New kitchen means The Hive is buzzing – Ushaw Moor

September 4, 2014 Leave a comment

A VOLUNTEER-run cafe has expanded its fare, after a new kitchen was installed.

The Hive opened on Station Road, in Ushaw Moor, near Durham City, last October, serving drinks, scones and teacakes.

The food menu was limited by the facilities available.

However, a £1,500 grant from Starbucks plus some other cash has paid for a new purpose-built kitchen, meaning hot food can now be prepared on site.

The new menu was introduced last Wednesday (August 27) and volunteers have already noticed a sharp increase in customers.

The Hive is currently open Wednesday to Friday, 10am to 4pm.

There is free use of computers and free wifi and the cafe also serves as a Durham Foodbank distribution point.

Supporters hope to extend its opening hours to five or six days a week, but are dependent on more volunteers coming forward.

Meanwhile, The Hut, another community facility in the village – like The Hive managed by the Ushaw Moor Action Group – has received a small grant from the Mid-Durham Area Action Partnership (AAP).

The money has been put towards buying extra folding tables, junior size tables and chairs, making The Hut more suitable for parent and toddler groups, parties and special events.

A VOLUNTEER-run cafe has opened in a community hub.

 

Drinks, scones and teacakes are being served at The Hive, on Station Road, in Ushaw Moor, near Durham, after the coffee shop was officially opened by social entrepreneur Andrea Watts today (Thursday, October 17).

 

The cafe was set up to meet an identified need for space for the community to meet, particularly young people.

 

It is hoped it will become a training centre for village youngsters, who will get work experience in the cafe.

 

The facility will be run by the Enterprise Development and Education Network (Eden). Eden leader Anne-Marie Booth said: “The opening went really well. We had a near-constant flow of people all day and two young people volunteered to help.”

 

The cafe, decorated with pictures of the local area, will be open Wednesday to Friday 10am to 4pm and Saturday 10am to 2pm.
