Reach Learning Disability to open café on Balderton Playing Field in the summer
A new café is set to open on Balderton Playing Field this summer, serving drinks, light lunches and afternoon teas on both weekdays and weekends.
Local charity Reach Learning Disability will be running the café to support its work with adults with learning disabilities in the Newark, Mansfield and Southwell areas.
Alison Hall, operations director at Reach, said: “Balderton is at the heart of the community we serve, so we are looking forward to welcoming local residents with great quality coffee and hot, freshly-prepared food.
“The café will also help support our work with adults with learning disabilities and offer them somewhere to socialise and volunteer.”
The former Arts Café is owned by Balderton Parish Council and looks out on to the playing field so offers a great place to meet with friends and family.
Lydia Hurst, the chairman of Balderton Parish Council, said “I’m delighted that Reach Learning Disability has decided to run the café, and we look forward to working with their team as they make preparations to open in a few months’ time.”
Reach will be recruiting staff and volunteers to help run the café, support people with learning disabilities and organise events. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to help.
Reach Learning Disability supports more than 200 people through day centre provision and a domiciliary care support service.
