What's on

Community Kitchen

Every Saturday at for 1 hour
St Mary's Church, Arnold
Church Lane Arnold Nottingham, NG5 8HJ, United Kingdom

With the challenges of living with COVID in our community over the last year or so, St.Mary's started up a Community Kitchen towards the end of 2021 to help all those living in our community who are struggling with the cost of living, employment etc.

Gedling Borough Council very kindly helped with some equipment and now nearly every Saturday, from 12.15 pm to 1.30 pm, our volunteers provide a hot cooked meal for all those in need.

If you are struggling to feed yourself or your family or you know someone who is, do come along to the Community Kitchen, which is next to thr church, on the Saturday morning.
