Our Community Cafe is usually a hub for activities, but due to the coronavirus, we had no choice but to limit the service to takeaway only.
The takeaway has worked quite well but, as the cold, wet weather sets in, and footfall drops, we need a way to ensure our much-loved cafe can continue to run.
With that, we have decided that we need to open up the connecting sports hall to offer table service. That way we can bring people in from the cold and help secure the future of the cafe.
However, due to the new government restrictions for restaurants and cafes, regarding table service, this is something Alen, our Cafe Manager, will not be able to do alone.
As a registered charity, we rely on the support of our volunteers and, as we move into phase two of reopening the cafe, we now need some dedicated volunteers to help us make this happen.
Community Cafe Volunteer Role
We are looking for a small team of two people who are enthusiastic, friendly individuals with great people skills who isn't afraid to interact with customers.
Each individual volunteering on one of the following days.
- Thursday - 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
- Friday - 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
4 hours per day.
Tasks will include:
- Directing customers to tables.
- Taking customers orders.
- Process customer payments using a contactless card reader.
- Table waiting.
You don’t need any previous experience as training will be given.
Successful applications will be required to have enhanced DBS checks as part of our safeguarding measures.
They will also have to attend a Coronavirus Toolbox Talk with the Cafe Manager to ensure COVID compliance.
Why volunteer at the Community Cafe?
As well as making new friends and learning new skills, you’ll be supporting your local community, by helping us to deliver services that otherwise we would be unable to offer.
Join our fantastic Community Cafe and help us secure the future.
We take pride in the services we offer and, all Community Association buildings are COVID Secure.
What this means is that we have assessed the COVID-19 risk and put measures in place to help minimise the risk to our staff, volunteers, and visitors.
All our Community Cafe volunteers will be supplied with the appropriate PPE to help protect them in their role.
