“It will complement the homestore and foodbank, while providing a place for everyone to use, and carers to bring loved ones. Our staff all have awareness of dementia and the skills to make people feel welcome, whilst adhering to social distancing rules.

“Local supermarkets have also donated food which we will be selling for a small donation, as part of the project.”

The cafe is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 9:30am and 2:30pm.
