My family and I have lived in Portishead for the last 6 years, I feel like I’ve lived here longer as I went to Slade Road Primary but moved to London when I was little. With all my extended family living here, I came back for every school holiday which is why I have such a soft spot for this great town/village (!). I love living here and the sense of community, I truly can’t imagine living any where else.
My background is in event management and have never worked in a shop, so opening Fill Good Pantry was a pretty exciting idea! Vicki and I are really proud to be able to bring this to the High Street and are really looking forward to opening the doors to you all!
I think that everyone can make small steps in reducing their waste and looking after the environment, changing habits isn’t easy but worth it!
My first step in reducing my family's waste
We’ve always recycled as much as possible, but after noticing more and more plastic and rubbish EVERYWHERE my eldest and I decided to stop buying into the problem. I stopped buying fruit and veg which was wrapped in packaging and shopped with our local green grocer and along with taking our own containers to our local butchers meant the non-recyclable plastic was pretty much erased from our wheely bin! With two youngsters and tea addicts in the house we go through gallons of milk a week, instead of buying plastic bottles in the supermarket we switched to a traditional milk delivery in glass bottles!
My perfect day
I can’t remember when I last had a lie in, so one of those would be great! I love being by the sea so an afternoon on the beach either wrapped up against the elements looking for creatures with the kids, or mucking about in the sunshine would be my choice, followed by a huge roast where I don’t have to do the washing up…
Pour me a...
Gin and lemonade with cucumber slices please!
