Cookery Clubs



CSF runs free after-school family cookery sessions, Thyme to Cook. Families cook and eat together with volunteers on hand to entertain the smallest children who are too young to cook. The sessions are usually led by our workshop organiser Leanne, and families learn new skills and how to cook healthily on a tight budget. The workshops are free, and food is provided. Please see below for more information on our sessions and volunteering opportunities.


For families living in Arbury and Kings Hedges
4-6pm after school on Tuesdays. This is an ongoing cookery club, started in January 2016 and continuing until the end of 2017.
Where? Arbury Community Centre, Campkin Road, Cambridge, CB4 2LD

Other free cookery workshops: We also run a number of free cookery workshops in various parts of the city, funded by Cambridge City Council. Where these are open to the public, we advertise in the local area, but sometimes these are closed groups, with participants recruited by the Council workers and by Children’s Centres. These have been with families, young people and older people in assisted living.




We are looking for volunteers to help at sessions. For more information please see our Get Involved page, and contact if interested. We’d love to hear from you!
