Calling all Volunteers
WITH winter now upon us, maybe you have a littler more time than in those long summer days, maybe you have thought of joining a volunteer group or finding a winter interest, but you don’t know which one?
Help is at hand our local councils offer listings of many local groups, everything from Arts to Yoga! The listings have no recommendation from the councils in any way. They cover a very wide range of subjects with charities such as Rotary and Round table, Citizen’s Advice advisors, Scout leaders, Alzheimers fund raisers and many more. There are local groups such as Ramblers,
Tennis, Bowls, Judo, Hockey, Amateur Dramatics so if your interest is joining a voluntary club there is lots to choose from with the added benefit of getting some additional exercise and meeting new people.

SIMPLE HOME MADE BREAD Sift 500g of white strong flour into a large bowl
Sprinkle evenly a 7g sachet of fast acting dried yeast and mix evenly through the flour.
Slowly pour in 300ml of warm water stirring to bring the dough together, add a splash of olive oil as you mix the dough. Don’t worry if all the flour is not taken into the dough.
Tip out onto a lightly floured surface and knead the dough into the remaining flour, Keep working the dough, pulling and stretching it until you have an even rugby ball shaped dough.
Place on a lightly oiled tray and leave in a warm place for about 40 minutes until it has doubled in size.
Preheat your oven to 220C. Cut lines in the top of the dough and dust with flour. Bake until browned. When fully baked test the loaf by taping the bottom it should sound hollow.
