Hard work by our many volunteers and Trustees had paid off. The interior and exterior of the building shone, freshly-painted, and flower planters outside brightened up the site. “Cafe open” sign along with a huge coffee cup and a cake hung on the railings.

The Launch benefited from generous donations of cake from local people. The cake table was full.

Children’s Centre, Todmorden, kindly provided a wealth of activities led by qualified workers. There was messy play, lego construction and to crown it all, face painting.
