Volunteers wanted for after school cafe

bluehouse cafe

Where else can you buy a tea or a coffee for 50p, hot chips for 30p and pizzas for 80p?

Or how about five sausage rolls for 40p, a ham and cheese toasty for 60p or cakes and doughnuts for 40p?

They are just some of the items on offer at the Bluehouse Cafe at the United Reformed Church in Oxted’s Bluehouse Lane.

The Bluehouse Cafe was launched around seven years ago by Deryn Keyton, former deputy head of Oxted School, and her husband Godfrey, and is aimed at the students of the school who can call in for drinks and eats, natter with their mates, or to watch a DVD. Parents are of course welcome to pop in.

The cafe was set up with the co-operation of Oxted School pupils and staff and runs from 3pm every day during term time. Every month donations are taken for charity – it is BBC Children In Need during November and homeless charity Crisis for December.

Deryn was considering closing the cafe after December but she has had a change of heart – however, she is looking for volunteers of all ages to help out.
