Coffee Shop crew in the Glass House

21 Feb

The smiles say it all from the 12 ladies from the Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust Team displaying their certificates having successfully completed Food Safety Level Two courses.

The ladies are to be found doing regular shifts at the Trust’s Glass House Coffee Shop located at the Fleets to Flying Boats Centre. The Centre and Coffee Shop opened in July in the historic Royal Dockyard and have quickly become exciting additions in the town’s heritage trail.

Joining the Coffee Shop team was the Chairman of the Sunderland Trust, William McNamara, who congratulated them all on making such a success of the new venture.

The Coffee Shop is mainly run by volunteers with staff support when required. Over the winter months it is open Tuesdays to Fridays inclusive, 10 am to 4 pm.

Training sessions for the Food Safety certificates were run by Sara Rhys-Owens of Sara Safety Solutions of Pembroke Dock.

The photograph was taken at the Prince’s Trust’s Quarterdeck Restaurant at Pembroke Dock where over 50 of the Sunderland Trust Team – volunteers, friends, trustees and staff – gathered for an excellent Christmas lunch. Over 70 volunteers are involved with the Sunderland Trust’s heritage initiatives at the Fleets to Flying Boats Centre and the Flying Boat Workshop.

Anyone interested in joining the Sunderland Trust’s volunteer team is asked to contact Kylene Rafferty, Volunteer Training and Development Officer, whose post is supported under the WCVA’s Volunteering in Wales Fund and funded by the Welsh Government. Tel. 01646 684220.
