Having finally seen his tenancy at the Walpole Park kiosk come to an end, Spencer’s Cafe owner Alan Dillon has been forced to move on from his long-standing business. Despite having served the local community in the surrounding area for the previous decade, creating a beloved social hub around his cafe in the process, Alan was unable to successfully fend off competition in the Pitzhanger Manor Trust’s tendering process.
However, neither Alan nor many of his passionate supporters have been willing to accept this decision without doing some background reading and digging. This curious, often bordering on suspicious, attitude has seemingly been solidified by various emails and pieces found over social media that just don’t seem to add up. Moreover, much of this seems to be at odds with information the Trust has shared in regards to the tendering process.
Alongside Rosalind Adler, who has acted as Alan’s unofficial spokesperson and campaign manager, we discuss many of these pertinent points in light of what for many has already felt like an injustice for the man at the centre of all of this. We touch upon how Alan feels his business has been treated by the Trust, the aforesaid tendering process, and the decision to pursue legal action.
