WHAT TO EXPECT

Guidelines from 20th July 2021.

Firstly, we’d like to thank you all for your ongoing support and patience over the past 16 months of lockdowns and ever changing restrictions; we know it’s been a confusing and testing time for both our customers and staff and we’re so grateful for your continued custom and kindness.
 

We’re so happy that the legal restrictions surrounding Covid have been lifted. However we are also mindful that not everyone will be entirely comfortable with such a sudden leap back into ‘normal life’.

As a business we have a duty of care towards both our customers and staff to keep everyone as safe and at ease so plan the following:

 

Our staff will continue to wear face coverings for the time being 


We will encourage but not insist on the wearing of masks when you are inside the café


We will not take contact details, but encourage customers to check in and out using the NHS Track & Trace app

Our current and thorough cleaning regime will continue and hand sanitising points will remain around the site


Staff will continue to undertake regular lateral flow tests at home


Although you may notice a few more tables in the café, we will not be returning to our full seating capacity inside just yet


Table service will remain indefinitely. We hope this will minimize queuing and crowding inside the café & promote a better experience for all.
 

As we move towards what we’re sure will be a very busy summer for the staff here at Old Hall, we ask for your continued patience and understanding and look forward to seeing you all soon,

 

No Cash payments taken. Card only please.

5000 MILES FOR JANET

Some of you may not know but at the beginning of lockdown, my Mother-in-Law, Janet, sadly passed away. She had developed a “one in a million” illness, a rare, random, aggressive degenerative disease that took her from us within the space of a month, she died on 27th March 2020. Janet’s time in hospital was difficult due to Covid 19 and all that entailed. Janet loved our family cafe, she was often in the kitchen, helping with the washing up and keeping us all on our toes with her quick wit and humour! She loved seeing all the customers and would often be found chatting away to everyone, maybe you will have been accosted by her as she bustled around, despite her being 78 years young!? Anyway, in her memory and to mark what we hope will be the last month before we re-open the cafe (open for takeaways from 4th July!) we have embarked on a challenge to raise funds for 2 charities close to our hearts. A breast cancer one and St Elizabeth Hospice who support the Beccles Hospital palliative care unit. Please have a read of our pages and if you feel able to donate, even just a little, please do so, it would mean a great deal to the whole café team and to our family. Coronavirus has caused many fund raising activities to be cancelled or postponed but the problems that these charities are helping to combat are still happening every day. Thank you for reading this and look forward to seeing you all in person very soon... not long now!
