We are so excited to be taking on the lease of an old Barclays Bank branch in Ditton! We are going to transform its interior (and exterior!!) and make it into a cafe and shop. Our older students from Five Acre Wood and our young learners from Grow 19 will benefit from working in it! Gaining essential life and employment skills, these students will prepare, serve, clear, clean, bake, deal with money, stock taking and ordering…. The cafe will also be an ideal location to sell produce from our allotments and gardens.

With a scheduled opening date in November 2021, there is much to be done! All hands on deck – we need to build and decorate and shop and fundraise (not necessarily in that order!!)….

Still pretty much a bank……watch this space!!!!
