“I’m pleased we can bring it back to an area where it has already been well received and am grateful for the support the Purfleet Trust is giving this event.“The increasing cost of living continues to affect all of us and these free-to-attend sessions mean people can drop-in to them and pick up helpful saving tips about how to cook healthy and tasty food without breaking the bank. “It’s also a great way to meet new people and make friends.“I know many residents in Downham, Hunstanton, North Lynn, South Lynn, Gaywood and the centre of Lynn have appreciated these Food for Thought visits and I want to see them continue to help as many of our West Norfolk residents as possible.”Norma’s Kitchen will be running the session with themed cooking demonstrations and tips.There will be activities for young pre-school children and refreshments. Drop in between 10am and 11am.For details email asklily@west-norfolk.gov.uk or call the Lily service on 01553 616200.
