Winter HAF programme

We have provided food and activities for young people in Whitchurch who rely on free school dinners 20-22 December 2022. We offered three days of art, drama and cakemaking fun and a hot meal and food bag to take home to cover two more meals. We are grateful to HAF Shropshire for organising the scheme and funding.

Chilli and ice cream!

We had another lunch here with some very happy customers. Who doesn’t enjoy an ice cream sundae? Especially when it looks like this.

We have had some lovely feedback about how safe and special Lisa and Toby make people feel when they come. Some of our customers are anxious about leaving their homes so it is a real treat for them to have lunch out.

Luncheon club update

Lunch went down a treat on Wednesday with some yummy pudding to cheer us up on a grey day. We love hearing the chat and having our cafe staff around and are looking forward to seeing them weekly from now on. Here are the menus for the next two weeks and bookings are already coming in so don’t miss out.

Luncheon club

Fish and chips were on the menu and we had a good turnout for the second of our Wednesday lunches. It was good to see people who have not been able to get out and who have been worrying about going to restaurants. We follow strict social distancing guidelines and are doing our best to provide a safe and enjoyable experience.

We are planning to go to weekly lunches from 7 October onwards and have some great menus coming up. Do call us to book and remember we need a £5 non-refundable deposit to cover our staff costs as we are bringing Lisa and Toby off furlough.
