CATHEDRAL KITCHEN

thumbnail image Annette and Charlie Betty have been running the Cathedral Kitchen for the past 20 years, virtually without a break, and it is high time now for them to take a little holiday so the Cathedral Kitchen will be closed from the end of June until 1 September to give them some time for rest and recuperation. Once the Kitchen has reopened, it will not be open on Sundays or Mondays. Any inconvenience caused by this closure is much regretted but I am sure that all the regular customers will agree that Annette and Charlie are due a little time away.
