Staff at our Otford shop and tearooms sadly said goodbye to their favourite customer- Yasmine. 

Yasmine is a trainee guide dog and her "foster parents" bring her into the shop every Wednesday. But she has finished her puppy walking and is ready to complete her training so 22nd August was her last visit. 

Yasmine has been coming into the shop with members of the Every Step Counts Walking Group as Yasmine's puppy walker, Irene, is one of the group's leaders. Members take part in wellbeing walks led by qualified and dedicated volunteers and afterwards many members of the group come for refreshments in our tearooms.

We love welcoming community groups into the tearooms in Otford.  

Dedicated shop and office,volunteer, Alison, looks forward to seeing Yasmine every week and will miss her visits.

(Only assistance dogs are allowed in the shop but in warmer weather we have tables in the garden and well behaved dogs are very welcome).
