Riverbank Coffee Hut floods.
This image, taken by Rob Seaward – one of our lovely customers, shows the scene in winter 15/16, with the hut bobbing about in the distance.
Many helpful suggestions have been proffered – all sitting somewhere on a scale of simple and practical (door barrier) to inventive but frankly bonkers (build an ark?).
A range of chosen measures has formed a plan and ‘Project Riverbank river-ready’ work begins on 27 February, straight after the half term break. The timing is tight and there’s a lot to do, so we need to crack on – ‘come hell or high water’. (Hope I don’t regret saying that…)
The hut will be closed for two weeks while Ben, Adam, Ross and Rich take the lead in the river-ready refit, with me acting as labourer and general runaround.
We know we can’t hold back the river, so the idea is to minimise the impact – making it easier to hose down, dust off and start all over again.
