St Mary’s Anglican Church in Lockington opened a new cafe for everyone in the community.

Minister Stuart Winn said the cafe was space where people could meet and have a chat.

‘‘The idea is to provide a place for people to come and enjoy reasonably priced coffee and cake with friends,’’ he said.

He said the cafe would be run by volunteers and the money made would go back to the running of the facility and the church.

‘‘We’ve had a very positive reaction in Lockington,’’ he said.

He said the volunteers put a huge effort into getting the cafe up and running which has paid off.

Friends Cafe will open Mondays from 9.15am to 3.15pm.
