The first Kindling Late

Dinner at Woodbank

Last Saturday saw us host our first Kindling Late over at Woodbank, and what a success it was!

Our new(ish) Community Programme Coordinator, Naomi, spent the day at Woodbank cooking up a delicious vegan meal for the hardworking volunteers who had spent the day building the pergola over the seating area.

As dusk set in, the tent was set with flowers and candles, making a truly magical atmosphere for eating al fresco (it was quite fresco!) Everyone enjoyed a warm bowl of chilli and lime rice, with nachos, corn and tomato salsa, and guacamole, followed by a warming apple crumble with coconut custard. 

A quote from the night was "The contented clang of spoon on dish!" when he finished his crumble! 

It was lovely to see the hub during sunset and into the evening, you experience different sights and sounds than in the day.

We're super excited to be organising a whole host more Kindling Late sessions this Spring and Summer for you to come and enjoy our little corner of paradise in all its evening glory. Just head to our website to register your spot for these -

We'd also like to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped build our fabulous and long-awaited pergola, including Lance, our woodworking friend, who helped lead the session. We can't wait to plant some beautiful climbers to decorate it!
