This might be a bit of post-50 reflecting, or losing my Mum, or the pandemic, or a weird mish-mash of all three… but I’ve been doing some serious soul-searching lately.
I love the business & team that is VG, the friends made along the way, and the totally brilliant support from our customers. But hospitality has its trade-offs for those who work in it - for me it’s the near constant weekend working and the knock-on effect on the time available to spend with my family.
So after much mulling (my middle name could be Eeyore) I’ve decided to alter our core Summer/early Autumn opening hours which will be Monday -Saturday 9-3.45 inclusive (closed Sundays). I expect this to run up until the end of October, and I’ll then review our Winter opening times. These new hours will come into effect from Monday 11th July.
As a family business, we always strive to be better and do the very best job we can, so I’m really hopeful this will give us more balance, and allow us to keep enjoying all that is VG.
Thank you for reading, I can’t wait to see all of your lovely faces in the cafe soon.
