Before renovations began, the owners offered equipment from the basement that was no longer needed to locals.

The request, posted on Friday, read: "We have a load of bits and bobs that we have no more use for but would be a shame for it to go to landfill! Hoping some of this kit might have a second life somewhere.

"Everything must be gone by Sunday night as the skips arrive Monday morning. First come first served! Come along and take it away!"
