AN OPPORTUNITY to run a café has arisen at a Herne Bay arts centre. A new kitchen and café room were installed on the premises of Beach Creative last year and now the group behind it is offering “the right person” the chance to run the café as their own business. It is on the ground floor next to two gallery rooms and the venue hosts exhibitions, workshops, meetings and evening events. It must be open during Beach Creative opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday from 10am-4pm and Sunday from 10am-1pm, although there is flexibility. All the equipment needed for the café is provided, such as cups, tea pots, cafetieres, plates and cutlery. A coffee machine is not supplied. A minimal rent will be charged to cover utilities, while public liability insurance must be arranged. The current ‘excellent’ food hygiene rating needs to be maintained. Advice for this is available. A Beach Creative spokesman said:
“An Aldi supermarket – without a café – is going to be built this summer very close to our building. Their car park will be between us. We have received funding from Kew Gardens to build a garden area in the space between us and this too will be an extension of the café.”
