Refreshments Instructions:

Week before:
Check stock of tea, coffee, cups and biscuits. Ask your fellow refreshments organizers for their contact details, if you are going to need to communicate during the week.
On the day:
Bring 2 pints of milk, plus additional supplies as necessary. Arrive as close to 7.00pm as possible and bring the table forward ready for use.

All the equipment is in the low cupboards to the right of the robing room. Half fill and plug in urn. Set at no.6 and switch on (the switch is on the side of the urn).

Once water has boiled, turn down to 2.5 and leave ready for interval. Make sure bowl and notice are conspicuous for donations.

During interval: fill tea-pots (2 /3 tea-bags in each pot) and supervise.
After rehearsal: clear away. Give cash to Olivia. If she isn’t present, take cash home and bring to the next rehearsal.
Both Tom and Joan often arrive early if there are any problems.
