A much-loved community café marks a major milestone next month as it celebrates a decade serving people throughout Wetherby and its surrounding villages.
Wetherby in Support of the Elderly (WiSE) originally set up its WiSE Owl Café as a social hub for older residents- but the facility has since developed into a thriving café offering a safe space to meet for people of all ages three days a week.
To mark its 10 years of operation, the café at Boston Spa Village Hall will be offering a free glass of fizz and a piece of cake when it opens its doors from Tuesday 10 to Thursday 12 January.
Christine, who runs the café with Jane, said: “A huge thank you must also go to staff at Boston Spa Village Hall, who have always totally supported and helped us with the cafe. Our 10 year anniversary is a massive achievement from all involved and we are so proud to have reached that milestone
“We still pride ourselves in our fresh, made to order menu using local suppliers where possible. Many of our wonderful hard working volunteers and bakers are still with us which shows how much the café is loved.”
WISE is a registered charity organisation part funded by Leeds City Council (LCC). Its aim is to improve quality of life for the over 60s by providing community based activities, information, help and support. It was recently given the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, which is equivalent to an MBE.
