“Can anybody inform me simply what sort of town we’re residing in when pets are enabled into a facility and kids are not?” she composed.
“Who in the world does this Bob Higginson believe he is? Would he prohibit handicapped individuals from entering his facilities? Or individuals of a specific race or colour of religious beliefs? I’ll wager my bottom dollar he would not; he ‘d be scared to death to do so.”
But Mr Higginson states the policy has actually been “hyperbolized”.
“I merely wished to develop a good peaceful zone where grown-ups might sit, unwind and delight in the peaceful environment,” he stated.
“There are plenty over other locations for individuals with kids to go.
“It’s not like I’ve released a ballistic rocket over Torbay.”
Mr Higginson stated he has actually gotten “a hundred messages of assistance” because the “unproven allegations” were published online.
He stated that with many valuable antiques on screen, he was “rather worried” about kids remaining in the cafe.
