Community cookery skills class

Winchester City Council is offering another 6 week course of Community Cookery Skills classes.

These classes are aimed at men over 55 years of age and the course will provide its participants with simple ideas and tips on preparing uncomplicated healthy meals.

The course has had previous success in a number of areas across the Winchester District. Des Holyhead, who attended classes in Bishop’s Waltham, said:

My wife was going into hospital, so it was a case of either come on the course or starve!

The new classes will be held at Winchester Fire Station, Easton Lane, Winnall SO23 0LF. The weekly sessions will take place from 2pm-3.30pm, from Monday 19 September to Monday 24 October.

The course costs just £1 per session and all ingredients are provided.
