Behind the scenes at Box Hill: Cafe pyjama party
How’s this for dedication to duty? Our Box Hill catering staff camped out in the café at Box Hill overnight on Friday so they could be ready bright and early to serve today’s cycle race fans.
The sleepover was the best way to make sure everyone was on site on time to welcome the thousands of people expected to line the steep and challenging Zig Zag road.
In the last 24 hours the hard working team have baked hundreds of cakes and made around 2,000 sandwiches. Now they’re preparing to serve up to 15,000 cuppas to thirsty road race fans.
Our retail and catering manager Suzanne Taylor said: “There are about twelve of us here and it’s been quite good fun really. We are all enjoying it, everybody is mucking in and it’s all been great.
