Meet your Parish Councillors Monthly Drop-in - November

This month's drop-in is with Cllr Felicity Parnham (CK Futures Lead and Vice Chair of the Parish Council) and Cllr Jan Honeywill (Chair of the Parish Council). We hope that a day-time drop in might be helpful for residents who are unable to attend the Council Meetings in the evening or who prefer a more informal setting. Though the drop-in is loosely themed around CK Futures as Cllr Parnham is there to answer any related questions, our Cllrs are happy to talk about anything relating to the work of the Parish Council.

Cllrs Parnham and Honeywill will be available to talk from 10.30am - 12.00pm.

Sustainable Living Workshop - Food

Wednesday 2nd November, 7.00 - 9.00pm

Join us for a nutritious meal at the Front Community Café in the second of this series of Sustainable Living workshops. We will eat and discuss the impact of our choice of food, both on the planet and on our health.

We will look at what we eat, how our food is grown and what impact food production (and waste) has on the environment.

How much difference does vegetarianism/veganism make? Is organic and free-range better? Is it always best to buy locally produced?

We will share practical tips on reducing food waste and recipe ideas for lower impact eating.

Come and enjoy some delicious food and share your experiences, favourite dishes, and thoughts about how we can eat well and sustainably.

There is no charge for these workshops but a donation of £10 per person is suggested for this Food workshop to cover the cost of the meal provided. The meal with be plant-based and attendees should inform the hosts on arrival of any allergies.
