Cooking Skills Classes
- Mon 14th May 2012
An eight-week cookery skills course starting 10th May at Gorseway Care Community Home, 354, Sea Front Hayling Island from 2 – 3.30pm is on offer to men 55 years or over who would like to gain simple ideas and tips on preparing healthy meals.
Organised by Havant Borough Council in partnership with Hampshire County Council’s Older People’s Well-Being Team and The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre. Gorseway Care Community (part of the Barchester Group) has kindly agreed to host the course free of charge.
The pilot programme of cookery classes, covering basic cookery skills, food storage, reheating, freezing etc are being offered across Hampshire and arranged locally by District Councils.
Nicki Conyard, community team leader at Havant Borough Council said; “We are particularly hoping to attract men who may be living alone, have become recently bereaved or who suddenly find themselves needing to take over the cooking but who may have no experience or confidence.”
“The classes will be in a friendly relaxed atmosphere and include how to cook a range of simple healthy meals.”
If these cooking skills classes are popular, The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre aim to incorporate this element into a wider Reaching Communities bid focused on many activities for older residents.
