A cafe ….with soul

Steve at The Red Velvet Lounge has opened his doors and his heart and his purse, inviting you, us, anyone to get together for free soup and bread on Tuesday nights when there’s not much else open in Cygnet. Steve, his wife Cate and their children are all there, helping out and it is delightful.

imageI walked there last evening in the brisk, winter twilight, past all the houses in my street and wondered why the people were not all out walking to Steve’s. When I arrived, there was already quite a lot of chatter and in the window seat area a duet were singing. Instantly I felt welcome, relaxed and grateful to have landed in this wonderful place, at the bottom of Australia.

Next Tuesday, August 14th, 5.30pm at the RVL we are having our SeedSaveUs monthly get together, to share seeds, plants and produce. Do come along, sit by the fire, have some fabulous soup and talk about sowing tomatoes and other things.

Hope to see you there!

Thanks Steve!

What wonderful people to have in your community. An invitation written with such beautiful sentiment - makes me want to get on a boat just to visit the Red Velvet Lounge..
