Mapping Bungay Wellbeing Walk – Sunday 14th 11am-1pm

Give&Grow and Well-Being Walk May 2013 17 Sitting on the Bench Just to let you know that this month’s wellbeing walk will be hosted by Tony Dawes of the NR35 action group.

As well as following our usual formula of meeting up and deciding where everyone would like to go, our circular route will include one or two Bungay playgrounds (guided by Tony). NR35 are looking at some of these grassy (and sometimes neglected) areas. in the light of wellbeing and reconnection with nature, and so we thought this would be a great to team up and do a reccy.

The walk will start outside Jesters Cafe by Castle Meadow (11am-1pm). You are also invited join the following Bees and Teas session at the Community Library Garden, organised by Lesley of The Edible Garden and Bungay Community Bees (2-4pm).

See you there!

About the Arts, Cutlure and Wellbeing group

The ACW group was launched this year (2012) at our January Green Drinks where we discussed a range of activities, walks and workshops around the theme of wellbeing. These range from the Koru movement class and discussion about the Gift Economy we held March and to our future talks on the Artist and the Community and Taking the Plunge in the River Waveney!

Everything we do is free and open to anyone. Our wellbeing mappping of Bungay project will run all year, starting with a series of monthly walks, finding, recording and celebrating all the great places and green spaces in the town (see calendar for meeting places and times).

If you’d like to get involved with organising and documenting the map, do get in touch.

It’s our BIGGEST ever Happy Monday!

A feast of local food prepared and served in the Bungay Festival Marquee

15th July | 6:30pm – 9:30pm

Happy Mondays with the Community Kitchen is more than a meal, it’s a monthly celebration of the best in local and seasonal food in great company.

In July the Community Kitchen will be setting up its big table in the Festival Marquee and cooking a two-course feast for 100. The marquee will be decorated with garden flowers, the food will be cooked on site and there will be a bar selling local beer, cider and apple juice. Expect a warm welcome and delicious food!

For this extra-special event there will be a licensed bar in the Marquee selling local beer, cider and apple juice.

As ever the meal is £5 for 2 courses (including some of Mark Watson’s famous Herbal Refresher, but not including drinks from the bar).

The meal will be served at 7pm as usual, but we’re asking people to arrive a little earlier – 6:30 – to allow us to greet everyone and help get people seated.

We’ll be serving a herby summer vegetable barley risotto with Baron Bigod cheese; a radish, tomato and cucumber salad; a green leaf and edible flower salad and a courgette and carrot slaw with horseradish and yoghurt. The dessert will be marinated strawberries and cream.

The bar will be serving Lightweight, brewed by the Waveney Brewing Company in Earsham and Aspall’s cider.
