Words by Café Manager Di Rayner
Café 66 is a community cafe held three days a week in 1st Kesgrave Scout Hall. It provides a safe environment in which our staff can flourish and maximise their potential. All aspects of running a cafe are taught including setting up the venue, waiting on tables, cooking with help from staff, washing up and drying, using the till, and cleaning up and tidying the hall at the end of the session.
We run a monthly lunch club offering a two course home cooked meal for £5. This has proved very popular and we always have a full house.
We have just won the Suffolk Stars Team of the Year award. This award was set up by Mr and Mrs Parker from Parker Communications. It is a lovely evening to celebrate the best that Suffolk has to offer. Nominations are sent in and a panel of judges decide on the final three for each category
We were nominated for the work we do with adults with disabilities in teaching them skills which can help them for when they consider independent living. The team was thrilled and very proud to receive this award
We pride ourselves on being a friendly place for staff and customers alike. We are open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10.30am until 2pm and are starting up a new venture in Chantry on Mondays. We have recently received a 5 Star Food Hygiene Award.
Café 66 is a non-profit organisation which is run by two paid staff and volunteers.
