Child friendly snack

Following recent village events where we were able to meet so many people with connections to Gawsworth, we have seen a healthy increase in footfall in the Hub shop and café.

A new range of child friendly snacks has been added to the café menu including milk shakes (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry). We have a highchair in the café and baby changing facilities within our accessible toilet area.

Janet’s home-made cakes are always popular. In addition to our regular range of freshly baked scones, chocolate cake and lemon drizzle, this month’s special was a gooseberry and lemon cake thanks to a kind donation of surplus gooseberries from a local resident!  Our outside seating area is available if you prefer to be outside, alternatively we have seating for up to 12 inside. We are always appreciative of donations of surplus home-grown products or maybe you could bake a cake or tray bake once a month for sale in the shop or café.

As our community shop becomes busier, our volunteers are working hard to adapt to increased demand. This includes looking at increased stock levels to meet your needs and extended opening hours. If you are able to offer a few hours volunteer support per month to help us extend our opening hours in the shop and café, please call into the hub and have a chat with Janet or Kathryn.

To help us, help you, did you know that you can pre-order your takeaway sandwiches, we can then prepare them in advance to save unnecessary waiting when you call in to collect. Call us on 01625 425428 with your order.

To welcome newcomers to our village, we offer a £5 gift voucher for use in the hub shop or café. If you know of any people moving into the village, please let us know in the Hub so that we can arrange to deliver their introductory voucher to them.
