One fun weekend


This weekend we hung out around Brum with some of our favourite people. A staycation of sort. We ate a feast, toured Digbeth (made bread and movies at the Flatpack Festival) and paraded with a donkey through Walmley to kick-off the Easter celebrations. We even entered a quiz and didn't loose.

Rosa Cookery School


Oh Boy do we love our job! 
We had the immense pleasure of a sneak preview taster day at the brand-new Rosa Cookery School, (in Sutton Coldfield, just down the road from us). We snapped away while Adele guided her pupils through baking bread and making pasta. 

And we got to taste-test all of it.


We've got to mention (because we think its a crazy good deal) Rosa Cookery School are putting on special Italian Christmas Cookery Evening- if you're local check it out. It's a bargain at just £20, you'll get to make some, try some and take some home. More info & bookings here.

Erdington Foodbank Launch


Yesterday was the official launch of our Erdington Foodbank, we held a little gathering of our supporters, partners and volunteers. But the most important thing happened before the notorieties arrived. We gave out food for nearly 30 people, to help them through the next week. You can see a few photos of of the real business of foodbank below. 

And if you'd like to make a contribution, find our how HERE.  


What really goes on at Foodbank? 
Volunteers receive food donations, scan and store them. They greet people attending with a hot drink and slice of home made cake, then ask about food preferences and then prepare a bag with a weeks worth of food for their household. They add in treats and toiletries. And they offer a listening ear.

Excited to be able to share these photos we took at a christening a little while back. The twins got christened on their first birthday and threw a big party for friends and family. Double the cuteness, double the fun. And a little shout out to Alexa, the boys' very stylish big sister.

Re-Awakening Lea Village


We decided to combine our [DEVELOP] meet up with Re-Awakening Lea Village, an event run by a really cool charity called Reel Access who help kids make videos. The idea was to re-awaken some the community spirit in a small area of east Birmingham called Lea Village through traditional amusements like Morris dancing and Punch & Judy shows. Here's a little flavour of the project. We met up with a few of our friends and hung out in the sunshine. Oh... and took a few pictures (Credit to Nicoleta  who contributed some of these beauties).

May's [DEVELOP] challenge will be up tomorrow (in time for the weekend!), but before that we'd like to announce our first meet up! #superexcited

25th May from 3.30 pm

We're going to be meeting in Birmingham city centre for some group photo challenges. We can offer each other loads of tips and tricks. We can grab a bite to eat and get to see each others faces. If you're interested in coming drop us an email or Facebook inbox message and we'll send you the details.

Most of our participants are Birmingham based, but if you fancy travelling in to meet up pop us a note and we can help you with directions and suggest somewhere to stay. If its too far why not give us a shout, maybe next time we can plan something nearer to you!

Can't wait to meet you!

Night Photography Session


Last week we took this lovely lady out to take some night photos- she dubbed it a Master Class, but we wouldn't like to be so presumptuous. It had rained and it was dark (but not too cold) so everything was shiny and the Christmas lights were out in force. We snapped away, tried out some new things on Indy's camera. She got the best shot of the night, but we weren't too jealous because she bought us hot chocolate to warm back up.
