Stuff in Toffee Apple!

Hi there

There are some things in Toffee Apple that are for FOOP, I think...they're on the shelves, not the boxes. Banana chips, dried figs, dried chickpeas, soap etc.

ALSO! There are boxes for y'all! Under the Events Board/sound desk thing in the Cafe.

Yum.

Old St Paul's have quoted £160 for use of hall, 10am to midnight on Saturday 10th December, for both banquet and scavanger hunt.

What do you think? I think it seems fair. Would like to be able to confirm today if possible.
