Cafe Velo - Save Our Decking Area

Cafe Velo - Save Our Decking Area

Please allow us to keep our decked seating area outside of the cafe.

Why is this important?

1. It adds a valuable seating area to the cafe and the loss would result in a much reduced income for the business.
2. The outside area is sloped & in icy/wet weather it is dangerous.
3. It has been much admired by passersby, who have commented on how much nicer & inviting it has made the area.
4. We have recently won Cycling UKs best cycling cafe of the year & this has contributed towards it.

Reasons for signing

  • I’m a frequent visitor to Ringwood (I live in Jersey) & very often visit this cafe, the outside area adds character, & looks good. The food is lovely & the staff are friendly. Why wouldn’t the council want to support an independent business?
  • Shouldn't we be promoting town centres... Unless Castle Point is to become the only place in the area to shop? It's not like the Decking is in the way...
  • This has to be the friendliest cafe in Ringwood, why wouldn't you want to find ways to encourage its growth rather than try to crush it. These guys have worked so hard to develop this cafe and enhance this corner of the town.
