March 3rd & 4th- As many are aware, we recently had our appeal at Crown Court Plymouth.
We didn't go in and argue the accusations brought against us, we know what we did and we did it for very good reason.
We had a 43 page skeleton argument based around (mainly) the coronavirus act and the legislation behind it, and where we stand under LAW.
We were told that the Crown Court is NOT a Crout of Law (!) So basically our argument couldn't be heard or argued on that day (or in that court!)
We need to take our case/argument higher, and we have every intention to do so, along with many others.
Based on this, their Guilty charge still remains, although our sentences were reduced with all costs slapped on Finla.
The future of Finla Coffee Limited remains uncertain. Either way, we will fight this case all the way with or without Finla.
We will do everything in our power to keep Finla going, not for ourselves but for our dedicated staff, the humbling support of our customers and for the mental health of so many. We are and have always been a Community base/hub for the people of Plympton and Plymouth, regardless of what some think.... Many know the truth, and it's the truth that keeps us going, along with the future of our next generation, if we continue allowing these people to do what they've been doing for so many years!
We have been asked by many beautiful souls, who are clearly devastated by the recent outcome if they can donate to support us.

Finla Coffee of 6 years in Plympton, Plymouth, Devon has been subjected to a campaign of harassment, intimidation and abuse by Plymouth City Council, Plymouth Live and a minority of hate-filled locals over the past 9 months, for allegedly allowing people to sit down in their coffee shop during the unlawful, tyrannical, nonsensical lockdown.
Recently on Wednesday 7th July 2021 the Council (and the court) decided to still hold the trial in Exeter – in full knowledge that none of the Directors could attend. They applied for an adjournment 3 times over the few weeks before the hearing and yet heard no response from either the court or council.
They were also denied having any witnesses, and from filing a defence statement. Then both Directors at the time were summons on 22ndApril – after the Council had confirmed in Court that we would not be sent a summons.
In that hearing the Deputy District Judge issued a total of £42,000 in fines, costs and victim surcharges – which is ridiculous, unlawful and may as well be £42 Million pounds.
Hence well-wishers have asked for Finla to set up a 'gofundme' page to be set up - So here it is!
The owners intend to fight this all the way; for the avoidance of any doubt none of the money will go to Finla Coffee Ltd or its directors.
The owners do not stand to benefit from this in any way (other than being on the receiving end of your kindness and generosity)
Please only give what you can afford and know that you are doing a great thing to protect our freedom, unite communities and support those in need.
The owners are very proud of the stance they have taken to prevent the erosion of freedom and our community.
Your help is greatly appreciated
