The Nest Cafe
The Nest Weymouth  are seeking more volunteers to help increase our opening days in the Nest Café. We need a full team for Mondays and are building and strengthening teams for other days so that we can open Monday to Thursday every week. Could you wash up over the lunchtime, 11.00 to 1.30, or offer to serve on the counter or prepare easy snacks and meals in the kitchen? Perhaps you could be flexible to work across all areas? Other shift times are 9 to 12 or 12 to 3 supporting a manager. Alternate weeks are also a fantastic and worthwhile contribution to helping the community in this way.

If you are interested and willing to help please contact Neil Hardisty.
