Making A Difference
Furthering our cause, to create a closer, more caring and cohesive community, is the most important goal of our group. We seek to support, empower, and provide high quality resources to our local community. Our success isn’t measured in terms of wealth or profit margin, but by the value we provide to those we serve.

Bath Bomb Workshop
Friday 17 March
Just a few of the bath bombs created tonight using natural ingredients and imagination under the guidance of the multi talented Jules. They need to set before being freed from the moulds
A note from Jules, our host -
Thank you for having me! I had a fabulous time, and met such lovely people. Good luck unmoulding those bombs (and if all else fails...)
Super Spring Recipes
Saturday 18 March
It was excellent. The children played outside between dishes whilst the adults cleared up. Weather could not have been better. A super spring day allowing us to do spring related recipes! Grateful to Matthew for letting us rent the hall as it was the perfect location.
Looking forward to the next one on 1st April. BB.
Litter Walk, Adlingfleet
Saturday 25 March
Today's efforts litter picking on Hoggard Lane, Adlingfleet. 12 bags of rubbish, 4 tyres, various other items and a window!. All picked by IEM'S two Bridgets and 'Lee from Adlingfleet'. Get well wishes to the ever reliable Lynne & Dave who unfortunately couldn't make it.
It was rather blustery but we finished just before the downpour. A good soak with home made bath bombs will get rid of any aches . BE.
South African Cuisine Demonstration
Saturday 22 April
Saturday evening saw us welcome Tony Jacobs our chef to demonstrate the preparation of some classic South African dishes. We received excellent instruction and a tasting of Bobotie,
"one I made earlier". The evening was rounded off with a portion of Bobotie, prepared on the night, together with recipe cards and ingredients to take home.- Enjoyed by all!
What a lovely few hours we've had with Tony, the South African chef, learning how to make Bobotie followed by South African crumpets. All delicious and very social evening. Looking forward to the next one in June - Cape Malay chicken curry with poppy seed flatbread followed by Melktert. AS.
Mud Kitchen - Reedness Primary School
Monday 24 April
Having been approached by the school to see if IEM could help with the supply of a new mud kitchen, we said, yes! Keith, our carpenter agreed to design and build it. Kennings quickly supplied the wood and together with a few accessories, hey presto! Keith has done us and the school proud. Delivered to the school on Monday it has caused quite a stir (or two!). A big thank you to Keith for making it and to Richard and his team at Eastwood Groundworks for its transport and delivery to the school.
A massive thank you to the Incredible Edible Marshland group for the new EYFS mud kitchen!!!!! The children are loving it and spent most the day playing there yesterday!!
We do appreciate the support from the community! RPS.
Copper Wire Workshop
Tuesday 25 April
Lots of lovely copper hares created tonight at Reedness by a fabulous group. Thank you @iemland for inviting me. I'll look forward to returning later in the year for the willow workshops.
Twigs & Sprigs
Just back from a very absorbing workshop creating characterful hares from copper wire. Guided by Wendy from Twigs and Sprigs we had a lovely evening with our own individual hare to take home at the end, what's not to like 😊
4 & 25 February
An absorbing workshop. After some initial guidance from Lee we all managed to make a textured slab-built piece and throw our first pot on a wheel ready for bisque firing.
We will return on February 25th to decorate and glaze our pots!
Friday 10 February
A great first quilting class where we were presented with lots of ideas for completing our project. It's not too late to join in but it would be helpful if you have your own sewing machine as only a limited number are available to borrow. A variety of fabrics are available to use.
Please book early to be sure of your place.
Friday 17 February
Quilting week two - very absorbing......and addictive. Sara, our tutor, has a practical approach which is both achievable and effective, building skills week on week.
The workshop returns to Garthorpe village hall next week.
Joint Litter Picks
Saturday 18 February
Saturday 1 April
On February 18th 2023 Incredible Edible Marshland joined forces with the Clean Goole Campaign Group to do a combined litter pick. We chose the grass banking area and road verge between Old Goole and Swinefleet, starting at the Old Goole end, which seems to accumulate discarded rubbish on a regular basis. The weather was kind to us, Storm Otto having passed us by, and we had a good turn out of 13 people representing both groups. We collected a total of 33 bags of litter and some larger items in the time we had, which has certainly made a difference, however it was not 'mission accomplished' as we didn't reach Swinefleet.
To complete our mission we are holding another ‘pick’ on Saturday 1 April, 9.30-12 noon where we will start at Swinefleet and work our way towards Old Goole so that all of that area will have been cleaned up.
To celebrate the first collaboration between IEM & CGC and as a thank you to the pickers, IEM arranged for light refreshments at Old Goole Social Club, where we were very well looked after.
Light refreshments will again be provided by IEM at the social club at the conclusion of the ‘pick’. Meet on the riverbank at Swinefleet opposite Quay Lane where parking is available.
It would be great to have some local support from Old Goole again and from Swinefleet….
Will you be there next time??
Crochet Basket Workshop
Friday 10 March
Our latest workshop - A great success - very well attended and enjoyed by all .
Here are some of the comments received by way of feedback -
Thank you ladies for tonight. Very well done Claire and thank you for being so patient!! Loved it..... certainly recommend these classes, it was brilliant. Helen Byard
A highly successful evening with a lovely group of people. Thanks Claire for being a super tutor. Once again, there are so many talented people in the Marshlands Bridget Bramley
Joint Litter Pick 2
We did it! Just finished the second litter pick to complete the area between Old Goole and Swinefleet. A fabulous joint effort by Incredible Edible Marshland and
DN14 Litter Pickers (Clean Goole Campaign Group) with Dream Heritage. Today's turnout of 14 people collected 27 bags of rubbish, a pallet and a discarded bucket.
We retired to Old Goole Social Club for well earned refreshments afterwards where we were very well looked after. A huge thank you to everyone involved on both sessions.
