On Wednesday 13th September, four North Herts College students had the opportunity to run the farm store for the day. They set to work straight away as there was much to do. “We tidied the shop inside and out”, said Kelly. “I fed the pigs and piglets with the fruit and vegetables that were out of date and they all loved it!”
Leon logged in the new product and stocked the shelves while Craig and Harry delivered bags of logs to sell. The floors were swept, the shelves dusted, the windows cleaned, the fridge items date checked but most importantly the customers were served efficiently and with a smile.
“We had to sort the eggs out and log how many go to the café and how many for the shop. Then we had to bring them to the café”, said Leon. He added, “I really enjoyed working in the shop because I was able to be in charge of the shop.”
The jobs weren’t limited to the inside as Craig painted an outside door and Harry even unclogged the drains. The shop has never looked so good! The customers complimented the students on their helpful attitudes and friendly faces which gave them a great sense of pride.
So a BIG thank you to Craig, Harry, Kelly, Leon and the Rural Care staff on a brilliant job!
Please come back again 🙂
