BALLEE residents are brushing up on their culinary skills at a new cookery class funded by the Housing Executive.
The community cookery club, organised by Seven Towers Community Association in Ballymena, has been set up to bring young and older people together to learn new skills.
Nikki Jordan from the community group said: "The cookery class is proving really popular, residents have the opportunity to learn new skills and learn how to cook healthy food options with the produce they grow in the community allotments.
“Many local people have lost traditional cooking skills and become dependent on takeaways and processed foods.
“The cookery club is changing these habits and introducing people to new recipes in a fun and friendly environment.
“Young people are joining the classes too and new inter-generational relationships are being fostered."
