  1. I think the culinary cook off is the 14th, not 18th of April. It is such a great fundraiser for the school I would hate for anyone to miss it .

  2. Plant based butcher! Hmmmm. So totally not a butcher then? I am so confused. How can this be a thing? Surely they can come up with a suitable name to describe a valuable service that teaches people to love their veg! Dictionary definition of butcher is; a person whose trade is cutting up and selling meat in a shop.

    Sorry for the rant!
