An update from us, on whats going on during the coronavirus crisis.
As everyone is well aware, we’re currently in extremely unprecedented times due to the coronavirus. At the moment, we’re currently closed, until told otherwise by the government. Even then, we expect not to be able to operate as a fully-functioning cafe for a while, and will probably just operate as a takeaway. Obviously this is unknown at the moment, but this is something that can be expected.
Weeks prior to lockdown, we were trying to operate as normal as possible. We encourage customers to wash their hands more, with specific ‘hand wash technique’ signs placed in the toilet. Staff hygiene had been reinforced as well as standard hygiene practises throughout the establishment.
On the Friday evening that the government announced cafe’s were to close, we changed the whole concept of the cafe to a complete takeaway, with strict social distancing rules in force. This was due to having fresh supplies in to sell, and as well we wanted to help provide the community with a service. For the first time ever, we sold our homemade bread to take away, which was really popular. We had plenty of plans in place in what else we could do help support the community. This included a home delivery service for anyone self isolating.
After a successful weekend, and with Cumbria Police declaring the Lake District closed, we took the unfortunate decision to close the indefinite future.
At the moment, we’re all enjoying time off in the safest way possible. At the end of the day, we’re living in the nicest place in the country! We’re all looking forward to getting back but only when the time is right.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
