March 2014 Update

March has seen a steady increase in sales of our excellent soup bags. All you need to make a delicious nutritious pot of soup for 4, with a simple recipe to follow, for the fantastic price of £1! The Walking Group has just come back through the door after a sunny, blustery outing to Hailes Quarry Park and back. They’re very much enjoying their cup of tea and a friendly blether!

The cooking and exercise classes have been going really well – with some very delicious meals cooked. Next week (31st March 2014) is the last session of the term, and we’ll resume after a 2 week break for Easter. The cooking sessions with a free bookable creche are still taking place on a Tues morning 10am – 12 noon, but the exercise sessions also with a free bookable creche are now taking place on a Tuesday afternoon from 1.30-2.30pm. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more about any of the sessions.

We’re also very much on the hunt for Volunteer Shop Assistants for our fruit & veg shop, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. We ask volunteers to commit to a minimum of just four hours a week. Fancy meeting new people and learning new skills? Looking to build up your work experience or get some routine back in your week? This could be the perfect opportunity for you! If you’re interested, or would like more information, pop in to the shop for a chat with Caroline or call on 0131
