Sophie’s Coffee Shop
Sophie’s Coffee Shop in the heart of Hampsthwaite is asking its customers next week to support the local campaign against excessive housing development in the village.
All proceeds from the popular coffee shop’s breakfast ,lunch and afternoon tea service on Monday March 12th will be donated to the Hampsthwaite Action Group who are raising funds to challenge housing developments at 4 sites around the village.
The Coffee Shop and Bistro which opened in 2010 is itself likely to be affected if land behind Hampsthwaite High Street is developed. Breathtaking views of the Dales from the garden of the coffee shop are under threat if plans to build up to 82 new houses go ahead.
So, Bistro and Coffee Shop owner, Sophie Jacobs has generously offered to donate all her takings (and tips!) for the day to help the Action Group.
The village will be destroyed, the community lost and yet another beautiful part of Yorkshire will be completely ruined.
The loss of this natural landscape and wildlife habitat would be devastating.
Supporting the Action Group’s campaign is the least I can do to try to stop this madness.
This is the fourth fund raising event supporting the campaign. A hugely successful Bridge afternoon and Christmas Coffee Morning together with a popular village calendar have already raised much need cash to maintain the Action Group’s challenge.
Action Group chairperson, Terry Mounsey said:
We are really grateful to everyone who has supported us so far and look forward to another successful fundraiser.
Everyone is urged to come along to Sophie’s on Monday, March 12th from 9.30-4pm for a delicious breakfast, lunch or tea and support this important cause.
