Well, I’m back. As someone famously said(A Hobbit I think), May was a massively successful month for The Rake, we had a great Lovebeer event upstairs on the 15th when Dark Star came to town and generally takings were rather good. I Like to think this was because the staff were working their arses off whilst I was away so thanks to Tom and the rest of my team.
We said Goodbye to two rather good members of staff in Annie and Gavin who have gone off to do…whatever it is they wanted to do when they weren’t working at The Rake and we wish them luck with everything they do in the future. We’ve also welcomed Felix into our small Utobeer family and hope that he enjoys the beers as much as you lot seem to.
We’re also going to say goodbye to Dave at the end of the month, as he’s starting off in a new direction, I’d like to thank him for his hard work and wish him well for the future.
This of course means that I need another full time member of staff as we’re coming into summer(although looking out the window today you wouldn’t know it!) So if you know anyone that might be interested, have them email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into the bar with their CV. Ideally I’d like someone with experience but a passion for beer is the main criteria at the moment.
thanks for reading
