STRETFORD and Urmston MP Kate Green and Gorse Hill councillor David Acton have cut the ribbon to officially open Gorse Hill’s first pop-up community café.

It is based at Gorse Hill Methodist Church and run entirely by volunteers - and customers decide for themselves what to pay.

Café Yes is looking for volunteers to staff the cafe, and is also asking musicians, artists and poets to get involved.

Any food donations will be gratefully received. Ms Green said: “I was delighted to be at the official opening of the café.

"It’s a fantastic idea and a great place for people to relax, enjoy cake and a coffee, or pop along for breakfast or lunch.

"I’d encourage people to visit, and if they can, donate some food or time to ensure it continues to thrive. It’s a great space for the community to come together.”
