So sorry to hear that. ...

Bah, meh & pfft. Depressed to report that the cafe was broken into again last night; nothing of value is left in the van but Sara super upset & pointless vandalism/theft of some uncooked food & a few cans of pop plus the dustbin (presumably to carry the pop in?), some eggs & the bin liners. Unfortunately they tested out the tools they used on the fence around the wildlife area so that's damaged too & they set the litter bin on fire #pointlessvandalism #bloodyannoying Reported to the police etc & THaNK YOu to all who helped sort things out this am - it is much appreciated & we ❤️ u x
