Councillor Tricia Youtan, Horsham District cabinet member for community matters and wellbeing, said: “The coronavirus outbreak has prompted many of us to reflect and think more seriously about our health.

“By eating healthily you can dramatically cut your risk of becoming ill and cooking for yourself from scratch is also very cost effective. Eating healthily can also impact your mental wellbeing.

“I am really pleased that we are launching these new cookery courses which will be beneficial on so many levels and would urge as many of you as possible to sign up and take part.”

The courses are aimed at people/households with very little or no cooking skills who want to gain confidence in the kitchen, develop cookery skills and improve their knowledge around healthy eating and food waste, whilst having fun in a safe, online environment.

Spaces are limited. To register or for more information email [email protected] or call 01403 215111.
