Cafe beginnings!

Dearest Luminary crowdfunders!

Thank you so much for your patience with this project as we work to get our new bakery & cafe finished. The works have unfortunately cost a lot more than we were able to raise, so we had to put a hold on doing any more while fundraising efforts continued. But I can now confirm that we have secured a grant for the remaining works so WE ARE BACK ON!!

Things are starting to take shape in here... in the next few weeks our coffee machine & counter will be installed, and lighting is being fitted so then it's just a bit more painting & kitting out with lovely furnishings and we'll be done!

We are doing our best to offer the rewards that we are currently in a position to offer, for example the workshops, which have been a blast! Check out some lovely crowdfunders enjoying their bread masterclass:

But we are aware that many of your rewards require a finished cafe to come and enjoy! SO our timeframe is that we're aiming to have this place ready by the end of April, and obviously you lovelies need to be the first to enjoy it! We'll be taking bookings for May for your high teas & will invite you to come and redeem your free baked goods then. As we're still at the mercy of builders and electricians, we aren't booking in exact dates yet but we wanted to let you know that, all being well, you should be able to come and enjoy our cafe on a Saturday in May!!

You might have spotted our faces popping up on billboards across the UK as Crowdfunder have used Luminary in the advertising, describing us as "funded by the crowd" - that's you guys! Keep your eyes peeled as those billboards are thanking YOU :)
