August 2022 Community Update

Thank you to everyone including those not shown above, for your support, physical efforts, donations and good spirit toward the reopening of BCCA’s Community Cafe’.

The first BCCCafé Arts Exhibition in July featured the works of well known and much respected local artist Gabriele Gad (1946-2022) who lived in Bonnington Square for 40 years.

Primarily a jazz musician and psychotherapist, she also found expression through art. Her paintings, often abstract, reflected her spiritual beliefs and therapeutic methods.

Gabriele’s Celebration of Life Exhibition proved to be a popular enjoyable and memorable event and a perfect marker of the exciting potential of our freshly renovated and revitalised local Community Cafe.

Further ongoing exciting Exhibitions will feature local artists. Applicants for joining the list of Exhibitors are welcome.

Work continues on completing the kitchen refurb for resumption of evening Café service. We look forward to re-opening very soon with an exciting and varied rota of excellent previous and new vegetarian and vegan cooks with an emphasis on local talent. If you are interested in cooking at the Café the required License is available for viewing on request.

Improvement of the Café’s rear garden area with fresh planting and donated artworks continues. The Café’s frontage will be redecorated using the same colours and general design with the addition of a Bonnington Festival dove as contributed by 4th World Arts.

If you are able to Volunteer or to contribute in any way whatsoever – Please do!
