Once I was told to close as a cafe and informed we were allowed to operate as a takeaway/delivery service, that’s the route I went down to try and stay open. However, it wasn’t financially beneficial to keep my staff at work. When the prime minister’s announcement was made on Monday evening I made the decision that I would close. But I can’t thank everyone enough for their support and sorry to let customers down. I hope to be open very soon (as do all other businesses).
