Cafe and mu­sic store plan for empty shop

Bangor Mail - - News -

A FOR­MER clothes shop could be turned into a cafe and mu­sic store if approved by coun­cil plan­ners.

Fol­low­ing the clo­sure of the “Take 4” clothes shop, the unit on Llangefni High Street is cur­rently empty.

But plans have now been sub­mit­ted that would see the shop trans­formed into a new ven­ture com­bin­ing both a cafe and mu­sic shop.

The pro­pos­als, sub­mit­ted by qual­i­fied mu­si­cian Pat Lee and di­eti­cian Liz Pryde, would see a small cafe with seat­ing for 15 peo­ple.

Mean­while, the mu­sic shop would pro­vide a bilin­gual ser­vice sell­ing new and sec­ond hand in­stru­ments as well as of­fer­ing mu­sic tu­ition.

The de­sign and ac­cess state­ment, ac­com­pa­ny­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion, notes that the in­ten­tion is to pro­vide “a hub for the lo­cal com­mu­nity with an in­ter­est in mu­sic” and con­nect­ing with lo­cal schools to sup­port mu­sic tu­ition and pro­vide af­ford­able in­stru­ments to all.

“She (Liz) has a pas­sion for cook­ing and ca­ter­ing for those with food in­tol­er­ances,” it goes on to note.

“She is ex­cited about this op­por­tu­nity to of­fer tai­lored di­ets to the lo­cal com­mu­nity, while rais­ing aware­ness of food sus­tain­abil­ity and healthy eat­ing.

“He (Pat) re­turned home to An­gle­sey re­cently fol­low­ing four years teach­ing and re­pair­ing in­stru­ments at a mu­sic academy in London, where he also gained ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing in a mu­sic shop.

“He feels im­mensely for­tu­nate to have dis­cov­ered mu­sic and is keen to share this by pro­vid­ing qual­ity mu­sic tu­ition and sup­ply­ing ap­pro­pri­ate in­stru­ments to the lo­cal com­mu­nity around Llangefni.”
