Cool people

Well the carnival is over. We had our best trading day so far, and cut some of our losses. Alan and Phil from Biggles FM came in and interviewed us after the carnival, and that was broadcast on Sunday.

We have a new fridge thanks to two lovely donations to the Cafe. One of which was anonymous, so who ever you are, thanks so much for the encouraging note, and for the donation. Our old fridge had the sound output and cooling capabilities of a chain-saw. Now we're greener, cooling just the air inside the fridge instead of the whole town. Thankyou to those 'Cool' people.

If you fancy helping Cafe Mocha, you can:
- Pre-pay for your coffee using special cards (But 9 get 1 free)
- Volunteer
- Or just spread the word.

We're another little bit greener.

This time, we've invested in a pair of solar panels that sit in our shop window.

Whilst you're drinking coffee and reading our papers, you can now recharge your ipod, mobile phone or other gadgets (for free) using the power of the sun. Our solar panels charge batteries, that in turn charge your gadget, so you'll get a green charge even if it's cloudy outside.

Renewable Energy

The best quote for renewable energy makes our electricity bill another £12.50 more expensive a month. After we've enjoyed the benefit of exemption from the climate change levy, it'll still cost us £150 extra a year to be greener.

Still, that's not the point. It does mean that the energy used to grind, and heat your coffee, cool your fair trade juices and light your newspaper on a gloomy day, will have come 100% from renewable sources.

We're a another bit greener!
