Welwyn Garden City coffee shop gets General Election fever
COFFEE drinkers in WGC have been indicating how they will vote on May 6 by taking part in a special Bean Poll.
Customers at Muffin Break in the Howard Centre have been placing a single coffee bean into a tube bearing the name of their party of choice.
Then, at the end of each week between now and the election, the beans will be counted and the results released.
The final results will be announced on May 5.
Store owner Keval Malde said: “We may not be as scientific or complicated as other polls, but we think we can get the biggest response as we get hundreds of coffee drinkers through our doors each week, so we believe the bean poll will give a good indication of how the town plans to vote.
