AN Eastbourne cafe has decided to close although it can remain partially open.

The Art House is in Grove Road.

It has just posted: “Eastbourne covid rate is now the 38th worst in the country and climbing up the list.

Based on this very troubling growth, we are now closing the cafe to the general public with immediate effect.W

e will be operating the following service on Thursdays – Saturdays 10-2pm :- – pre orders of food & pottery to be collected from the front door – deliveries on Fridays for our pre ordered fresh food & treat Friday cakes.

Please order with as much notice as possible.

We will still be providing lunches for the intensive care department on Fridays & Saturdays.

As our customers are being so kind & making donations we are now able to add desert too to keep them well nourished.

We will also continue to cook for the Warming up the Homeless charity too.

All your pottery will be stored until we can reopen again so please don’t worry & feel that you need to make an unnecessary trip to us.

We are in a far worse situation than we were in during last March/April. Please stay home, limit all of your contacts, stay safe & enjoy the warmth & comfort of your home.”
