Connel surgery coffee shop back in business
CONNEL surgery’s coffee shop is open for business again after a refurbishment.
The coffee shop, which has been in operation since 1999, is run by 24 volunteers, with all profits donated to a charitable trust run by Taynuilt Medical Practice, which makes grants to local organisations.
The upgrade was carried out by local joiner Richard Bergant. All the units were bought from Howdens in Oban which, said one volunteer, Ann Colthart, ‘ were most helpful with the planning and design of the new layout’.
She added: ‘We hope people will come in to see the new layout and enjoy the friendly service offered by our helpers.’
The coffee shop is open Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Everyone is welcome, not just those people visiting the surgery.
