A solid month of celebrating has nearly finished us off but we have enjoyed ourselves! Happy Birthday to Millie and James of course but special congratulations to Harry who has come of age! Yes I am now the mother of an 18 year old which has caused me some consternation these past few weeks!
Fortunately I have been distracted by some other momentous events and our glamorous night out at The Herald Express Tourism Awards. It has been widely published already but we’re so proud that our team won Silver! There are so many great cafes in Torbay. To be recognised and rewarded as standing out within the tourism and hospitality industry is quite an accolade and we are incredibly grateful to everyone who has encouraged and supported us! Here we are in all our finery …
It has turned out to be quite a week! Earlier in the year we were judged by a mystery shopper from The Beverage Standards Awards and we have just heard that Millie and Me has been awarded a 3 cup accreditation which means that the standard was considered ‘Excellent’ when judged against the National criteria including the quality and presentation of the drinks themselves and also ambiance, sustainability and customer service. We would like to thank CoffeeWest our suppliers for having the faith to put us forward for the awards and also for their continued support and training! More about this next time ……
If you’re reading this then you’re following a link from either facebook or twitter straight to our website. Thanks to a mini refresher from Ross our IT guru I have been able to update all the images so do take a moment to have a look and I’d appreciate any feedback! I’m going to be adding loads of links to recognize and promote all the amazing local suppliers we use too!
