November & December 2019
We attended two Christmas fayre's before Christmas with Coffee Logs. A Sustainable Christmas at The Loyd Lindsay Rooms & Christmas at The Extraordinary Hare.
We attended our first eco event, organised by The Hive at The Loyd Lindsay Rooms in Ardington. It was a huge success and we loved every second. We spoke to so many people who weren't aware of Coffee Logs and their crudentials. We sold a huge amount and look forward to those happy customers returning and placing further orders. We had a few lovely fire crate gifts as well that were hugely popular as gifts for men. We sold out of our eco fire lighters! We met lots of other stall holders with a great range of local or home made products. We can't wait for the next event on Friday 15th November - A Sustainable Christmas - The Loyd Lindsay Rooms, Ardington, OX12 8PS
We have recruited 3 part time summer staff to help us provide excellent customer service especially when our lovely garden is busy. We have Deanna, Emilie & Milly and they are doing a great job learning everything they need to.
We are having central heating fitted in the shop. Since our cafe has extended into the shop these tables have become very popular and deserve some warmth for our customers to enjoy. The installation has started and is due to finish shortly and we are trying to keep inconvenience for our customers to a minimum. It's easy to guess which is going to be the new favourite warm winter spot.
Halloween - 31st October
The tearooms and shop looked great decorated for Halloween and half term and we had a very busy week. On the 31st we got into character as well.
Oktoberfest - 29th September
We had a great Oktoberfest evening with customers and staff alike enjoying themselves and the food. The biggest compliment we received was 'I feel like I'm in Germany' and we can't ask for more than that. Great fresh food, variety of German beers and schnapps, live band, party games and more. Here are a few photo's from the evening.
Wantage Town FC Cake stall - September 2018
We had a great day at Wantage Town, in the sunshine selling our delicious home made cakes. Customer's were spoilt for choice and struggled to decide what to choose. Many returned throughout the day. Our new banner was on display, which looked great and we're looking forward to returning next year.
