King’s Court Masonic Lodge

Many thanks to Roger from the King’s Court Masonic Lodge who presented Bones and Hipp!!Bones with a cheque to pay for the cost of installing a shared cooker.  Frustratingly, over the past year we have only been able to cook on a shared hob, or using other appliances such as a toaster or smoothie maker, but with creative planning we have managed to sustain member’s enthusiasm for cooking. Now we can extend on this to cook simple meals and snacks, developing members life skills as they transition into adulthood.
