Our Trustees also visited the upgraded tiny, but perfectly formed new ‘training’ kitchen room in Portslade. Under the leadership of John and Fresh Start Sussex, this community hub will be used for community gatherings and events. This includes training the more silver haired among us to get onto the web so that important sites like EBay, Facebook, BBC sports etc can be used! Additionally more valid training on legal forms, online banking, Skype etc will also be taught. It’s a delightful, laid back setting and Homity were very pleased to fund these changes to benefit locals. John also runs more formal cafe training for youngsters looking to get a foot in the catering trade – here’s some Barista instruction in action! Great tea, cakes and ice cream are available too!
We have recently funded a couple of ‘pop up’ gazebos to allow John “Mr Portslade’ to run events outside the cafe and further afield. Here’s the first one, looks like it just needs a cuppa and some cake (both available!).
