Cloverdale Retreat Café … Overpriced!

My husband and I visited this local new cafe at The Priory Marina in Bedford. We were going to have lunch there but we were stunned by how the prices of sandwiches and cakes. A normal baguette is £6.50 and a pasty would cost you £7.00.  Now that is too expensive. The prices on the website didn’t seem to be the same when we were there. The lady didn’t even say ‘check our menu, there are more to choose from.’ until we saw the menu.

So we ordered one baguette to share. Presentation was awful. Side salad looked old. Bacon was too oily in the baguette. Disappointing. The only nice thing about it was the tea and the view by the lake. But I find it overpriced.

Mowsbury Park cafe is better. Their prices are reasonable. Also Browne’s at Castle Road, their sandwiches and baguettes are half price than Cloverdale’s and presented well.

Cloverdale Retreat cafe is lovely, great place and location but overpriced. Imagine if you are with your whole family, you could be spending £40 easily for 4 people. The two of us spent like £15 for one baguette, one cake and two teas. Not worth it. That’s like going to Starbucks.

FitSteps masterclass with Ian Waite…

It is always good to refresh your skills and go back to basics to be able to improve and be better. As a FitSteps instructor, it is essential for me to keep myself motivated and through attending masterclasses, I know that I will benefit even more to give what my FitSteppers deserve – the best of FitSteps.

It was such a fun day to meet Ian Waite once again, had a laugh, learned new moves, and got inspired even more as an instructor.

I would like to thank David Lloyd Milton Keynes for the wonderful time I’ve had.

FitSteps with Viv is running in Bedford  every Wednesday – 7:15pm and Friday – 9:30am, Brickhill Community Centre.

 

 

FitSteps at the Bedford River Festival 2016

Look at my FitSteppers now! They are performing people, performing!  Yes, and  infront of a big crowd after just a few months of doing FitSteps with me. We did a FiSteps dance demo at the Sports Village stage, and we were able to deliver the message we wanted to tell people about FitSteps and how amazing it is to dance. Wish all of my FitSteppers were on stage with us but I’m only allowed a few people to dance with me due to limited space on stage. What I love about my class is the mixture of levels/abilities/ages, and they just go for it. Some of them had background in dance, even a professional dancer, and others never danced at all, and it proved today that what matters most is that you are enjoying what you’re doing. That if you put your heart and focus into something you really love, you will shine in every way. To all my FitSteppers, THANK YOU! I am so PROUD of everyone, not just the ones who performed last week, yesterday and today, but EVERYONE who does my class! xxx

What an amazing weekend indeed!  Boiling hot, but brilliant!
