This is the motley crew about to go up Scafell which Laurie and Joe did in under 4 hours. The group are running a little behind schedule but what does that matter when they fund is just shy or £14K, well over their target. Well done guys, keep going.

While Stuart is galavanting around the country, Phoebe will be serving up breakfasts from 10-1pm today. We will be closed tomorrow as we felt we all deserved a break.

while Phoebe has been doing a brilliant job head cheffing at the cafe the last couple of days, Stuart has been travelling. He just sent me this pic of Laurie, Joe and the rest of the team. It's all smiles now, lets hope that continues. I think this is them at their first mountain, Ben Nevis which they planned to start walking at 5pm. Good luck guys!

Phoebe will be head chef at the cafe for the next three days as Stuart will be away. Its the Three Peeks Challenge that our eldest daughter Laurie and her boyfriend Joe are taking on with a group of their family and friends. Stuart is one of the drivers ferrying the group to each mountain. We have raised lots of money at the cafe which will be going into the groups pot for Christies in Manchester which is one of Europes experimental cancer medicine centres, and an international leader in research and development. I will keep you posted over the weekend with news of the groups achievements.

If you intend to be out and about on your bikes this weekend call into the cafe for a hearty breakfast before, after or during your ride.

Back by popular demand, Millionaires Shortbread. Phoebe, you've done a great job, this one didn't last long after its photo debut.

What a gorgeous evening, fingers crossed for good weather tomorrow. We caught this bird fishing tonight, is it a heron? Anyway, just a reminder that we are closed tomorrow but back as usual on Tuesday.

Phoebe has finished her apprenticeship with us and officially left the cafe on Saturday to go on to bigger and better things. We want to wish her all the best in her new job and say what a pleasure it was to work with her. Good luck Phoebe, we will miss you but I expect we will still see you around, LOL.
