  • Easter Events in Grasmere!

    It's Easter time!

    It's that time of year again when the Easter bunny comes out to play, chocolate eggs cover supermarket shelves and kids have two weeks off from school! Whatever will you do to entertain them? Here are a couple of things happening in Grasmere:

    Easter Crafts

    Crafts at Allan Bank

    As they do every year, Allan Bank of the National Trust will be running Craft workshops every single day 10am-4pm from April 1st until April 23rd! This is completely free other than the usual admission fees for the venue itself and is a guaranteed great day of fun for the little ones.

    Easter Egg Hunt

    Allan Bank Cadbury Egg Hunt

    Another really exciting event being held at the Allan Bank National Trust venue is an egg hunt. All around their Red Squirrel's trail are hidden eggs which you'll have to find - if all of them are found then there will be a yummy chocolate prize waiting at the end! This event costs £2 per person and will be running on the 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th April from 10:30 am until 4:00 pm! This should be great fun for everyone involved and the weather for that weekend should be superb as well!

    Easter Treats at Green's Cafe

    So after a long, hard day of making beautiful crafts at Allan Bank, or searching high and low for eggs, why not pop into Green's Cafe to refuel? As always, we'll have a special cake for the occasion which hasn't been decided yet - this is a picture of last years tasty creation! As well as that, we have a great children's menu which you can have a look at here and we'll be running a specials menu especially for the holidays, so keep your eyes peeled for when we post it!

    Please don't hesitate to contact us if you've any further questions and if you're a larger group then we'd recommend giving us a ring on 015394 35790 to book to avoid any disappointment! We look forward to seeing you!

  • 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!

  • Fred Whitton Challenge - 10th May!

    We are all very much looking forward to welcoming the UK's cycling enthusiasts to Grasmere for the 'Fred Whitton Challenge' on 10th May!

    The Fred Whitton Challenge is a gruelling 112 mile sportive challenge ride for charity around the Lake District, run in memory of Fred Whitton. Thankfully, for us, it starts and finishes in Grasmere, with the route including the climbs of Kirkstone, Honister, Newlands, Whinlatter, Hardknott and Wrynose passes.

    The event has now been running for 16 years, with all profits going to charity, with this year's main charity being Macmillan Cancer Support. They also support the Air Ambulance, Mountain Rescue and youth cycling in all its forms.

    We will be open to serve a full range of wholesome and nutritious dishes, so whether you're cycling or watching, we're with you all the way!
