A very busy month with the fruit and veg shop attracting lots of interest with its Christmas Cake Recipe Bag – all the ingredients you need to make a delicious fruit cake for just £2.75, along with the simple recipe.
The cookery classes have also been very popular with Caroline our Cooking Tutor running sessions at St Joseph’s Primary school for their Rising Two’s project – local parents with children under the age of two. Also the Tuesday morning classes at St Davids Church have been going really well, with a real cross culture mix of people. They had great fun making the cakes one week and then decorating them the following week.
We had some great news too from the Scottish Government’s People & Communities Fund, who have agreed to fund our cookery and also exercise sessions for the next 18 months. So we’ve also recruited another Community Development Worker to help support these sessions. The New Year will be a great time to kick start that healthier regime for folk in SW Edinburgh!
