One step closer to new tea/coffee shop in Burwash High Street

Burwash is one step closer to having its own tea and coffee shop again in the High Street.

Rother District Council has accepted an application for a change of use on the site of the former Freeman Forman estate agency in the village.

A new organisation – the Burwash Community Interest Company (BCIC)- has taken on a lease for the site and has raised money locally to pay for refurbishing the premises ready for a new tea and coffee shop operator. Plans are well advanced.

There will be regular updates on the Burwash website, the Burwash App and the Burwash E-Bulletin.

It is hoped that that the new shop will be up and running by late Spring.
