Covid-19 safety measures

This class takes place after 19th July when social distancing rules and other covid-related regulations are removed. If new restrictions are announced, we will adapt our procedures according to the latest government guidelines and any updates will be sent by email and listed on our website. Our Kitchen space continues to be kept to a very high standard of cleaning and hygiene regardless.

Note: If you are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable, current government advice recommends avoiding contact with unvaccinated people. Please note small venues cannot request or guarantee the vaccination status of everyone attending events, so please take this into consideration.

This course will likely run again over the next year, further details will be announced on our website and in our email newsletters.

This project is funded by The Big Lottery Community Fund and is part of a national project Ready, Healthy, Eat led by The Real Farming Trust and working with organisations in Edinburgh, Waltham Forest and Belfast.
