Our Story Cafe
Our Story Cafe is a social enterprise cafe currently located at 15 Greyfriars Garden, St Andrews. My wife Gillian Gamble and I co-founded this business in late 2012 to create a welcoming space selling excellent food and drink, to support the social enterprise goals of Our Story: to bring people together to discuss ideas, to be a community hub for storytelling and the creative arts, and to encourage local people to start or grow their small businesses. I am interested in the financial and operational side of the business: the way it works and how to make it run efficiently, and have been helping with this since it started.

Born out of our passions for development and enterprise, my wife and I co-founded a social enterprise company with our dear family friends Neeraj and Vishaka Agarwal. Our basic concept is to sell delicious high-end Darjeeling tea products and to channel this money back into development of education & health concerns in the Darjeeling region. We really believe that 'fairly traded' products can be the highest quality available. We were so inspired by this beautiful mountain region and hope to continue our work there in the future. I have since stepped down from the business to pursue my other interests, however Gillian and the Agarwals are continuing with the vision. You can follow the story and buy tea at www.teapeople.co.uk.
