Tuck Shop Developments

 Schools this Summer have enjoyed shopping in our new enlarged and improved Tuck Shop. Taking advantage of over twice the amount of room Debbie has expanded the product range of goods for sale and there are now several exciting new lines in gifts and souvenirs that are proving very popular with students.
In fact we think it wont be long before Debbie has a whole chain of shops and franchises coming to a place near you along with on-line shopping as well!

We recommend for a 5 day stay that students bring a maximum of £8-£10 and that limits are set by visiting staff on what can be spent on 'tuck'. We do after all feed them well on three meals a day! With an increasing turnover and increased product range Debbie has more work to do with stock taking and reordering and to help with this and auditing requirements we now have even got a till! This replaces the old cash box and allows recording on till rolls for money spent each week. As this is a job carried out by visiting staff we ask them to familiarise themselves with the easy to use instructions that explain all.

The profit from our tuck shop goes on buying new recreational equipment for student use and to charity.
