Fun Summer Projects from Eat That Frog

(Last Updated On: August 7, 2018)

Paignton’s ‘Eat that Frog’ are promoting two fun-sounding – and informative – summer projects.

Frogs and Tadpoles

‘Give your baby a great start in life!’ they say. ‘Learn about cooking and nutrition to keep you and your baby healthy in this friendly group!’

Using ingredients donated by Morrison’s Supermarket, you’ll prepare and cook tasty meals and snacks, learn how to feed your family on a budget, and get a chance to explore your personal goals.

‘This weekly group will empower you to be the parent you want to be!’ they add. ‘Meet other local mums, take part in fun activities and get support with the things that make a real difference to your life in a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment.’

The programme runs on Tuesdays 9.30am – 1.00pm at The Pad in Paignton (opposite Victoria Park) and is FREE to anyone in receipt of benefits. Refreshments will be provided, too.

Apart from five years studying in Oxford I’ve lived most of my life in London where for many years I was Head of English in a prestigious girls’ school, but since taking early retirement and heading West to be nearer to my two daughters - settling in Torbay with my wife, Anna, in 2011 - I’ve worked in the voluntary sector. I took on the role of Service Provider, for example, promoting the Red Cross Torbay Navigators Project, while now I’m a Trustee and part of the Media Team for our local Healthwatch. I’m a governor at Torquay Academy, too, giving me the chance to stay up to date with what’s happening in the world of education. Other interests, aside from friends and family, include art and art history, reading - from contemporary fiction and poetry to Elizabethan/Jacobean literature - history, politics, cooking, walking, and music, in particular Bob Dylan, the blues, and early Elvis. I love writing, too, with one novel published so far – Elvis in Wonderland – and another, Who’s There?, that still needs plenty of work!
