    The area behind me was just full of mainly ivy, covering the first 4-6 of the shed and the whole back area… clearing it as added 3-400 square feet of garden!

    I need to now clear the ivy roots from the soil and it’s like clearing the body of all the rubbish we put in. And hopefully the exercise will burn off some of the fat.

    I managed to start getting some videos done when I had a few days off work and... Continue reading

    Soup Project - January

    by LornaHS, over 1 year ago
    In January we held another 2 soup sessions and were joined by around 12 residents. We now have a regaulr group of volunteers joining us which is great!


    The residents are all really enjoying taking part, and not only enjoying the soup but meeting new people and visiting different places as well. Following on from a january session one resident has bought himself a soup maker and is already making his own soups! Another has tried the one left at the scheme and loved how easy it was to use.

    Chair Yoga Update

    by UnwindYS, over 1 year ago
    Hello - we are continuing out chair yoga (yoga for people with limited mobility) and have gained a couple of new participants. It has been slower this month, with participants not coming out as much when it is cold or icy or raining, but when the sun is out, people do show up happily, so we are hoping to fill every chair again soon (as spring is on the way, promise!).


    See you soon,

    DraughtBusters - same as GhostBusters but for Draughts!

    by DaveScarbrough, over 1 year ago

    DraughtBusters will fix the draughts in your home for FREE so you should feel warmer and spend less money on your heating.

    This a service offered by local residents for local residents. Draughty homes can feel cold and increase the energy required to heat them. Through DraughtBusters, a trained resident will come and survey your property and undertake basic draughtproofing. This will save you money, make your home feel more comfortable and reduce carbon emissions.

    DraughtBusters are so popular because of the huge rise in energy prices we need some more helpers. Anyone can be a DraughtBuster as full training... Continue reading

    Savvy Slow Cooking

    by Danielle, over 1 year ago


    Today saw the start of the Savvy Slow Cooking Course, the course was fully booked and people attended to watch the preparation of a Chilli bean chilli for the slow cooker. The tutor discussed safe freezing, and re-heating of food and how to adjust recipes to taste and the size of a household.

    Everyone that attended asked lots of questions, tips were shared and a bag with all the ingredients taken home to try out themselves.

    We look forward to learning more next week!
