The Ark Cafe has closed -
Announcement August 2020
As probably some of you are aware, we have decided to close the Ark Cafe. We have been considering over the last few months how we would operate in the Ark as and when it reopened. We have decided after due consideration that it would not be practical with the social distancing involved and it is not possible to operate in the small kitchen in the preparation of lunches with the number of volunteers required. Also over the past few months the number of clients taking lunch has declined.
We started the Cafe in 2005 and we have had a wonderful fifteen years. We have raised a lot of money for the Ark and the Church and have enjoyed a wonderful fellowship with all our clients and volunteers over the years.
We would like to thank all our volunteers past and present over the last fifteen years who have given of their time to make it all such a success. Thanks also go to Ian in the Ark for all his help and latterly to Clayton Fern for the provision of all the meat for our meals.
Finally a big thank you to all our clients who have come to lunch every Thursday so faithfully over the years. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you all.
