Another day and another food-based social enterprise that I get the pleasure of working with, it’s a hard life! The Feed are well known in Norwich and quite rightly as their food is delicious and they are helping many local people into work through their extensive training programme. Their new cafe is well worth a visit too.

I have long been a fan of The Dusty Knuckle. We used their delicious sourdough bread when I ran a local cafe, I have tried many of their very filling sandwiches at work events. Their bread is top class, their portions are generous and their sticky buns are to die for!

I’ve visited St Luke’s a couple of times for work events as it’s just round the corner from our offices. They have loads of rooms to hire and there’s always a buzzy vibe there. We used the Garden Room recently, which (as you might be able to guess) looks out on to a courtyard garden – a lovely space to get some fresh air to break up a workshop.
