Do you love to read?
If you had asked me that question a few years ago I am not sure you would get the same answer, but today I can honestly say that I love to read, albeit at a snails pace and possibly with 2 or 3 books on the go at once! But I have definitely developed a passion for reading over the last few years.
Attending our monthly book club at Keeper's really encourages me to read a book, cover to cover, (although I often read the ending first!!) I look forward to the discussions with the rest of the group about the book, rarely do we all agree and its always interesting to listen to everyones critic of the book, the over all scores for each book and then looking back at our favourites.
Attending a book group was not on my bucket list, but I am so pleased it is now a regular event on my social calendar, it has encouraged me to read books I wouldn't normally chose, finish a book within a month (a challenge some months I can tell you) and to reflect on the story and the characters.
So if you have ever wanted to join a book club, come along to Keeper's monthly meet up, we are a lovely friendly bunch and of course you will be able to treat yourself to some tasty homemade cake and coffee too.
Have a look at this months Book Club read its, A Man called Ove by Fredrik Backman. We meet on Wednesday 25th April at 7pm.
Happy Reading : )
Looking back over the last 3 years and seeing how far we have come since we first opened has been heartwarming. It has been a great journey so far, packed with amazing staff, customers and of course cake!
We are so proud of Keeper's and the community which has grown around the Cafe, it is a pleasure to be part of it.
As I am sure you will know we have dabbled in a range of workshops and events, changed opening hours and teamed up with some amazing local businesses along the way. As Keeper's grows the work-life balance has been a challenge, what with Linda's old age (ssh don't tell her I said so!) and my busy family life it has been difficult at times to juggle all the elements!
But we LOVE Keeper's and of course Cake, as I am sure you'll know, the hardest part of the job is all the taste testing we have to do to ensure the cake is 'perfect!' So it has taken some time and lots of cake to decide how to create balance, but after lots of discussions we have decided to change our opening hours with affect from March.
Keeper's will be closing a Tuesday and open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 9.30-4.00 and Saturday 10.00-3.30. We look forward to catching up with you.
We have lots happening over the next couple of months including a World book day story time and a weaving demonstration so keep an eye on our events page.
