Are you a bawler or a boomer – or are you just super cool?

Which empty vessel makes the most noise?

‘Superheroes’ can come in many different shapes and guises!

Spiderman (above right) has lots of speed dynamism and tenacity, whereas Supervan (centre) is very sedate and thoughtful with much carrying capacity and dyamic duo Zen (left) has lots of taste with a calming yin and yang balance! Which type of mug best depicts your personality and when with other people, which role do you prefer to take on? Would it be supercool to take Spiderman to Glastonbury?

Coffee break tip from Cottingham.tv

Here’s a trick I learned from teaching: purchase some coffee mugs locally and the next time you have a coffee break, make them available for staff to choose!

Hosting Cottingham Springboard again for 2016

Previously known as the Purple Cow and further to being shut for over a year for a facelift, this successful café bar has re-opened under new management.

The Olive Garden

Offering European-style outdoor tables for summertime café life, the Olive Garden offers a broad range of snacks and drinks to suit the more discerning palette. This successful café-bar concept has influenced the traditional English pub culture where the emphasis is on snacks and food, accompanied by a wider range of non-alcoholic drinks.
