Urgent Message – Cashless Catering System

Message from Community Resources – Cashless Catering System

Please be advised that our cashless school meal system is unlikely to be operational over the next few days due to upgrade works following the Ransomware attacks at health boards over the weekend.

The goal is to get the system back up and running asap however school meals will continue to be provided and the payments will be deducted from cards later in the week.

An update text will follow to advise of timescales for when the system will be operational.

Many thanks for your assistance.
