Description

Bonny Café is a community café, run by volunteers at Bonnymuir Green Community Centre. We serve drinks, hot food and baked goods from 10.30 -1.30, takeaway and indoor table service. The café has recently increased its opening hours and is now running Friday to Sunday, so we are hoping to find new volunteers to support these extended opening times.

There are various roles within the café:
• Kitchen duties - cooking hot food, making up bacon/sausage rolls, washing up, loading dishwasher
• Front of house – taking orders and payments, serving, clearing tables, making teas/coffees
• Monitoring visitor numbers, meeting and greeting

You will be given a warm welcome and all the help and support you need to learn the ropes. Bonnymuir Green is a fantastic place to be involved with and has really developed and grown since it opened to the public three years ago. There is no set commitment – we appreciate any time that you have to give!

For further information please contact Liz Brown, Bonnymuir Green Community Trust Centre Coordinator at email: centrecoordinator.bgct@gmail.com or tel.: 07799 206258.

Training details: Excellent support and relevant training is provided. All café volunteers complete a new volunteer details form and are asked to read through the Level 2 Food Safety Manual before starting. They are invited in for a “shadow” shift, where they can learn how the café operates and meet some of the other volunteers. Once they have completed a few trial shifts, they can be added to our WhatsApp group chats and our Doodle poll, where we communicate about baking/availability.
