Lochdonhead Community Cafe

On Monday the 7th of October, we held our second Community Café at our school. It was a huge success and many members of our community came to visit us. We sold lots of our handmade crafts including books, bookmarks, calendars and Christmas cards. The parents generously provided an abundance of cakes and biscuits to accompany the tea and coffee and it was lovely to catch up with the people who have supported us on our journey to becoming a successful business. Hopefully it will be just as busy next time when we will be holding our first community bingo game!
