Event Description

We heard today from Fay that it now seems likely that our Council will request competitive tenders for the future operation of the location currently occupied by Fay and her wonderful Tea Garden. This could lead to Fay's service being replaced by another provider which could include a catering chain.

We all appreciate the great service provided by Fay in the Tea Garden for nearly 10 years, a service which is welcoming and personal, offering produce that is usually locally sourced and very good value. Fay opens her van for us in all weathers and throughout the seasons; she provides more than just refreshments for the body but is also a haven of community and relaxation in our busy lives as well as acting as an informal guardian of our beautiful park.

We are concerned that we might lose this special contribution to local life and to the local community.

If you share our concern, and have not already done so, please take 5 minutes to send an email in support of Fay and The Tea Garden to the Council officer responsible for the possible tendering :-

Mr. Russell Mercer, Business Manager, Parks and Open Spaces, Bristol City Council. russell.mercer@bristol.gov.uk

We would be grateful if you could do this as soon as possible.

There is now a petition you can sign to help us show the council that we want Fay’s cafe to stay as it is.
