Nearly there!

You will have seen a lot of activity over the last two days… Simon Bentley & Steve Benson are putting the finishing touches to the electrics having been project managing and sourcing friends and family and other tradesmen to help out… Sandy Carr has been in charge of gas and plumbing – helped as soon as he can everytime, likewise Dave Law the joiner.  Kevin and his son Kim have been doing all the internal and external decorating and Marke Tooke and his team have been replacing the wreck of a roof.  Capsticks have been great with the flooring – as flexible as any roll of lino.  Thanks to you all… we’re in the home straight now.

But back to the intense activity… the range is now in, and as I write this it is heating up for the first time.  Just with water to start with to make sure it is leakproof, clean and working properly.

It looks a lot like the Starship Enterprise….  within a couple of weeks (after a LOT of cleaning) we will have take-off!

  1. We moved into Shap shortly before the chippy closed down and we were gutted as it was our Friday night treat. We are really excited of the developments and really can’t wait to see you open. We will be there to support you in your new venture and keep the updates coming!

    1. Thank you, we are getting so excited… and nervous!

  2. Exciting! Wondering if we need to book tickets for the grand opening – whenever that is! Tables on the street?
