Since last Spring, TDC have been supporting a Mens’ (+ now Women’s) Discussion Group which meets at the Vallance Community Centre in Hove. The group has hosted guest speakers from the ‘Argus’ Archive, British Legion and the Co-Op Estates Management Service and now have a sub-group, studying the world of breadmaking at the nearby Stoneham Bakehouse under the leadership of Bakehouse founder Simon Cobb.
TDC’s Community Development Worker Mark Drayton says “Baking Bread has never been such fun for this Over 50’s discussion group. They are nearing the end of a 6 week course supported by the Healthy Neighbourhood Fund. They have learnt new skills and made new friends, and one thing is for sure; whether it’s bloomers, plaited breads or cinnamon buns the results are very tasty!”
