Good News for Rumbles Cafe

As I dropped in for my usual tea and scone, I was delighted to see this in the counter;

 Basically the story is that Rumbles Cafe has secured a ten year deal on its subsidised rent, enabling them to carry on offering employment opportunities to folk with learning disabilities, and reasonably priced food and drink to families (and passing through butterfly hunters) using the park.

Although the amount of rent the cafe pays will go up as the ten year period goes on, and the council wants to see somee better returns for their investment, it has been crucially recognised that a cafe offering a chance for less abled folk a chance to earn a living is not going to be a financial "production line".

Certainly the staff I spoke to were thrilled that the cafe was going to be able to keep going as was, and that is the most important thing.
