New kitchen at Weoley Castle Community Centre!

We’ve been busy during the most recent lockdown getting our kitchen refurbished ready for re-opening. This new modern kitchen will benefit our plans for more cooking and healthy eating courses, as well as continuing our work to support local families effected by food poverty and finally, our aspirations to develop a volunteer led community café!
