Brue Valley’s Coffee morning shakes Costa Coffee !!


News of Costa Coffee’s sale of its 3821 shops to Coca-Cola and the associated increase of 16.3% in its parent’s company share price to £46.75 prompted the writer to investigate another rising coffee shop star. Yes, it was Brue Valley’s coffee morning at Castle Cary’s Market House yesterday. The place was buzzing. Colin J and Liz gave the initial impression of being meeters and greeters but their true purpose of seamlessly relieving customers of pound coins in exchange for raffle tickets was soon apparent. Angela and Sally efficiently dispensed the famous Bue Valley Latte as well as serving tempting and delicious cakes, (the Andrew Davies flapjack was particularly good). Jenia and Simeon were ever present in the media department where interesting and diverse CD’s, DVD’s and books were available. Our furniture supremo Colin D was in good form attempting to sell a multicoloured wine rack and other items to the numerous attendees. Synchronising the event was our ever-present President. The result of all this energy was a profit of circa £184. Great work – thanks are due to everyone mentioned plus (a) anyone who I might have missed and, (b) Mike S who organised the morning but was laid low with a nasty bug. Apologies for the pictures which have nothing to do with the reported event …….! RW
