Warehouse News – Richard Bickle General Manager

Over the winter our team of volunteers have been hard at work decorating office spaces and getting the building ready for new tenants. The main achievement has been the transformation of the old cafe kitchen into a cosy office space with the chimney breast brickwork exposed and re-pointed as an attractive feature.

We were very sorry that the previous operators of the Warehouse Cafe moved out at the end of November. A lot of time over the ensuing weeks was spent working on plans for a new operator to move in. Hopefully by the time you read this the new cafe will have just started trading and we will be looking back at a series of interesting pop-up events during the weeks when the cafe was shut.

Finally, one very welcome but unexpected outcome of the Heritage Weekend back in September is the return of a wholefood shop to the Warehouse. There will be a full report in the next newsletter, but by the time this one lands on your door mats the shop should have recently started trading in the old reception room at the corner of Shaw’s Passage and Allison Street.
