The Westerham family only buying goods sourced in this country are hosting the first British Family Fayre this month.

James and Emily Bradshaw are inviting Bromley residents to join them for a day on August 31 to celebrate British produce, from fruit and veg to electronics and clothing.

The family hit headlines nationwide earlier this year after featuring in the Bromley Times, where they revealed their British only challenge was inspired by big, overseas corporations paying a pittance in tax.

With more than 40 stalls populated by companies such as Lush Cosmetics, King of Shaves and Comins Tea House - The Bradshaws have pulled off an impressive list of guests in just three months of organising.

The event also marks 30 years of The Prince’s Trust helping young people enterprise in the UK. The centre piece of the fayre will be a live auction of products donated by British companies.

These include a Union Jack signed by celebrities and business people, including Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.

The fayre, in Squerryes Court, Westerham, is free to enter and runs from 11am to 6pm. For more information, visit
