Cornelia’s is now open on Wednesdays, 9am until 11:45am and Saturdays 10:30am until 1pm. All takings will be shared equally between the DEC Covid appeal and the Parish, both in financial need. We will have the same friendly welcome and a beautiful garden setting, but it will be different from normal with Covid-19 precautions. There will be extremely limited seating indoors, one way traffic through to the garden and payment by card only (no cash).
News: We are delighted that as a result of the help of our volunteers in 2019 Cornelia’s made profits of almost £6,000 for charitable causes. Given the current Covid19 situation, and following our usual 1/3rd local charities, 1/3rd overseas charities and 1/3rd church it has been decided to immediately distribute to the following:
· £2k to St Albans Feed Food Bank
· £2k to Care International, working to respond to the needs of vulnerable families across the world who are at risk from the coronavirus pandemic
· £2k to Parish of Harpenden general funds (to partially offset the loss of collection)
Thank you to everyone who supported our community café, Cornelia’s Coffee Shop, through volunteering and/or buying refreshments. It is a valuable community resource and I look forward to a time in the future when we will be able to open again and enjoy each other’s company.
