As you are aware, we had hoped to be in a position to part-open the main canteen facility by now, enabling us to offer a wider menu choice to more students. Unfortunately, we have not yet received the go-ahead from our insurers to commence any of the clean-up operation, so this is not an option at present. I would, therefore, like to ask for your continued support in providing students with a packed lunch from home. We will, of course, continue to provide a limited range of cold food to those students where this is not an option. The reason this service is limited is because, without the main canteen area, we do not have the space to serve the numbers of students that we would normally accommodate in the time we have available.
Having met with the Insurers yesterday, we hope to get the go-ahead to start the works next week and we will then be in a position to give you a more accurate idea of the time-frame.
If you have any concerns regarding this arrangement, please do not hesitate to let us know.
