“More than just a cup of coffee”
*** THIS SURVEY HAS NOW CLOSED, thank you to all who responded ***
At the meeting on 28 September, the Town Council heard from residents how much they missed the Black Cat Café since it had ceased trading last month.
A group of people are trying to put a rescue package together, working with the directors of the café business, and the Town Council resolved to support the effort.
A questionnaire is the first step. We would like to determine the level of support for acquiring the building as a community asset and launching a new café business. We would also like to hear from anyone who feels they can help.
There is less time than we hoped to save the café. We have been tasked with producing a complete business plan by Friday 21st October, so please complete your questionnaire as soon as possible. Paper copies were printed with a deadline of 30 October, before this was known.
Paper copies of the questionnaire are being distributed to households across the parish and can be returned to the collection box in Fruitcakes. Every household in town, and as many supporters of the café as we can reach, will be asked to complete one questionnaire, ideally capturing the input of the whole household, not just the individual completing the form.
It would be very helpful if you could complete your response online, as this will save us time when collating the results. Click the button below to access the questionnaire online.
The results of the survey will be published by the Town Council in due course.
