Bread recipes

Foraging Map of North Cambridge

Word Fun

Members of the Kettle Club, a social group who meet on the first Tuesday of the month, 10.30 – 12 noon at St George’s Church Hall, have been working with Kettle’s Yard artist Rosanna Martin.  Together they have been discussing activities which might make you feel relaxed and like your old self.  Many Kettle Club members enjoy doing word games and have created some for you to try.
