Vicar cooks lunches for community

Published

on

screen-shot-2016-09-12-at-12-39-13CHRISTOPHER FROST, the vicar in training in St Mary’s Church, Cardigan, will be trading in his dog collar for chef’s whites this month as the church is reintroducing its monthly lunches for the community. 

Before Christopher joined the church, he worked in kitchens and restaurants in Cardiff and Aberystwyth both as a manager and a chef. He said: “When I’m in the kitchen, and things seem to be getting a bit too hot to handle, I try to inspire myself by imagining what a veteran chef like Gordon Ramsay would do in the situation.

“I try to keep my language a lot cleaner than his as I’m working though!”

Community lunches held at the church have been successful in the past as they have brought people within the community together; in particular, people who don’t often get the opportunity to leave the house or families looking for a good value lunch.

“We want to keep our lunches relaxed, enjoyable and very affordable, and to keep welcoming everyone in the community to join us, whoever they might be. Our team want to do it because it’s our way of trying to share with the community the love we’ve experienced from God in our own lives,” said Christopher.

The first lunch will be served at 12.30pm in St Mary’s Church Hall on Tuesday (Sept 6) where a cooked lunch and a dessert will cost just £3 and vegetarian options will be available.

Council supports the Learning Disabilities ‘My Charter’

Published

on

CABINET members and senior officers in Ceredigion have signed ‘My Charter’. In doing so, Ceredigion County Council have become the first council to sign up to the charter. My Charter was written by people who have learning disabilities in West Wales.

The charter says that people who have learning disabilities want to have more chances in life, more choice and to be listened to. It also says that people who have learning disabilities want to be treated as adults, to be given dignity and respect and that their information is kept private.

Councillor Alun Williams is the Cabinet member responsible for Adult Services. He said: “People with learning disabilities have the same aspirations, hopes and feelings as everyone else. They deserve the same services and to be treated equally in a way that’s appropriate to their needs. I’m delighted that Ceredigion has become the first council to sign the charter, and I’m looking forward to seeing how this can positively influence the way our population of people with learning disabilities are treated in the future.”

The charter was developed by people who have learning disabilities from across Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.
