The new kitchen is now open to all users and compared to the previous design…..well there is no comparison! You can see from the pictures above that it is lighter and brighter, has more storage space and work surfaces, better equipment and lighting.
The kitchen is open but adjustments will continue, so it will remain a ‘work in progress’ for some time to come. As users (especially Sunday Teas users) get to grips with the new layout and facilities we expect them to ask for changes and fixes which we will endeavour to implement. It is totally usable but there is always room for improvement.
I am indebted to the Kitchen Team for all their ideas and hard work (under the project management of Colin Carter) that made the new kitchen possible. We also thank our builder Bryan Field, who along with Phil the Plumber, made an excellent job of fitting the new kitchen and to Ben Entwistle for doing such a brilliant job on the electrics. We are also grateful to Veolia Environmental Trust for a grant of £7200 and to our own Parish Council for their contribution of £5000, which made the whole project viable.
"Health is Wealth"
There are lots of different ways of keeping fit. Try something new in 2017!
You could dance
- try Line dancing, Dance aerobics, Jive, Appalacian Dance, Tango or even (if you are aged 2-6, Ballet) - all in our Village Hall
It is important to also keep the brain active - try Bridge or the Community Observatory or enjoy craft, book club or monthly talks with the WI and/or try some of the the wide range of activities run by St John's Church.
You don't have to sit at home. Have a look in the Newsletter or on this website and see if there is something that interests you.
If you don't find anything that catches your interest - why don't you organise a new activity or an event? Have a word with Trish Adams to see if the CA Social Group can help you get started.
