Cafe re-opening

Cafe re-opening

Despite the very uncertain future of the Riverside Shopping Centre, it was decided to give the cafe a facelift and a new lease of life while the centre remains open.

A number of the client-volunteers were involved in the redecoration project, which involved a range of skill-areas including carpentry, plastering, painting, wallpapering and basic electrical installations.

A number of the clients now work in the cafe which sells barista-made coffees and other hot drinks, light meals, cakes and a variety of home-produced products.

Several new clients have recently earned their Basic Food Hygiene certificates, allowing them to work in the food preparation areas.
