The latest news from Redbridge’s clubs and societies.

St Margaret 3rd Cub and Beaver Scouts

Scouts learned about healthy eating and making bread at a supermarket.

The children took part in a Farm to Fork workshop at Tesco in Cranbrook Road, Barkingside, and learned about fruit, before sampling some healthy snacks.

Jessica Langham, the Tesco workshop’s organiser, showed the scouts how bread is baked and stored at the supermarket, before the scouts tried some smoky barbecue bread.

Zak Martin, 14, a scouts young leader, said: “I definitely enjoyed the evening and learning about where food comes from – it was a good insight into how Tesco manages its food.”

The group, which is based at St Margaret’s Church in Balfour Road, Ilford, is calling on young people and adults to have fun, learn skills and run programmes with the group.
