Local concerns about keeping the cafe in St Andrews Park independent (reported in last month’s Bishopston Voice) has led to a petition: Save Fay’s St Andrew's Park Tea Garden.

Lead petitioner Simon Davis started the online petition on February 2 and already has nearly 1,000 signatures. If 3,500 people sign the petition the matter will be debated in a full council meeting.

The petition states “that Bristol City Council should allow our much loved Tea Garden in St Andrews Park, which has been in place since 2006, to continue”.

The Council is proposing to tender the site currently used by Fay and her Tea Garden which could lead to her service being replaced by another provider which could include a catering chain. 

The present cafe is seen as a great asset to the St Andrews Park community, provides good service, homemade food and is served on reusable china.

Simon Davis states: “It is more than just running a café or becoming another branch of a chain and we want the council to hear the strength of local feeling.”
