Salisbury Pride UK
IMPORTANT COMMUNITY NOTICE
It brings us great sadness and anger that today (08/02/2023) we have been given notice to terminate our Licence on 17th February 2023 ,from Elite Law Solicitors acting on behalf of their client D`Ouro Properties Limited. Salisbury Pride UK CIC has been asked to be vacated by the above date with all our contents removed from the property.
This has all escalated from a recent visit from Wiltshire Council enforcement team stating the type of business class the premises is registered under and that we are not following the rules as trading as a “Restaurant”. We are now seeking legal advice.
Progress Café & Bar is a trading name under Salisbury Pride UK CIC. Since the first day of opening we have always served food, played recorded music in which we are licensed to by PRS and serve alcoholic beverages which we also are licensed to do.
Since our takeover in 2019, the team at Salisbury Pride UK CIC have worked tirelessly with a dedicated team of volunteers to promote equality and diversity in our historic city. We are proud to say that we have engaged with some incredible networking groups such as; LGBTQ Youth Network in partnership with Salisbury City Council, Ukraine Hub, Salisbury LGBTQ Communities, Transgender groups in Salisbury and much more!
We are asking members of the community to come forward by sending us supporting letters to evidence that Progress is a warm and welcoming inclusive safe space for everyone and that we should remain. Letters can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
A donation page has been created to help support our CIC to pay outstanding bills. www.salisburyprideuk.org/donate
We hope to remain and be back in Salisbury and to continue to deliver our community project. Follow us on our socials for the latest @progresscafebar!
