Easter Fun

Power Station - An amazing day was had at the Community Cafe for our Easter day. Packed to the door and many standing waiting for a table. We would just like to say a great big thank you to all the mums and dads who came along with the children. Apologies for the wait but we thank you for your custom, your patience and for bearing with us. Apologies to the people who couldn’t wait for a table, please come along next week and we will make sure you get one. What can we say about the fabulous assistants, Jacqueline our fantastic baker who was in the Power Station at 8 a.m. to make sure all those gorgeous cakes and scones were ready for opening time and to Jane who was glued to the kitchen cooking and serving up the hot meals every week and never gets flustered. We are all proud of you both ladies. A big thank you to Margaret and Mandy who came for lunch and ended up takings orders and washing dishes. Thank you both, you were a blessing today. We had a drawing competition to keep the kids entertained and the winner was Tilly from England who is on holiday at her gran’s. Her prize was a giant chocolate bunny. A brilliant day and we hope we will see some more new faces over the coming weeks. We will have a new menu starting in May so look out for that.
