Ruddington’s popular Jasper’s Café celebrated raising over £2,500 last month through the generosity of Ruddington residents. The café closed its original premises at Bar Six (now Apotheka) in February and since then, owners Paul Carver and Cathy Hatfield have been working hard to renovate their new site at the old Drinks And More convenience store on the High Street.
“The last two months of trading at the Bar Six site were our busiest ever and we had so much positive feedback from our customers. Our new premises has needed a lot of work, but we wouldn’t be able to give it the finish it deserves without the fantastic support of Ruddington with our crowdfunding effort!” says Paul.
“Many of the materials we’ve used have been reclaimed and upcycled, we’ve installed new electrics and plumbing throughout, built a brand new kitchen and toilets – and the crowdfunding money has been invaluable in achieving all this”.
With Jasper’s new, purpose-built facilities, Paul plans to offer a broader menu, including fresh cakes, and also expand the café’s outside catering enterprise. He’s tight-lipped on the opening date, but hopes to launch in the coming weeks.
“We’ll be announcing our big reveal soon, and look forward to rewarding all our amazing crowdfunding supporters”.
