Hey hey, gorgeous cafe

Have you been in Dock Cafe recently?  It’s looking pretty smart!

IMG_2257As you can imagine, after the 5,500 customers who swung by during the Tall Ships weekend had left, both the volunteers and the cafe were looking a bit wrecked!

But nothing can stop the utter amazingness of the Dock team and the wonderful volunteers…  Over the 12th weekend the cafe was closed for a couple of days – but rather than taking the whole time to lie in a darkened room, James and the gang got to work on a refurb of the cafe.

Floor re-painted (you could eat your dinner off it now!), walls, painted, wobbly furniture fixed, artwork freshened up, lots of new furniture moved in to create new cosier corners, snazzy wooden floor fitted in the loo, and a nice coat of H&W yellow on the railings at the entrance – the place looks amazing!

(Thanks to our tweeting customers for some of the pics!)

Call in soon to admire their handiwork – and make sure to say a wee word of thanks to the volunteers while you’re there.  What they’re doing is nothing short of miraculous.
