So I thought I visit them, have a look and chat and also of course do all the relevant tests... I put the link for whoever is interested.

Very nice friendly people and they have a mobile unit as well (I accidentally observed them in action serving some hot drink to a lady on my way to the centre). Thank you  :)

If you go by car, be careful where you park: park at the road behind where there are CCTV. If you go by other means of transport in the evening, don't walk alone! The surrounding area is a bit dangerous...
Where pleasure takes me!
