Tea at the Green

I didn’t really expect two people to come up with the same winning name for the café. Congratulations to Dave English and the Engineering team at PDG Helicopters for suggesting the new name for the café and winning the draw.

Commiserations to Jason Dearn for suggesting the name and losing the draw!

Anyway, the new name for the café is Tea at the Green. Suggestions that it makes us sound like a golf club will be disregarded.

I’ve only put a small picture on here as we haven’t got any of the newly painted room; the Fire Crew have been busy with their paint brushes this week and the paint isn’t even dry yet.

Cafe Name Competition

As the café’s going to be shut for a few days for repainting, it would seem to be a good time to reconsider the name.

While ‘Café OK’ is understood by some aviators, it puzzles many and certainly doesn’t make any sense to non-aviators.

Suggestions for a new name are invited! Please send your suggestions by e-mail.

Winner (drawn at random if more than one person suggests the winning name) gets a meal for four!

Competition closes at 9am on Thursday 13th February.

(This competition has now closed)
