So who knew..
Zenubian has been at 136 Hither Green Lane for four and a half months now..
During that time we've made great strides! Blessed to have the company of many great creatives and practitioners in our new space, and a warm welcome from the HG community was gratefully received.
Things do take a while to settle, and after all the developments and changes, I have been in preparation for the Christmas season. Life has a habit of throwing curve balls and lessons and I've had a few since the re-opening.. The worst feeling in the world is feeling like you may have made a mistake.
What made me feel this way? Another break-in !
After the last one in February at the Ladywell premises, this one has made me feel quite unsafe. Two within a year can make a dent in your sense of safety. I now have to get practical and find a solution. The only real one is getting shutters for the shop, but for these massive windows, they are very expensive. Prior to opening at Hither Green, I had to choose between stock and shutters. Such are the difficulties of a sole trader..I chose stock. Hoping to have the opportunity to build up. No such luck!
So here it is.. a somewhat embarrassed request for help...
I know things are tough for everyone right now..but if you feel to and are able to, I would deeply appreciate any donation possible to get me on the road to security.
I am planning a couple of events to help this mission for shutters, so watch this space!
