The  Youth Club used the skills they’ve been perfecting in Cooking Club to cook a Caribbean meal for the older Social Club members. Jerk chicken, pepper fish, jollof rice, fried plantain, brown stew chicken, mac ‘n’ cheese and sweet potato mash were just some of the culinary delights! There was also Djembe drum making, a Black Who’s Who and a look at the Black British Timeline.
