Eco-warrior Ruth Marley welcomed residents, businesses and local dignitaries to the launch event this morning (February 14).

Yummy, savoury treats were shared for people to gain a positive relationship with food.

The community kitchen at the resource centre, just off the A142, will be a place where nutritious home-cooked food is created.

Cookery classes will also be offered to reduce isolation, build community and build confidence and wellbeing.
