The CASBar, our second year cafe bar operation is open once more. This gives our 2nd year students the chance to study a more informal style of service which requires a different service approach, and shows them how pricing and volume of sales can have a real impact on a small business. Whether you would like to ‘grab a tasty cake and a cuppa to go’ a full three course meal, or something inbetween, the choice is yours.
The CASBar will be open every Wednesday Thursday and Friday throughout this semester (except the Easter break) 08:30-14:30. Greynore 2.
Last Friday’s Macmillan event was a great success, we would like to thank all those who supported us, especially our regular and new customers, staff, students, family and friends. With your continued support we have to date raised £320.54 for Macmillan, however, the donations are still coming in! Many thanks everyone.
The CAS recently held an event to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. On offer in the CASBar were a vast array of tasty cakes, shortbreads and scones to go with our teas and coffees, all served with a smile by some of our very able and willing students.
We produced light lunches for 40 customers, ploughmans, quiches, crumbles and pies were eaten and enjoyed all in the name of a good cause. Much of the produce from our raised beds was turned into delicious jams, jellies, chutneys and relishes during the summer, which were available to buy, together with some fresh CAS grown, fruit and vegetables.The homegrown Cucameloms (aka mouse mellons) were an endless source of conversation- tasting like a cross between an cucumber and lime.
