September Newsletter



I would like to welcome Ben a new volunteer he will be here every Monday, please make him feel welcome.

Salads will be ending on Friday 27th September so soup will be back on  the menu with jacket potatoes and omelettes as alternatives for the autumn/winter. Don’t forget we have Bacon Rolls for sale for £1 between 9am-11am. If you require us to make a birthday cake for you the kitchen will need a weeks’ notice.

Please chat with Deborah & Nikki if there is anything you are unable to eat and they will do their best to find an alternative for you. Please make sure you order the correct meal when you arrive as Deborah and Nikki will be unable to change this when they are serving lunch, also when you phone & order a lunch please can you specify what lunch you require if it is the one on the menu or the alternative to save any confusion.  Remember lunch must be booked by 11.00am.  We also have a nice range of homemade cakes, biscuits, plus sweets and chocolate treats. Please note only Day Centre Drinks can be consumed here, we cannot have people bringing in their own drinks. If there is a drink (non-alcoholic) that you would like to see on the servery please let us know, please do not bring in drinks and ask us to keep behind the Servery, we do have a nice range of cold drinks, hot drinks (Tea, Coffee, Cappuchinos,Horlicks, Bovril,Hot Chocolate and cartons of juice and water. We have put survey forms on all tables, please fill them in and place in plastic sleeve by the white board in the dining room, we cannot improve if we don’t have your comments.  PLEASE NOTE THE SERVERY WILL BE CLOSED 12-1PM EVERY DAY. We will NOT be storing any items in the fridge or freezer that have been purchased from the shops as we have had a number of issues that have arisen so please be mindful of this when purchasing your goods.

Please also be mindful on how many shopping bags you take home on the bus as we are limited for space!

We are now selling a variety of items on our ‘Sales Trolley’, wrapping paper, sellotape, bingo dabbers, age birthday cards, tissues, deodorants, combs etc., please let us know if you would like to be able to purchase any other items from here and we will do our best to provide them at a very reasonable price.
