We are looking for a kind, fun and creative person to cover for our cook when she is on holiday or sick. Dates will generally be known in advance and you will have the support of a wonderful team of volunteers to help with preparation, serving and clearing up.

All ingredients are provided and no professional experience is necessary - just a level 2 certificate in Hygiene and Food Safety which can be done online - and a love of cooking good, basic , easy to eat dishes that would be familiar to our members.

Interested? Call Miriam on 527621 and arrange to come and see us. The hours would be 10am-2pm so perfect for the school run. Pay is above minimum wage and can be discussed further.

Welcome to all our new members and welcome back to all those who have returned! We still have availability on Mondays and Fridays.

Thank you to Berkshire Community Foundation for their grant of £5000 to help us pay for the upkeep of Elizabeth House and our utility bills. A warm heart needs a warm home! 

Twelve volunteers are booked to do the second in-house Emergency First Aid at Work course on Monday 19th September so Elizabeth House will be closed to members and visitors on that day. 

Thank you to our latest sponsor Home Instead Charities for their generous £500 grant towards our boating trips.
