Not planned for the Future
This was not on our plan for the future. We had created a beautiful family with 8 children and for us that was our greatest wealth, love, support and what made us connected.
Then somehow Cafe Contempo appeared on the radar. Our daughter Kirstin (alias Bissy) had suggested opening a cafe. Due to circumstances we were looking for a supportive way forward.
Unfortunately our start was far from positive. On display in our cafe is a story called the Maitland Report which outlines a part of our trecherous journey.
We are a small Family Business which is very community orientated and we have always worked towards the common good of our community and family.
It was tough, very tough and a heart breaking journey forward!
