Rotherham Council has welcomed the opening of a new café in the town centre as plans to transform the area continue to move forward.
Crossroads Care is inviting visitors to join them for a coffee and a chat at “The Corner” in All Saints Square.
The charity shop and café was officially opened by the Mayor of Rotherham, Councillor Jenny Andrews, this week and is full of information for unpaid carers as well as providing training and meeting room facilities.
Denise Lelliott, Cabinet Member for Jobs and the Local Economy, said: “This is a great addition to the town centre and will provide a comfortable place for carers and visitors to chat and enjoy a drink and cake as well as providing support for Crossroads Care.
“We’re determined to see Rotherham Town Centre thrive, not just survive. The café’s arrival will certainly contribute to the town centre’s transformation as a leisure destination as we move towards the development of Forge Island and the Masterplan. I wish Crossroads Care all the best of success in its new venture.”
Crossroads Care is a charity that supports unpaid carers across the borough and all funds raised through The Corner will go towards developing new support services in the town.
