Here is a round-up of the events at The Swan during May, 2022.

12th May: Epic Thursday

A truly Epic Thursday this week as the students and Green Room School staff produced wonderful meals in our new Kitchen and served it to our many happy customers. In their own words ...

We had an AMAZING time yesterday for Epic Thursday! GR6 were absolutely privileged to be able to serve some of the first food out of The Swan's new wonderful kitchen! Great things lie ahead. We're so happy that we could serve so many customers such an amazing breakfast. We'll be doing it all again next Thursday with our Epic Brunch Menu.

Epic Thursdays allow the students to learn a range of skills for the future including coffee barrista, taking payments, serving, taking orders, preparing & cooking food and clearing up. All useful for getting a job in the future.

13th May: The W&E Dray

We were delighted to learn that the Windsor and Eton Brewery Dray would be doing the beer drop-off for our Kitchen opening. A great sight in Mill Lane and a great tradition that The Brewery is continuing.

After a significant amount of work over several years, and with covid to boot, The Kitchen is now open. Thanks to everyone involved in this fantastic achievement. All you have to do is try it for yourself.

27th May: Coffee Morning

On the last Friday of every month we have a charity coffee morning for the local community. Baking is generously donated, and the bar team and students offer their time to help. Funds are raised for a chosen worthy cause.

This month we chose to support our local charity for 2022, the Family Friends. With nearly 50 people attending, we managed together to raise a whopping &#pound;432.36 for them. Thanks to every one who got involved.
