We will re-schedule planned events but in the meantime we are putting together an exciting programme of on line talks to provide updates from local businesses. These will tell the story of the innovations and adaptations they’ve put in place to successfully work through the current challenging circumstances we all face.
A great insight into how the owners of two hospitality businesses joined forces to create a vibrant shop and takeaway emporium when both of their businesses came to a grinding halt with COVID-19 restrictions in place.
During the first COVID-19 lockdown Jo and her husband, Ant, were forced to close their restaurant and took up baking sour dough and were delivering their bread through Banburyshire. As a result of their baking success, they then turned their restaurant into a pop up shop and bakery.
When allowed, Jo and Ant re-opened the restaurant in the summer with extended outside dining areas but realising the business wasn’t sustainable in such a small space with Covid-19 restrictions in place through the winter, they partnered with JJ Jeffries, the owner of a spectacular events venue in Arlescote, moving their restaurant and shop operation to Primrose Hill Farm.
