Manhattan Cakes in London Road, Widley is to close down and be turned into a funeral parlour.
The Manhattan Cakes shop is a family run business, which makes cakes along with sandwiches and rolls. It also sells chocolate bars, crisps and fruit along with hot and cold drinks.
Residents are outraged about this decision, as the cake business is used for special occasions e.g. wedding and birthday, which are happy events. To see it get turned into a funeral parlour will see the place go from organising happy events to coping with sad events.
