Introducing Claire!

Claire Harryman is the new face of Lilypie Café!

As many of you will know, Lilypie Café was closed for August 2016.  Claire reopened the Café doors on Wednesday 7th September.

A little bit about Claire

Claire is a fun-loving mother of two young children (James 5yrs and Esther 2yrs) and wife to one almost 40 year old child.

For a long as I (her husband) can remember, Claire has longed for a tea and cake enterprise.  Her obsession with cake is beyond my comprehension; the picture below taken in 2013 shows just how happy a plate of scones can make her!  When the opportunity to take over the reigns at Lilypie Café presented itself, it was almost a dream come true.

The running of a café is something entirely new to Claire having spent several years working for Local Government in education, at the DVLA as a vehicle inspector and most recently as the Communications Officer for a local secondary school and sports college.  Although running a business is something new, creating delicious food is not.  Her passion for sweet treats, savoury masterpieces and presentation has not wained in the past 11+ years and we see no sign that it is going to.

So that is a small introduction to Claire, please pop in to see her and sample the menu and support her.  She has big plans for this lovely little café and we wish her every success.
