Addressing lockdown isolation and improving mental wellbeing through cooking
“Sadly it has been a difficult time for many of our most-vulnerable people in Northam, but innovative projects like cooking has helped massively. Young people, husbands, wives and their children have participated in these sessions. A big thank you to all the volunteers. We caught up the tutor and asked her some questions.” – Northam Local Conversation [Links to Facebook page]
