Roy Bridge Café opens to a fantastic first day
Congratulations….. to  11  year-old Cameron Whyte, Spean Bridge, who was named the young boxer of the night at a display of boxing in the Nevis Centre when he beat the Glasgow champion Keiron Yardly.  He is also won a similar title recently in Swindon He is now Scottish national champion in his age group! He is certainly a star performer. Cameron made his first Holy Communion with his R.E, class just before Easter.
Our Sick We remember in our prayers at Mass this weekend Polly MacInnes who is in the Belford Hospital, and also Ann MacKintosh who is unwell at the moment.  Both who have asked me to express their thanks to the congregation for their prayers. Colour Bulletin Thank you for your generous response last week when there was a basket at the back of the church asking for your support. Your contributions, plus a very generous cheque from a parishioner, came to just over £200. This will assure the continuity of colour for  a number of months.  God bless you
It was a tremendous and wonderful surprise, almost a miracle, when, on Saturday morning, a temproary notice appeared outside Roy Bridge Stores announcing that the new Café was now OPEN for business! Raymond, Lorna and their family, Christopher, Rachel and Michael are to be congratulated on their immense work and the speed with which they  achieved converting the large store room of the shop into a modern-day Café in such an incredibly short time. Christopher is a very experienced joiner and was responsible for all the joinery work in the building. The customers to the shop during the last few weeks could not be fully aware of the transformation that was taking place behind the curtains, for not only has the village now a top-rate café with a mouth-watering menu, but has also public toilets! The menu has to be seen to be believed: you can have a full Scottish breakfast, hot filled rolls, home-made soups, sandwiches, paninis with a variety of fillings,  baked potatoes and a large selection of coffees from their super modern Italian coffee-making machine. There is also a special menu for children.. The logo was the winning design of Catriona Sutherland of primary 7 in a competition held for  Roy Bridge primary school pupils.
She was presented with a Kindle from Lorna Weir. When Lorna’s three-year old grand-daughter, Ruby, saw the coloured design, she immediately pointed and said:    Cup ’n’ Cake which is now the name by which the café will be known. Out of mouth of babes... Congratulations, and may the café be blessed with all the success it deserves. It is very professional! Be sure to pay it a visit A great place for a coffee  a quick lunch or snack and a chat.
This photo was taken in early morning. For the rest of day, it was a full- house, with all systems go, as many visitors passing through the village were attracted by the café and stopped off for a break and some food.
