Dear wonderful customers and community,

We have made the decision to close. We don’t know how long for.

We will await news of any government support and guidance before deciding on whether we offer a no-contact delivery service.

We’ve thought about our stock (perishable), our staff, our suppliers and our neighbours. We have even wondered if we were an essential magical space that uplifts the spirits of many people, young and old, and we think we are, in our own little way.

But the most important thing right now is to do what we can to slow the spread of this thing.

And we think that’s the only thing that matters.

And so we have closed, for now.

We will contact anyone who has an outstanding order with us individually, as well as all of our suppliers.

While you can, order some glorious food online from our wonderful neighbours Park Road Kitchen and Flour to The People, that can be delivered, and buy a bike from Flag Bikes so you can go for a ride in the open air.

And please, please, do your part to social distance. We need to slow this thing down as fast as we can, and in the meantime, whatever it does to our bank balances, and we are worried about ours, we have to just hope that our government feeds us, and cares for us if we need it.

We love you all. And we hope to see you soon.

When you need to, think of the birds, the greenery, the bunting, and the magic. They are all still there.

Much love

John, Lisa, Sam, Sandra, Jean-Luc, Tim, Amaya, Emma, Tam & Kat
