Jigsaws - a new Cafe with a twist opens on Seaside:

It was good to pop in and meet Kirstie and Ray this morning and hear all about their new cafe, Jigsaws, which recently opened at 74 Seaside.

The twist is that both of them have worked for many years with children with autism and learning difficulties and passionately believed their was a lack of a cafe / meeting place where people on the spectrum could come, feel secure whilst they meet their friends.

When Ray and Kirstie came to my office a few weeks ago to tell me all about it, this sounded a brilliant idea. As the Patron of Embrace, a fantastic local charity which supports parents and families whose children are on the autistic spectrum, I know how challenging it can be to find eateries where they feel properly welcomed and understood.

So all the very best Ray and Kirstie - your cafe and concept is a real labour of love. I wish you all the very, very best with it 👍👍

See the video clip below that I shot with them earlier today.

Have a good weekend folks and I hope to see you around town......
