Serving Meals and Tidying Up

Each group is responsible for serving their own meals once the food has been set out by the Catering Team. The dining hall should be left clean and tidy after each meal, this includes clearing tables and sweeping.

Groups are responsible for washing up dishes, plates, cups etc used during mealtimes, and putting them away in the appropriate locations.

For school and youth group residentials we strongly recommend letting children and young people take an active role in clearing up after each meal. A suggested rota is included with your booking pack.
