Mells community cafe opens doors

A new community cafe in Somerset has opened its doors following a three-year project.

The cafe in Mells, near Frome, was officially opened by TV chef Mary Berry on Saturday.

Mells Village Shop was awarded a £48,000 grant to enable it to build the adjoining coffee shop.

It is hoped the cafe will provide a social hub for Mells and the surrounding villages and encourage visitors and tourists into the area.

The cash came from the Rural Development Programme for England Community and Social Enterprise Fund.
