Lots of hard work and lots of progress this week. Finn was appointed as manager of works and did a very good job sealing windows and cutting wood ( well actually he was carefully supervised and the electric wasn't on !!!) He did get a little distracted and broke off for a spot of sword fighting and bus driving.
Great purchases made this week, which will all add to our venture - many thanks to Phil at Penzance YMCA for his patience and help . Amongst a whole range of useful catering items we finally have a brand new toy to experiment with - our new cash register.
Another exciting purchase was this stunning vintage tea set - Royal Doulton Spindrift - well done to Richard Close for finding this one and to me for carrying back to the car !!!
Have also been busy making these little beauties out of coffee sacks - we want our customers to be comfy.
Ongoing experimenting with food - take a look at our fabulous lunch today......
Sparks continue to fly as Rich and Jamie sort out the seating - cutting the individual seats today after sorting them all out..
Work on the bus was encouraged by a delicious lunch provided by Jill, and break-time tiffin provided by Aimee. The pastry for the quiche was absolutely exquisite, light and crumbly and the chocolate cake and tiffin kept our sugar levels nice and high.
Second coat of paint was applied upstairs, and downstairs progress was made with sealing the windows outside and also sorting out the framework for the kitchen.
New wallpaper that we may be using on the stairwell of the bus - what do you think ? Comment here or leave a comment on our FB page.
As a sideline to Bus Fayre we are considering offering Fashion Consultancy. It was freezing on the bus today so here we have our catering manager Louise sporting her Kehelland fleece, Manga hoodie, Pale grey trousers with the following accesories - Claxton fingerless gloves, black hat and crocs. If you require any fashion advice do not hesitate to contact us.
So exciting that work on the bus is starting to move forward. A hard day's work, painting and sorting out the framework for the kitchen. Great cakes from Jill kept us going...
Here are the photos from today's activities.......
This blog post is really to try and gather some ideas.... so here goes:
Does anyone have any ideas or venues where they would like to see "Busfayre" ?
Any parties, events or celebrations? ( Would have to be accessible for a double decker bus with suitable safe parking)
What merchandise/freebies would you like to see ? (Bags, Mugs, Fridge Magnets etc)
Would you be interested in receiving our newsletter with special offers ? (If yes please go to our contact page this week where there will be a simple form to complete)
Would you want to take part in competitions ?
Would you like to see a loyalty card ?
What food or drink would you absolutely love to have served on the bus? (non-alcoholic at the moment)
Do you have an event that you need a mobile caterer for ? If so contact us to discuss your requirements...
Please comment as we really appreciate your ideas and love to hear opinions... and even if we don't use them immediately we will write them all down for future reference...
