We're kitting out the Kitchen! Update No. 6
Finally, the fitters are in. Work installing the Community Kitchen has started (see picture below) - and so far we’re bang-on schedule for our late May launch events.
This despite the heart-stopping moment when the builders clearing our space in the Community Base building told us they had found asbestos. We’ve now been given our clean bill of health and it’s all systems go. Follow us on social media @btnhovefood to keep up to date as the building works progress.
As a crowdfund supporter, we’re going to give you advance notice for booking the first batch of exciting courses. We have been busy connecting with new chefs and food experts who want to pass on their cookery secrets, and we can't wait for you to see our full programme for June to October. We'll send an update on this list to give you all priority booking for a limited period, once courses are open for booking in about 4 weeks' time.
And to make sure you don’t miss out on future news and courses, sign up to our fortnightly newsletter on the Food Partnership’s website.
For those who need to claim crowdfund rewards, we will be in touch soon with details – from dates for masterclasses to course vouchers. Community Kitchen merchandise will be available for collection from the Kitchen from late May onwards.
And a special thanks to those who chose to 'pay it forward'. With your help we have funding of £1,100 for people to attend courses they otherwise couldn't afford. We'll be distributing this via a bursary scheme once courses are open for booking. Your support means we're also making plans for more community cookery courses for people who can particularly benefit from cooking and sharing good food.
More news soon but in the meantime check out the new home for the Community Kitchen on our website – we're starting to get enquiries about venue hire, group activities like parties and away days, and more. We'd love to hear from you with your ideas for classes or activities you want to see in the Kitchen.
Thank you from all the team at the Food Partnership.
