However, as you’ll discover, it’s more than a store.
It’s also more than a cafe.
Jon – who bought the old Co-op building for his business Derwent Hydro (which operates on the lower floor), decided along with his wife Jill, to revive the upper floor space.
Together – and under the managership of Haeri Jung – they have created Re [space]. The name alone is intriguing, and the space is individual and re [freshing]!Take time to read Jill’s vision statement… and take time to pop over, say hello… and help support the re [generation] of our old store.
As the photos show (more below), Jon and Jill have worked hard to create something special and inviting.
First-day visitors were very impressed as these comments show… ‘Very attractive layout’… ‘I love the retro design’… ‘Milford really needs this so I hope it catches on’…’I can see this becoming a community hub – it ticks so many boxes’… ‘I don’t know how they’ve done it but it looks more spacious than I remember it’.
We are excited about opening a place called Re [space].
The [space] is because we hope it will be different things to different people at different times…. Refresh, Revisit, Remember, Recall, Restock, Replenish, Refill, Relax…fill in your choice,
all these things & more!!!!
A space for ‘Re[ ]’ in any good sense of the word!!!!
We are hoping it will be something the community will like!
A friendly place for everyone.
A small shop, Re[store],
providing basics, the things we need regularly or run out of –
bread, milk and wine….
We hope the shop could Re[act] to your needs.
A café, Re[fresh]
a change of scenery,
a place to meet up with friends,
a place to find new friends.
Coffee – cake – tea – teacake.
A meeting place Re[union].
We are exploring Retail opportunities
maybe use the venue for pop-up shops and bespoke retail items
maybe have designated times with a focus for special interest groups – needlework?
A Re[play] area with beam projected games for the young, or at other times a musical or literary event.
Another hope is that Charities may benefit….
a percentage of profit to be pledged on an ongoing basis
… with a focus on particular charities at particular times…..
The possibilities are great & exciting….watch this [ ]!!
