Mark @ The Limes Tea Room

From Mark Hollings

I am fundraising to start my first venture with a café / restaurant. We are looking to transform this old school café from bought in cake and jacket spuds to locally sourced exciting produce made fresh in house daily.

Thankyou to everyone who has so far supported us in our endeavour to get the Tea room up and running and helping with our move to becoming a first time business owners!!!

We are looking out now for Mr Johnson to allow us to open the doors! We may not be ready to go on the 4th of July for a fully operational service, but we are hoping for a proper launch date of around the 15th of July so please stay tuned and watch out for our next update.

To those of you have so far pledged your support and there are some who have invested and donated privately, my utmost gratitude! I have so far earmarked some of your investments for new furniture, crockery and a web site design, so be ready for me to show those all off to you asap!

To everyone else there is still plenty to do! Your support, just by pledging to come and have a coffee and a cake or sharing our page will make a massive difference for the first few months in stabilising the effects of corona virus on the business and mitigating the potential for lower turnouts by raising awareness.

Hope you all keep well and stay safe!

Mark

More Info

I have been working as a chef for the last 20 years In various restaurants and gastro pubs, and am now taking the leap acros the void into the world of ownership.

It is a big step for a chef to take and I am looking to you guys for some much needed support!

The opportunity I have found needs some TLC and is going to take some investment to truly get it where I believe it can be and restore its great history.

It is a quirky and homely café in a vibrant garden centre, a place to warm the cockles on a windy wet British morning, or refresh after an afternoon of a  shopping for those house and garden essentials found around the different outlets in the centre . 

The vision is for the café to start each day with a banging British breakfast, alongside a variety of homemade pastries. In the afternoon its time for tea and cake or a more hearty locally sourced lunch. Sundays will be the day to lay down the trowel and come grab an excellent traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings.

Your funding will help towards this vision, through initial capital expenditure, ongoing upgrades to the equipment, crockery and décor. It will be invested into expanding the social outreach of the business, improving the marketing systems, website creation and general reach to the key people; like yourselves who want a place to while away an afternoon in great company with provisions to match.
