Congars Cafe in Broad Street is looking to offer more to the community as trading starts to return to normal after the past two years.
The cafe can be used as a meeting place in the evenings for groups, especially art or books groups. It could also be used as a lunch venue for weekly or monthly group meetings, if that is of interest.
A third possible use would be to provide catering of cold finger buffets for events such as wakes or christening parties. This can either take place at the cafe outside opening times or at other local venues.
“We are very open to any ideas people have about services we can offer to help not only residents of Congresbury but surrounding areas,” says Sonya Stocker who is happy to discuss plans with anyone interested. Sonya can be contacted at the cafe or email email@example.com
