A brand new community cafÃ© in Southborough has moved another step closer to opening with the donation of a fitted kitchen from leading social housing maintenance and repairs specialist Mears Group.CafÃ© BLISS, the brainchild of the Better Living In Southborough Society, will combine an advice drop-in centre with a community kitchen that will serve healthy food and give cooking training to local residents. Paul Kemp, projects partnership manager at Mears Group said: "We heard about the cafÃ© from Bliss' chairperson when they first had the idea, and it seemed like such a fantastic idea we were happy to help - it is just the sort of community venture we are trying to get behind."CafÃ© BLISS will be equipped with consultation rooms to provide an advice surgery for pressing local issues, and a C-card registration point to provide young people with an alternative to clinics. The lease for the CafÃ© has been sponsored by the Town and Country Foundation, and supported by further fundraising initiatives.Elaine Lawrence, chairperson of BLISS, said: "The cafÃ© will be the focal hub for community life - we have already had so many people asking when it will be open. It will be a cafÃ© run by the community, for the community.""Mears have been behind the idea ever since I had it around two or three years ago," Elaine added. "The kitchen is a big thing, especially at a cafÃ©, so without Mears' help it would have been nonexistent - it is very expensive, so we really are very grateful." CafÃ© Bliss is located at 142 London Road, Southborough.
