Thanks to Jewson in Henley, the Over 60s Social Club in Greys Road car park has got a brand new coffee bar.
The smart new ex-display kitchen units were installed by volunteers who also kindly donated new tiles for the splash back. As well as cupboards and drawers, there is an integrated fridge – the whole kitchen would have cost around £1800 new.
Liz Hogkin, a committee member at the club saw the ex-display kitchen in the showroom at the builder’s merchants on Reading Road and asked whether they would donate it to the club. Liz said, “I wondered what they did with ex-displays. I thought they might just throw them away so I asked the question. It’s made such an improvement to the area and also the club has just been awarded a 5 star hygiene award which I think the new coffee bar has helped achieve.”
Ian Wright, Jewson Showroom Manager and Daisy Page, Jewson Showroom Consultant were invited to officially open the new coffee bar yesterday. Ian said, “We like to do things for the community and we are really pleased to donate this new coffee bar knowing that it will be used by lots of people every day.”
Anne Eggleton, a regular visitor to the club said, “The old coffee bar was really old and worn out. The tiles were chipped too. This is 200% better than it was.”
