Keep coffee local
Keep coffee local ONE OF the pleasures of Pocklington town centre has been the ability to pop into a different café, including Judsons and Burnby Hall Gardens café, every morning or afternoon for coffee, tea or snacks or main meals.
Each one has its own character, friendly atmosphere and is privately owned. The existing cafés already have all the characteristics that senior planner, Lorraine Davison, spuriously claims Costa Coffee would bring to the town centre.
If Costa Coffee (an American franchise) is allowed to open and even one of our existing cafés is forced to close this would be a great loss to the uniqueness of the town centre. If anyone really is desperate for a Costa Coffee the petrol station already sells the stuff. Our councillors should fight this proposal toot and nail.
