Residents of Hellesdon are invited to prepare for winter at the Heat and Eat event at the Hellesdon Community Centre on Middleton’s Lane on Tuesday 29 November from 12pm to 3pm.
The event, which is hosted by Broadland District Council’s Grow Your Community project and Hellesdon Parish Council is open to all residents and will offer a free lunch to visitors whilst they meet with friends and learn some useful tips to keep safe and warm this winter.
A variety of local organisations will be present at the Heat and Eat event including Age UK, The Joy of Food, Norfolk Library Service, Handyperson+, Norfolk Constabulary and the Sing Your Heart Out Community Choir to talk to residents about services available in the area.
Broadland District Council’s energy team advisers will also be on hand to offer tips on how to save money on energy bills. For more accurate advice, it is suggested that residents bring their most recent energy bill along with them to the Heat and Eat event.
Free slow cooking workshops will also be on offer to some residents. Slow cooking is an easy and energy efficient way to cook meals. The workshops will be run by a qualified nutritionist and will show residents how simple and inexpensive these meals are to prepare.
Residents will have the chance to try some new recipes and taste the results. Sessions are free to anyone who is in receipt of means tested benefits and is over 65 or has a long term health issue. All ingredients will be provided and participants will be able to take a new slow cooker away with them.
All residents are welcome to drop in to the free Heat and Eat event on Tuesday 29th November.
