New venture to open in old Silk Kite site

Thursday, 31st January 2019

FOLLOWING a recent article regarding regeneration in Tamworth and some wider rumours around new businesses planning to open in the Town Centre, we had a FaceTime conversation which we thought may be of interest to our readers.

We spoke to a local businessman and entrepreneur who we have heard rumblings regarding some possible goings on.

He asked to remain anonymous, which is understandable until he went public with this exciting news.

Unfortunately, for reasons of anonymity, we can not show the video of the conversation, but after some persuasion, he agreed that we could share a transcript of our chat:

TI:
Hey XXXXX, how are you?

XXXXX:
Very well thank you, good to hear from you.

TI:
We wondered if we could have a quick chat about regeneration in Tamworth and more particular about some whispers we have heard regarding yourself.

XXXXX:
HaHa … pray tell of what you have heard and I shall either confirm or deny those rumours… probably both HaHa

TI:
So we have received word that The Silk Kite that closed its doors in 2016 may be opening again sometime soon, do you have any comment regarding this?

XXXXX:
HaHa Well, I can neither confirm or deny those rumours (as it was FaceTime they did give a cheeky wink) but how about in the very near future Tamworth Informed get the exclusive on what may, or may not, be happening? (said as they laughed)

TI:
That would be great, we would love to know what’s not going on.

XXXXX:
Well as soon as I put pen to the papers that my solicitor gives me imminently, you will be the first to know … damn … I think I said too much then! Actually, I am happy to share with you the emoji that will define the campaign … ⚡️ … you can have that on me now haha

TI:
We look forward to hearing from you soon.

XXXXX:
This conversation did not happen hahaha.

So there you have, confirmation (sort of) that something big may be happening! We will, of course, bring you more information when we know it!

It has got us thinking though, what does the lightning emoji mean?
