Latest News


Internet users are now getting used to the website and I have been delighted to exhibit pictures, advertise events, and pass on messages. I am able to see that these articles are being viewed which gets the message out far and wide.

I would love to see this gain momentum during 2018. What I'm really keen to get is your recipe contributions. To be honest, with the exception of one early one, during this year they've all been mine - which must be getting a bit boring. So send them in please. Use the link, mail me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (no direct link into this address from here) or simply ring me on 01237 451193. If you only have paper copy it doesn't matter - if you want to go into publication on this site, we can make it happen together.

Have a fantastic Christmas everyone. Thank you for your help in getting this off the ground in 2017 - it is actually coming up to it's first birthday!
