Wood B Good St Colms Cards & Cafe Extends Opening Times

It is one of the pleasures of a Friday  to visit the Wood B Good  St Colms Cards and Cafe.  Every Friday from 10 am to 2pm the staff, volunteers and students of St Colms prepare  and serve cakes, scones, soups, filled rolls and a main.

Daniel Laud, Lecturer in Hospitality at Orkney College UHI, has been teaching the students and staff food preparation and how to serve it to customers. Having been visiting the cafe now for some time the skills of the students in the food they make and in their interaction with customers cannot be understated. Every week they just get better and better. This is learning and teaching at its very best.

And if you don’t know where St Colms is in Kirkwall it is round the back of the Glaitness School.
