Ashburton cafes and restaurants are helping to raise funds for local causes by participating in the Portreeve's Pick.
Sean Wilson, Ashburton's 1201st Portreeve, says : "As we all endeavor to get back to normality after the challenges of the last two years I want to do something to support the businesses in our town that have supported their community throughout the pandemic.
When you eat out at participating pubs and restaurants in Ashburton, look out for the "Portreeve's Pick" on the menu. When you choose the “Portreeve’s Pick”, part of the proceeds are donated to support important local causes - it all adds up and a little goes a long way! Not only will you be supporting a local business - you will be raising funds to help our community!
It's a great way to help the businesses in our town, to enable them to support our community and to enjoy yourself at the same time - everyone wins!"
Participating businesses currently include :
The Bay Horse
The Dartmoor Lodge
