AS part of the continued improvements to The Hub, Lyme Regis Development Trust was pleased to accept a cheque from the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme for £1,000 towards a new community café.

The money was raised from the charge for plastic carrier bags, with shoppers voting for their favourite causes to receive donations.

Funding manager Chris Tipping said: “The money from the Tesco scheme means we are now in a position to launch the café, which has been on the wish list for some time. I will also shortly be announcing some exciting events as part of the build up to the official opening.”

The Hub manager Diane Earle added: “We have had some fantastic community support for this project, and I am pleased to say that the Woodroffe sixth form art students will also be supporting us with a display of their artwork in the café space, which we are incredibly excited about. This will be continually changing based on the students current art projects.

“Our current display is completed by Woodroffe students as part of their A-levels in graphics and photography. This features Roccoco ideas and illustrative graphics and are all personal responses to themes set by their teachers and make use of the digital and photographic resources that the school supplies.”
