Stockport-based catering equipment supplier Stephensons is to star in a TV documentary due to air on BBC One.
The family-run company has been chosen by the BBC to appear in a show called The Village SOS presented by property developer and broadcaster Sarah Beeny.
The series is a partnership between the BBC and the BIG Lottery Fund and shows six enterprising rural villages reviving their local communities through new business ventures, with the help of a £400,000 grant.
The show follows members of one winning project, Taste Tideswell, picking catering equipment from Stephensons to kit out its Tideswell School of Food.
It is hoped that the project will teach local people how to grow, cook and sell good food, with the aim of transforming Tideswell into a community sustained by its own economy.
Stephensons, which boasts a large catering equipment showroom and cash and carry facility in the North-West, has supplied equipment to kit out both the teaching and community kitchens at the Tideswell School of Food.
Henry Stephenson, marketing director at Stephensons, said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for Stephensons. We are delighted to be a part of such a proactive community project like this one, which has everyone pulling together to improve its local economy.”
