• Brathay Marathon 2017

    This year Rob, Ryan, and Harrison have decided to run the Brathay Marathon to raise funds for Brathay Trust, here's why:

    Martin Campbell was a good friend of ours who worked tirelessly and selflessly to promote a positive image of Grasmere and helped the village get back on its feet after the floods of December 2015.  He set up the village Facebook site to report on progress with the rebuilding of the A591 and interviewed and filmed a lot of the officials tasked with the repair of the road. Those clips were shared on line so that we were all aware of how things were progressing.  Martin was chairman of the Governors at Grasmere School and was instrumental in helping those children, cut off by “the gap,” get back to school whilst the repairs were carried out. Martin supported the Brathay Trust as a charity because it has such a positive impact on young lives. He was heavily involved in promoting the Trust and particularly the Brathay Marathon.  He would be seen out on the road with the 10 in 10s with his camera interviewing the runners.  Martin died suddenly in 2016.   We decided that the best way to say our thank you to Martin is to run the Brathay Marathon as part of Team Camera Dude and raise funds for the Brathay Trust.

    Please donate whatever you can.

  • Fairtrade Fortnight

    It's Fairtrade Fortnight!

    Once a year, for two weeks (Monday 27 February - Sunday 12 March), Fairtrade Foundation organises the promotional campaign that is 'Fairtrade Fortnight'. Campaigners, businesses and schools get together to raise better awareness of the Fairtrade movement and what it's all about.

    Behind every bar of chocolate, mug of coffee and pot of tea (to name but a few) are the farmers and workers who are working to improve their lives and communities. When you buy products with the Fairtrade mark, you support these people. To learn more about exactly who is behind your favourite cup of tea, click here.

    Here at Green's, we believe in supporting these farmers and workers that work so hard to make their living. We use Fairtrade chocolate to make our yummy chocolate brownies, Fairtrade coffee beans from Farrer's in Kendal and make our delicious Herdy's hot chocolates using only Fairtrade ingredients. Why not pop in today and ask for something Fairtrade?

    Let's get together to support these workers. Why not try to only buy Fairtrade products for this fortnight? It's a simple change to make; just think of the good you'll be doing and how this can change these worker's lives!

    We hope to see you soon!

  • Congratulations Diana!

    WOW WOW WOW!

    One of our fabulous staff members who has been working as our Saturday girl for a long tim has not only passed her A-levels but she passed with an astonishing 2A* and a B!

    Diana moved from Kenya to England 5 years ago. She started her school life at a primary school in Kenya and then took a big step in coming to The lakes school ( a secondary school in England). Working extremely hard she got to sixth form where she studied maths,chemistry and physics.

    All the hard work paid of as she will be now heading to Bristol university to further her career in a masters in engineering maths where she will also head abroad for a year!

    Diana says the toughest challenge yet was adjusting to the British culture, which is very different to how the to TVs shows presented it

    When she goes she will be greatly missed here at the café as she's always been a fabulous, hardworking and positive member of staff.  But we couldn't want anything more to now see you reach your dreams and goals!

    Here at greens all the staff wish you the very best and hope we will see you again once you leave!!

    Here are some photos of Diana and her friends on the BIG day they found out there results
