‘We have loved being part of your wonderful community’: Popular Netherfield cafe closes as owners pay tribute to customers


A popular Netherfield cafe has closed its doors due to water leaks that have resulted in the building becoming ‘unsafe’.

Connect @ Netherfield on Victoria Road posted the sad news about their decision on their social media accounts earlier this morning (1).

A heartfelt post on Facebook read: “We are very sad to inform you that the cafe has stopped trading in the current building due to the leaks being unsafe.

“We know this will be a shock but the building is now inadequate for trading and in breach of health and safety.

“Thank you to each and every customer for all your support and encouragement over the last two-and-a-half years.

“We have loved being on your high street and part of your wonderful community.”

The post appeared this morning on the cafe’s social media channels

The cafe owners reassured customers that despite the closure, their popular social groups will continue and instead meet at the nearby St George’s Centre.

The community reacted with sadness at the news and posted appreciative comments on the post.

Amy Bicer wrote: “Oh what sad news. You really have become the heart of Netherfield. What a loss. Thanks for all your support.”
