Lots of you have suggested that it would be great to sit out on the pavement on a summery day and watch the world go by. We think it's a great idea too, and have submitted our application and paid our money to the council. We should hear back any day now (fingers crossed!)
If all goes well, you will soon be able to sit in the sunshine and sip something cool (like a gin and tonic, or a cola float).
The application required us to state exactly which chairs and tables we were going to use. The idea of this is to protect the overall appearance of the area. Although we love mismatched secondhand furniture and it works beautifully in our space, if we're on the pavement we need to consider our neighbouring businesses and the general look of the cultural quarter.
This means buying new stuff when we're used to being more creative and saving money with wonky old things! The total cost for new tables, chairs and barriers to comply with the requirements of our application is £585 and we need your help to raise it.
Here are some of our crew demonstrating the current sorry state of affairs.......no tables, no chairs.....just thin airs....
Donate now before our crew get cramp in their thighs!
