Published: 29 August 2023  

Our community shop is about more than just food. This month we have two health and wellbeing experts visiting The Market Place, providing advice and guidance. Plus, a tasty term-time tea-time recipe for you to try out!  

Speak with Smokefree Liverpool 

If you’re thinking about cutting down or quitting smoking and you would appreciate support from a Stop Smoking Advisor, pop along to The Market Place on Tuesdays and speak with Smokefree Liverpool. 

From Tuesday 5 September, the team will be based in our community shop weekly between 10am and 1pm. If you’d like to cut down on how much you smoke or quit altogether, the team are on hand to provide friendly, professional support and guidance through your quit attempt. 

Wellbeing support from The Life Rooms 

If you’re struggling with your mental health, The Life Rooms will be visiting us every Wednesday from 6 September onwards. They’re a wellbeing organisation, that offers person-centric support in a one-on-one setting. If you’re looking for a safe space to talk about your mental health and any issues you may be facing, come along to The Market Place between 10am and 12pm every Wednesday to find out how the team can help you or a member of your household.  

Back to school pizza pasta bake! 

The new school term is nearly upon us and if you’re starting to think about after school eats, we have an easy, tasty recipe for you to try! With just a handful of ingredients needed to rustle this one-pot dish together, pizza pasta bake is bound to be a hit with the whole family! Check out the recipe below.  


  • 350g pasta 
  • 2 x tins of chopped tomatoes 
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1/2 tsp pepper 
  • 2 tsp oregano 
  • 500ml stock 
  • 100g grated cheese 


  1. To make the tomato sauce, empty both tins of chopped tomatoes in a bowl and add a pinch of salt, pepper, garlic powder and oregano. Mix well 
  2. Place the uncooked pasta into an ovenproof dish then pour over the tomato sauce and spread over the pasta, using the back of a spoon or spatula 
  3. Next, pour the stock over pasta and sauce 
  4. Place the dish in the oven 180°c for 15 minutes. After the allotted time, remove and stir 
  5. Place dish back in the oven for another 15 minutes 
  6. Give the pasta another stir and sprinkle on the cheese, plus any extra toppings you would like to add (pepperoni, for example) 
  7. Pop the dish back into the oven for a final 10 minutes
