It has been brought to our attention that whilst an update was emailed out a few weeks ago to all backers that we haven’t updated any of social media. So here were are rectifying that.
Firstly we’d like to apologise for not updating you sooner. We’ve had lots to do and really wanted to have something concrete to update you with first.
We have now had the keys to 57 Dartmouth Road for just over a month and in that time sadly not a lot has happened inside the shop. We always knew that the staircase would need replacing, however it turns out that the whole thing needs resiting. This is a considerably bigger job than we had initially planned for so as a result things are going to take longer to get finished. We have also discovered an extensive damp problem in the back room.
This is something that we could not possibly have know about until the building work began as it was only found when the builder started to remove the ceiling. Thankfully this issue is not our responsibility but that of the Landlord.
We would like to reassure you all that these setbacks will not prevent Leaf and Groove going ahead. It will just mean that it will take us a little longer to get open. Thank you all again for your continued support.
Charlotte & Simon
