Feedback from participants:
I love coming to this cookery group as I have made friends here and as we have a common interest they’re going to be long lasting friendships. I’ve learned new skills, tasted amazing food and had a great opportunity to share my skills and experiences. I also love being here as I can fully be myself with no worries, which is great after spending all my time with a toddler whose hobby is climbing everything!
Coming to this class I have learned that deep down we are all the same no matter where we come from. We share all the same joys and sorrows and we make each other smile.
