Chatback Response - Meal Deal
by Stephen Dixon - Friday, 19 October 2018, 3:38 PM
 

There had been some concern about the labelling of the Meal Deal in the shop, with some people unclear as to which products were included in the deal. A new meal deal is due to launch in the coming weeks, where new signage will signal what is available as part of the deal. Until then, please feel free to ask a member of the shop team if you're unsure which products are eligible for the meal deal.

We had a question asking for clarification on the use of the Dine In Scheme app. Search 'Dine In Scheme' in any app store and you can find the correct app. Once downloaded, you should be able to link the app to your current DIS account or set up a completely new one. You can then use the barcode on your phone to pay at Marjon outlets.

If you have any problems please find Alison at the catering office window between 12 and 3, Monday to Friday.

Sad Cup!
by Michelle Parkman - Thursday, 18 October 2018, 11:21 AM
 

Under this news is a picture of a very sad cup :-(

No less than two months ago there were around 40 of them, now there are 9. The chaplain will not be buying anymore new cups this year to keep this one company and we will just provide paper cups (environmentally bad) or ask people to bring their own.

If you see any of these lonely cups around campus please bring them back to their friends in Chapel.

Thank you :-)
