Open – Close – Open and then Close!!
What a blow to have to close our Rainbow café – open 6 days a week in the Town centre – it has been serving the local town community since 1977!!!
We made the decision to open the Rainbow café in July 20 as we felt the elderly people who were still going out needed a safe welcoming place where they could go.
Many have said this has made such a difference and we have been on hand to help elderly people with problems such as form – filling and letters etc which were worrying them. Some of which turned out to be hoaxes!
We had to cut our seating capacity by half and strictly follow all the guidelines buying screens, automatic sanitisers and disposable crockery and worked with our volunteers to develop safe working practices.
The Café was closed again in November we look forward to opening as soon as possible.
