A tasty way to raise funds
Last year I was trying to think of ways to help Spittal Gardening Group raise some much-needed funds for its endeavours to help make Spittal a better place to live and came up with the idea of a book of old, traditional, Spittal recipes.
They would be ones that were easy to cook, tasty and healthy, and which could be enjoyed by both residents and visitors to Spittal alike.
We asked people to send in their favourite recipes and the response was tremendous.
The book is now on sale for £5 at Spittal Village Shop, Grieves the Stationer in Berwick, and from any member of the gardening group.
If you live further afield, you can also purchase it through the website spittalisgreat.co.uk by Paypal, or cheque to Spittal Improvement Trust.
The books are selling well and would make a perfect gift for friends and family.
I hope that when you are cooking the dishes you will remember our beautiful village of Spittal and happy times spent there.
