Battle Observer ‘cafe of the year’ See page 26 of The Battle Observer. Vote for the Hurst Green Shop and Cafe. Nominations need to be in by 28th July to be short listed.

The Hurst Green Community Shop & Cafe continues to grow in popularity and now needs a cook.

Due to the growing demand on the cafe a cook is urgently required over the weekends to help with the busy morning periods. The need has become SO URGENT that the shop has upgraded this role from a volunteer post to A PAID POST. The person would be required between 10.00 am and 1.30 pm on Saturdays & Sundays i.e. 7 hours a week. The post could be shared by 2 people so that they only have to work every other weekend. For further details please contact the Manager Claire Vidler on 01580 860 070 of e-mail Volunteers to help with washing dishes using machine and with other duties would be very much appreciated.

The Hurst Green Community Shop & Cafe continues to evolve and the cafe is increasing its range of snacks and dishes (one of the best ploughman’s yet) within the unique converted church set back in the garden space.

Opening Hours are: Monday - Friday: 7.30am - 6pm. Saturday: 9am - 1am Sunday: 10am - 1pm Website:
