Cafe Cibo Re-opens

Tracey Platt, the new owner of Cafe Cibo, provides this update on progress towards the re-opening of the cafe on Banks Parade.

We have been extremely busy decorating both the flat and shop and now expect to open on the first or second week of November. Unfortunately, as often happens on a refurbishment, problems pop up unexpectedly and slow things down.

We have had lots of help from friends and family and support from local residents has been overwhelming. It's so nice to know that local people want the cafe and are prepared to support us. So a big thank you to one and all.

We have had a few comments about the mural on the wall of the cafe and how important it is to the community. Unfortunately it isn't in keeping with the decor we had planned so we have been desperately thinking of ways to preserve it. I understand it was painted by a local resident's family member and, lovely as it is, we will have to cover it up.

We have come up with a way of preserving it by covering it in a wood cladding and painting on that. Hence, the painting will sustain only minimal damage and could be uncovered should someone want to do so in the future.

Please keep the suggestions coming — they are very interesting to read and we have received some very useful ideas.

Looking forward to meeting you all on our open day on early November. Please keep an eye on Haddenham.net for further details.
