoCentre website for more info.
UPDATE at October 2013: the Market has been discontinued – not enough space and not quite working as intended.

Transition Malvern Hills and Malvern Hills Repair Café are working together to organise the first Green fair in Malvern – the Malvern Hills Communities Fair!
The aim of this one day event is to raise awareness of and celebrate local environmental initiatives, particularly the efforts of those individuals, voluntary groups and businesses who are contributing to the sustainability of the Malvern Hills communities.
Malvern Hills Communities Fair will take place on Saturday 21 September 2013 at Malvern Cube. There will be themed areas based on different environmental issues such as waste, energy, transport and food and a variety of different workshops, presentations, children’s activities and entertainment will take place throughout the day. Stalls will be available for a small charge.
We would welcome more volunteers to join us on the organising committee as we want to ensure that this will be an event that Malvern will remember!
