Residents get fresh on Crewe estate
A group of mums have been learning how to prepare fresh food and cook delicious nutritious meals thanks to a healthy eating cookery course held at the Community Bungalow on Crewe’s Sherborne estate.
The “Let’s get fresh” sessions were run by local housing association, Wulvern in partnership with Christian Concern and Monks Coppenhall Children’s Centre using mostly produce grown in the Greenspaces community urban garden at the rear of the Bungalow by residents on the estate.
As well as cookery skills, the mums learned how to get savvy with their shopping and plan meals for the week around household budgets whilst their children enjoyed interactive play with staff from the local Children’s Centre.
Organiser Cheryl Wykes from Christian Concern said: “We’ve had great fun learning about cooking on a budget for all the family and the smart ways you can create numerous meals from basic ingredients including how to ‘hide’ vegetables!”
