BREAKFAST is the most important meal of the day and some experts say that having one can help to stop over eating.

It provides the energy needed to kick start the body for the hours ahead and this is a message that has been taken on board in Church Stretton where a hearty breakfast is on offer at the Mayfair Community Centre on Saturday mornings.

The traditional cooking makes use of local produce where this is practicable. Volunteers do the cooking and as it is a Saturday serving goes on well in to the morning for those that want a lie in before they eat their breakfast.
