On this week’s show I find out about Rock Paper Scissors, a crafterie and a cafe which has opened recently in Lincoln. Also on the show is an interview with celebrity chef James Martin, who chats about his latest television show as well as his thoughts on the recent UK meat scandal.

The shop actually sells pieces of art and design as well as teaching people new crafts. Alongside all this they are also a cafe serving up slices of home made cake and fresh tea.

The shop manager, Elizabeth Dimmock, and the shop manager, Michelle Forrest Beckett, have returned to Lincoln after originally coming here to study at the University of Lincoln. They are glad to be back with their new venture and are excited about the possibilities when it comes to combining cakes and crafts.
