They stopped at 19:00 hours as the car park was required by the Working Men’s Club.  Mr Smith stated that the objector sold mainly pizzas and kebabs, whereas they sold more traditional Greek food, including a vegan option.  He stated that people were very positive about their food offer, and some travelled long distances to eat their food.  Mr Smith added that all their plates/bowls/cutlery, which included wooden forks, was biodegradable.  Mr Turvill added that no one else in the area sold food like theirs, and that they had received a lot of positive feedback from customers.  They were very active in the local area and worked closely with the Friends of Chapeltown Park.  They both lived locally and knew a lot of people in the area.
