Coffeeshop's first birthday!
continental style cafe, based on an Amsterdam Coffee Shop, in Worthing will this
week celebrate its first Birthday.
Cafe has to date remained open as local authority spent eleven months allowing
the cafe to run, and only recently have asked the owner to apply for planning
Baldwin a fifty-something Pisces man, will happily tell you this was never actually
his intention, he planned to open up and get closed instantly by the police, to
prove a political point but it didn't happen, instead he and a few cannabis campaigners
are now under a constant pressure from customers both medical and recreational
to stay open,because the police wouldn't close it down!
(more probably thousands) of visitors have walked through the doors over the last
year, from all walks of life, and as far away as Holland!
as the cafe reaches its first birthday, Chris and his Staff would like to invite
any member of any newspaper to come along and witness living history, and then
through them ask the public...should it stay..or should it go???
only has this cafe helped over two hundred medical patients, Chris and the majority
of his staff suffer from disabilities.
have created a friendly community cafe where people can meet up with others, and
spend some time doing something they enjoy without being excluded from society.
cafe has bought more turnover to the local area, with restaurants, take always,
newsagents, garages and bed and breakfasts feeling the benefit of the extra visitors
to this beautiful seaside resort, it has also raised a huge political debate,
and with all customers regularly donating to The Legalise Cannabis Alliance (a
registered political party, that Chris has sat as candidate in Worthing in previous
years), it shows these people want to see change.
you would like to take part in the celebrations on Thursday 26th June, please
