Virtual Fun

Cook Along

If you have Zoom or Skype why not host a virtual cook along. Create a recipe, ensure your friends have the ingredients in advance and then you take the lead cooking the recipe whilst your friends join in, in their kitchens, you can then all enjoy the recipe that you’ve made together (virtually).

Book Club

Choose a set book each week which you can download on the web or use audio books, then meet with your friends each week to chat about plot twists.


Everyone is doing quizzes at the moment, Zoom and Skype allows you to share your screen where you can set up a very organised looking presentation on Powerpoint. Find some questions on the internet and get creative on Powerpoint. If you would like some pre-made quiz slides and answers, please contact and we can share them with you.
