Edupreneur-School Diners

This means so much to me, I grew up in the social care system of the 1980’s, was removed from more than one school too. I have a real passion for motivating our youth!!

The best way I could find to teach life skills and motivate them was by creating a restaurant with them, it teaches so many life skills that are used every day, whether you work in a kitchen or not!!

These skills include teamwork, time keeping, resilience, working under pressure, delivering on time, people skills, money handling, dealing with the public and so much more.

To find out more and how we can bring this to your school, email me schooldiners@realmarklloyd.com

Hopwood & Locke

There are so many gadgets, knives, pots and pans out there I thought I would get hold of the best, in my opinion, put them all on here and try to get you great deals on them too.

Check out the store for the best deals and my personal favourites. More and more items will be on here as I find them and test them out.

Wild Food and Foraging

I have been called a Wild Food expert, I suppose 30 years of experience makes me that. I teach sessions on wild food, foraging, how to identify it and cook with it. These sessions are equally good for private interested individuals or team building days.
