Today I (finally) managed to pop along to the new Comic Shop based in Crawley and meet one of the owners.
On arrival you are already made to feel welcome… the shop boasts a long open area of community space as well as, you guess it, comic’s!
I managed to have a catch up with them over a coffee and got a feel for what their goals are as well as what they want to do going forward…
Lots of plans are on the table but with the community spirit in mind (something we like here at Horsham Gamers).
One major area they really want to expand on is giving the local community a place to play, meet and interact, they already acknowledged that many others are doing this around the area and this is just another ‘spot’ for you to pop along, grab a coffee and play (great coffee by the way)!
Everyone has their reasons for doing something for the community, it might be business, community giveback, or just a hobby like us at HG, it’s great actually find another community (including the other ones we all know of) that want to give back and bring people together.
Hopefully some of the community and others will be popping over to say hello, share a game / comic or two and meet new people with this ever growing popularity.
