A VOLUNTEER-run cafe has opened in a community hub.

 

Drinks, scones and teacakes are being served at The Hive, on Station Road, in Ushaw Moor, near Durham, after the coffee shop was officially opened by social entrepreneur Andrea Watts today (Thursday, October 17).

 

The cafe was set up to meet an identified need for space for the community to meet, particularly young people.

 

It is hoped it will become a training centre for village youngsters, who will get work experience in the cafe.

 

The facility will be run by the Enterprise Development and Education Network (Eden). Eden leader Anne-Marie Booth said: “The opening went really well. We had a near-constant flow of people all day and two young people volunteered to help.”

 

The cafe, decorated with pictures of the local area, will be open Wednesday to Friday 10am to 4pm and Saturday 10am to 2pm.
