25th July 2020 ~ What a week this has been… breaking news…after many months of lockdown and the inevitable challenges this has brought for all of us, we are thrilled to announce that we are now a Registered Charity!


This gives us a real boost that others get what we are doing and is an endorsement of our objectives.  Now the fun begins… and of course the enormous task of having to taste all the food our amazing chef is putting before us. You can all weep as you have to wait until early next year!
