Kitchen Open Friday Night

With Peter’s departure, Ginny Coubrough has volunteered to occupy the kitchen for club night on Friday, 23rd February. She is looking forward to the challenge and as at time of print the menu is shaping up to include her children’s favourite – homemade lasagna, and for those wanting a lighter option, a Moroccan chicken salad.
