Not-for-profit Community Café in Shorts Road, Fair Oak coming soon. We need your help!

With the support of the Parish Council, we are looking to set up a not-for-profit Community café on Shorts Rd (on the site of the old scout hut), Fair Oak and are seeking to involve local people in how this could be developed.  We are asking local people what you would like to see in terms of the building style and when you might use the café.

The Community Café will be for the benefit of the whole community.  It’s guiding aims are to provide quality affordable food and drink together with a safe, healthy and friendly space that all can access and enjoy.  It will also aim to provide work experience, employment, and training opportunities for those with additional learning needs as well as volunteering opportunities for residents. It also intends to partner with other organisations/groups to increase opportunities for community engagement in other initiatives such as a repair café/wellbeing hub.
