Food for thought at Philiphaugh

The newly established Month’s End Café based in Philiphaugh Community Centre is growing from strength to strength.

December saw the launch of this very local enterprise.  Volunteer led and delivered, the café offers the opportunity for residents of Bannerfield and the wider Selkirk area, to pop along to share fabulous food and a very welcoming atmosphere in the Community Lounge.

Each dish costs just £1 and 50p for tea or coffee, so a three course lunch with a drink will set you back just £3.50.  These are suggested prices, as this is a running project, so even a donation is much appreciated. What’s not to like?

Go on, treat yourself once a month! Amanda Dempsey, one of the organisers commented “The more it is used the longer it will last. Use it or Lose it, as they say!”

“We plan to keep the menu themed and roughly seasonal and will always have a delicious soup on offer, whatever the weather. In January we enjoyed Haggis and Cranachan on the menu, in our nod to The Bard, Mr Rabbie Burns. And in February flipped us a savoury pancake and a ‘hearty’ truffle in honour of Shrove Tuesday and St Valentine.”

So why not pop along on Thursday 26th March to help us herald the arrival of Spring with a delicious and not too mysterious, combination of eggs and chocolate as we prepare for the Easter holiday.

Food is served from 11.00  –  1.30. You are also more than welcome to pop along earlier than that if you would just like a coffee and a warm up.  

“After the school run?  Just before the Doctor’s appointment?  Reward for bravery at the dentist!  Treat for walking round the block? Whatever you’re doing, pop in and say Hello.  We’d love to see you!” replies Amanda this week “Please come along for a chat and enjoy the company”
