Help us repair the damages

Many of you beautiful people recommended that we go down this route, and to be honest we were overwhelmed and humbled by the level of support that you have shown us in this matter and over the last 18 months.

Below is the original post we shared.

Right loves, we are writing to you today as George, Meth and Joe, and wanted to re-address a particular situation.

So, you may have most likely noticed that our toilets have been less than functional recently. They were never glorious, but lately we have been getting by on fixes. However, this past weekend we had most of the fixtures completely destroyed during the course of one night. On top of that our office computer, and all the DJ equipment for downstairs, was destroyed. We are borrowing to get by this weekend, but we ask that you bear with us over the next week or so, we are doing everything with in our power to fix this as quickly as possible. The strains of owning an independent business means responsibility lies with us and not a brewery or big business with the infrastructure to respond to these situations swiftly.

We opened this place ourselves drawing from our own money and savings. We have invested our entire lives into the bar for the last 18 months and plan to do so as long as we can. Currently all three of us are going through personal issues that are also taking their toll, and our George's health has been an ongoing battle that of late is becoming more and more difficult for him and our entire family to cope with. As a result we do not have the physical or financial resources to give out in order to get this sorted immediately and we need to ask for help.

The three of us are a bit battered and bruised right now but we are as determined as ever to keep this place going and fear not we will fix you up some glorious tinkle palaces. All we can do is apologise for the time being and thank you for your continuous support.
