Cooking Made Fun and Easy is a four week course offering participants the opportunity to learn how to cook on a budget, cook for one, avoid food waste and to cook healthier meals; it will be run in a fun and friendly group environment.

The course will be run at Cullompton Community Centre, Pye Corner, Cullompton, EX15 1JX on the following dates:

  • 23rd November, 30th November & 14th December from 12.30pm – 2.30pm to prepare and share lunch.

The cost per session is £3.50. As places are limited, booking is essential.

Penny Scoynes, Westbank Healthy Neighbourhoods, said

“Cooking Made Fun and Easy is a great initiative aimed at getting people together to learn how to cook healthy meals from scratch which they will then share over lunch”.

Penny went on to say

“We are also looking for volunteers to support this activity. If cooking is your thing, then we would love to have you as a volunteer to help participants benefit from the course by sharing your knowledge and enjoyment of cooking with them”.
