Buckie:

We ran a Confidence To Cook Course in August 2008 aimed at young single mums.  This was a partnership project, Moray Council Community Learning & Development provided staffing, Moray Council Local Community Network (LCN) paid for childcare costs and Moray Council CLD Community Capacity Building budget paid for venue and material costs.  We have checked and there are no records for either LCN or CCB budgets for this period to calculate costings.

Family cooking ran in May- June 2008 and focussed on single parent/children cooking together. Moray Council Community Learning & Development provided staffing, Moray Council CLD Community Capacity Building budget paid for venue and material costs.  We have checked and there are no records for CCB budgets in this period to calculate costings.

Speyside:
