Cafe opening

A CATERING entrepreneur is gearing up to launch her new park cafe this weekend.

For Sharon Foster, of Birchwood Close in Thorne, hopes her new business venture at Thorne Memorial Park will boost community picnics, provide food and drink during musical events there and give walkers the perfect setting to relax.

It will be a double celebration for the mum-of-four’s official opening of the Thorne Park Cafeteria in South Parade on Saturday because that is also her 48th birthday!

She said: “I want to provide Thorne and the local area with nice, quality food at affordable prices. I want to offer a takeaway service and summer bistro evenings. I’ve had so much support, I can’t thank the people here enough.”

Everyone is invited to the open day from 11am. A variety of gifts and stalls will be on offer.
