As we are slowly easing in into new normal (and hopefully this will feel like a distant dream soon) we thought it would be good to set the day for our grand re-opening. Are you ready to hear the date? Our Fair style reopening is going to be on 23rd-24th of October, just before half term. The reason for choosing this date is because we believe this is when most of the restrictions will be lifted, but even if not then I think we will still be able to have some of the activities we are planning. Either way, let’s save the date and get ready to celebrate!
So far we have been open for takeaways for a few hours per week and added some seating outside. We have been also been finishing fit out works as well as this wall mural that is coming along very nicely! We are hoping to open for sit down service very soon as well, although we will still be using takeaway boxes etc till after the grand re-opening.
At the opening we hope to have stalls where you can sell your handmade stuff that you created during lockdown. Currently we have JEMAUS amazingly beautiful pottery, but there are plenty of stalls available for the day. If this is something that interests you then please contact us soon!
There are of course many other ways you can involve. We would love to promote or collaborate with small businesses locally. Currently we are thinking (restrictions allow) to have singers performing, face painters or even caricature artists? So if you think you would like to be involved please contact us! The possibilities are endless, you just need to think outside the box ;-).
The other idea we have is to start preparing for being the cafe that we originally wanted to be. Our core goal is to bring community together through various activities such as crafts, gardening or a book club. Wouldn’t be great if you could sign up for various groups at the launch? We imagine it might be like freshers week at Uni. I have some exciting memories when starting university and signing up for groups made this extra special. So if you like to lead a group based on an interest or a hobby we would love to hear from you! Maybe we can keep those ready for when we are good to go and socialise and meet new people in our area once again.
Finally we would like to thank everyone who helped with our community rainbow bunting. It is looking great! It has been moved onto the ceiling already as we started realising that the sun is bleaching them at the windows (oops). If you still want to contribute with the bunting flags we are still accepting them at the cafe (we even have a drop off box for it!).
Speak to you soon!
