New Body Positive class

Our Body Positive class has been so popular that we have created a second class. Led by Bobbie, the class uses a chair as a prop to strengthen every muscle in the body. They have a good laugh and many go to the Winton’s Cafe afterwards which has been an unexpected bonus of holding the classes at Winton House. Some of our attendees have also roped their husbands into coming along. We run the classes in blocks of 6 weeks on a Friday morning for £30. Do let us know if you would like to join the next group.

Mens’ Cookery

The new Men’s Cookery classes are a joint venture with Age Concern, the Men’s Shed and Winton House. At the pilot class in January six men came together to make spaghetti bolognese from scratch and enjoyed a glass of red wine afterwards as they ate together. The next class focused on making a chicken curry. We will be running more of these in the future so let us know if you would like to learn how to prep and cook tasty meals and impress your loved ones and friends!

Christmas Cheer

Congratulations to Marian, our cook, who prepared a delicious Christmas lunch for 60 of our lunch club members, and for the recorder trio for their entertainment. It was a massive achievement to cook for so many, helped by our wonderful team of volunteers. As you can see our clients also got into the Christmas spirit! A big thank you also to Waitrose who paid for everyone’s meal.

New drivers wanted

Can you spare a Wednesday morning once a month to drive our minibus? This is to take people into town so they can do their shopping. It’s a lovely group of people, and a very rewarding role. Induction training given, and the option to do MiDAS training. Contact Sheridan to have an initial chat.

Thank you, Waitrose!

Lunch club clients were absolutely thrilled when Marian, our cook, announced that a donation from Waitrose meant half price meals for three weeks. A freshly cooked two course meal was available for just £3. There was a buzz of appreciation around the room. Thank you Waitrose - it really made a difference.
