Café Amiti at La Nouvelle Maraitaine is due to re-open on Friday 20 July under new management following its recent closure.
Nour and Jill Sayed Ahmed are the new proprietors of the café at the extra-care development run by the Guernsey Housing Association (GHA) and bring with them a fresh menu and passion for community togetherness.
Café Amiti was temporarily closed earlier this year and the GHA has since been looking for new management to get the café up and running as soon as possible for residents.
“My husband Nour and I are excited to be partnering with the GHA to bring a community café to the residents at La Nouvelle Maraitaine and the wider public,” said Mrs Sayed Ahmed.
“We are passionate about quality home-cooked food and the power that sharing a meal has to bring people together – the name of the café itself means friendship and peace, so I hope we can create an atmosphere of community.”
GHA chief executive Steve Williams added: “We look forward to welcoming Nour and Jill to Café Amiti and are excited about their new menu and their plans to create a close-knit community feel at La Nouvelle Maraitaine.”
“Their journey from east to west brings a unique flavour to the café and its community. We appreciate it hasn’t been easy for some residents following the closure and would like to thank them for their patience while we found new management. We are confident in the direction that Nour and Jill will take the café moving forward.”
