Cllr. Karen Clark [a member of BbC] and I had a meeting with Sean, the new manager of Somerfield in Banchory this afternoon. 

He told us that the Banchory store had already cut it’s usage of plastic bags by 20%, but he said that he was aiming to cut it further – hopefully to 60% – and we said we would do anything we could to help him achieve this.

He had recently been at a conference with other managers and said that he had heard of three Somerfield stores which had, or were trying, to become pbf.  He had talked with his Regional Manager, who was in favour of the endeavour, and Sean plans to talk with the Regional Manager for Durham [which is one of the stores attempting to go pbf] this week, and will report back to Karen and myself early next week.

Both Karen and I felt that the meeting had been very useful.
