Caught under the mistletoe are (left to right) Catherine, Jenny, Rob and Sarah, all of whom dedicate their time on a Tuesday morning. Rob and Sarah Beebee start at 7am, baking bread and croissants, sorting out the day’s newspapers, the fresh milk and the veg. Customers roll in from 7.30. At 9am there’s a change of guard: Catherine and Jenny take over the till, unpacking deliveries and serving with a smile. “Working here puts you in the Christmas spirit!” says Catherine. We’d like to say a spirited thank you to all our volunteers: the ones in the green aprons and the many who work behind the scenes: cleaning, baking, keeping us online and fixing things. We need you and we love you all! Merry Christmas!
