For many years a breakfast has been served every Friday morning between 8.00 and 10.00 am in the hall of St Andrew’s URC on Upper Hanover Street. Run by a team of volunteers from St Mark’s, St Andrew’s, university students and local people, it was historically a project of Churches Together in Broomhill and Broomhall. However recent changes to the umbrella organisation mean that the breakfast cannot continue to run in the same way.
So it is with sadness that the Breakfast has currently suspended its operations: the decision to press pause had been made before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic but obviously that has had an impact as well. Conversations are taking place in the hope that there may be some possibility of reopening under new oversight after the public health crisis has passed.
We are so grateful to all volunteers past and present, and will really miss the customers, many of whom have been coming for years – thank you to everyone who had helped brighten up Friday mornings!
