Sarah Jones, Team Manager at The Appleby Hub, Wins 2017 Employee of the Year Award - Healthy Living Promoter
The Appleby Hub Community Cafe opened its doors to the public for the very first time in November last year. A year previously Oaklea had taken on the running of the building and then was hit by Storm Desmond.
Sarah said, “It was extremely difficult getting everything in place in time. I needed to ensure we met all Environmental Health demands as well as going out to advert for the right team.”
Since its opening the cafe has welcomed many people all wanting to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this special building. The carefully designed menu went down a treat! Featuring the ever popular all day breakfast; the gorgeous Hub salad bowl; wholesome and warming soups and homemade cakes and scones.
The long awaited cafe offers a warm and inviting space, in amongst the second hand book shop run by Appleby Rotary. The cafe is the ideal place for an hour or two away from it all, with family friendly reading areas in bright and cheerful surroundings.
The cafe cook Patrizia Scarpa has been working hard to get the menu just right,
“it was important to us to design a menu that made the most of lots of local produce, as well as having something to tempt everyone.”
The Hub café is good for the soul as well as the stomach!
