All sessions are free but donations are always gratefully received.

The first is at the Masonic Hall, on South Street, Axminster at 11am on Wednesday, January 9.

This cooking demonstration, by Ian Simpson from Charmouth’s White House Hotel, is for anyone who wants to learn to cook more healthily for themselves. Everyone will enjoy a full sit down meal at the end of the session.

The second course at Seaton on Thursday, January 10, is especially aimed at carers, although you don’t need to be a registered one to attend.

It takes place at 11am at the Marshlands Centre on Harbour Road.
