As part of the development of services to support young people in the Town and make the best use of the youth building known as The Place the Council is opening a new Café in the building for the Easter Holidays from Monday 10th April between 10.30 am and 3.00pm.

The Café will not only support teenagers using Carvers and the skatepark but also parents with young children using the adjoining play area.

In line with other youth provision at Carvers the cafe will be run by staff directly employed by and reporting to the Council.

Decisions on the operation of the café throughout the summer will be made before the end of the Easter period.

Councillor Andy Briers, Chairman of the Council’s Recreation Committee said that ‘as the Council becomes more involved with the provision of youth services and play facilities we must also provide better access to toilets and refreshments.

The Café will provide those facilities.  In addition to providing hot and cold drinks and ice creams there will be a breakfast and lite bites/lunch menu which will include healthy eating options.

We hope this development of services at Carvers will be welcomed by our young people and also parents with children using the Play Area’.
