"In 2007 I had a limited company Maingredient Ltd. with a partner – a food specific support service – developing people’s business ideas into practice. The Alchemy Fund we were awarded enabled us to set this up and vie for funding through ESF and LSC to deliver a project called Mobile Food School. Based in Radford, the practical part delivered a Crepe and Juice Bar on Sneinton Market where participants injected their ideas and learned how to run a food stall."

"I’m currently doing development work for Sneinton Alchemy which includes consultation with residents to find out local people’s thoughts on a new kind of space for Sneinton. I’m also running a breakfast club on Sundays at the local pub and recently did some film crew catering from the same premises. Now I’m looking at having a finger in less pies and concentrate on one area."
