Just as an appetiser, Mexicana Cheese will be at the Christchurch, Guildford and Winchester shows offering samples of their amazing HOT Cheeses along with demonstrations on how to use their cheese with various other products. Come and check it out! Cheese and Chilli straight from the farm, you can’t beat it, but if you get Cheese and Chilli’d out, we have a number of craft and shopping stalls, so in between enjoying your cheese and chilli, you can do some shopping! There is also a great selection of fast food all keeping to the cheese and chilli theme so no need to bring the picnic!

In the past we have teamed up with various charities to help local causes including Breast Cancer Haven who offer advice on practical things like money and work, help combatting stress, exhaustion and nausea, advice on healthy eating and exercise. Their trained professional nurses, therapists, counsellors and advisers listen to individual concerns and give practical, emotional and physical support. The support is free of charge and available in the beautiful Breast Cancer Haven centres. Each Visitor to Breast Cancer Haven can expect to receive up to ten free hours of therapy time. In addition, people will also receive two hours of nurse specialist time at the beginning and end of the tailored programme; The Challengers whose aim is to provide truly inclusive, fun and safe places where all disabled children and young people can spend time with their friends.  To offer a positive impact for families and the wider community.
