A cafe has found a home almost a year after being booted out of an arts centre after a campaign supported by Suggs from Madness and Keith Brymer Jones from the Great Pottery Throw Down.
The Revival Cafe, which supports people with mental health issues, has been homeless ever since being booted out of the Horsebridge Arts Centre, where bosses said it was "no longer suitable" and the space was needed for other uses.
But now the charity, which is run by Mind in Bexley and East Kent, will be back in business with a new cafe in the former Woolley's Menswear shop in the High Street.
Deborah Haylett, who is business and development manager for the cafe, says she is delighted the charity is buying the premises and investing in its future.
"This opportunity allows Revival to create a vibrant cafe and wellbeing hub in the heart of the town," she said.
"The building meets the criteria we need to expand and develop our initiatives. It's a real investment in the community and will allow us to grow alongside the needs of the town and its people, now and for generations to come."
When the Revival cafe was first threatened with eviction, a high profile campaign was launched to save it which had celebrity supporters, including Suggs and Mr Jones who is a judge on the Channel 4 pottery competition, but Horsebridge bosses would not budge on their plans.
Almost10 staff lost their jobs when the business was forced to move out with nowhere to go.
Ms Haylett says the new cafe represents a huge investment by the charity as the building also needs renovations and new facilities worth £100,000.
"It needs massive input in money and energy so it's a bit daunting but also exciting because we have the opportunity to create something very special for the wellbeing of people in Whitstable," she said.
"The aim is not only to have a cafe but also a workshop area and training room downstairs and rooms upstairs for mental health support work.
"We want to create something that is the full experience with creative wellbeing and perhaps for other practitioners to use the space as well."
Ms Haylett says the announcement of the new cafe has prompted hundreds of messages of support on social media and she hopes more people will sign up to be £10-a-year sponsors of Revival
"We have about 280 so far but would love to get to 1,000 and we will also be launching a crowdfunder and appealing to local businesses for sponsorship too," she said.
"There's a massive amount of work to be done and we will need to recruit a manager who is very experienced in multi-use buildings as well as new staff.
"But if all the renovations go to plan, we hope to open in May."
