About Us

Our Aim

The Stone Quarry Crew has one main aim, to bring the community together through a variety of events throughout the year to give opportunities for the residents to socialise with friends and neigbours, make new friends and and start to rebuild a cohesive community. Most of the events we run are based around getting together with food and something to drink. This is based on the principle that a family that sits and eats together becomes a cohesive family that communicates well, by bringing the community family together in the same way will have the same results. Our events are for all ages, young, not so young and just young at heart!. We find activities that engage the younger people but still give them the freedom to connect and socialise with the rest of the community, plus if the adults wish to join in with the younger peoples activities they are more than welcome. The ethos of everything we provide is key to ensuring total inclusiveness and affordable for all is very high on the list of priorities, however the lowest possible cost to our residents doesn’t mean low quality. We strive to provide the best quality that we can, to keep our residents coming back again and again.

Get Involved

We are always looking for more people to come and help us on the Crew, there are many different way that you could help.

Crew Management

The Management team is an essential part of the work that we do and it’s important that we have a strong supportive team to keep us going in the right direction. We welcome anyone that wishes to join us in this work and is prepared to share some of the load. We are particularly interested in anyone that has skills and willingness to take on the official roles of Treasurer.

Quarry Café & Community Fridge

The Quarry Café is open Tuesday to Friday 10:30am till 4:00pm With staff shifts starting from 9:30am with setting up and receiving stock and ending at about 5:00pm after clearing down. We need staff who can take shifts throughout the day to lighten the load but shifts do not have to last all day. There are many different roles available including everything from kitchen staff, serving and front of house, till operators to baristas, stock sorting and shelf filling and potential shift managers. We provide in house training for all roles. If your interested why not pop in for a chat and arrange a taster session.
