BUSINESSWOMAN Sharon Foster could not have asked for a better launch of her new park cafe.
For on March 19, her 48th birthday, the catering entrepreneur opened the Thorne Park Cafeteria in Thorne Memorial Park.
Sharon, of Birchwood Close, had face-painting and other activities during the launch in South Parade.
Councillors Karen Redmile and Ian Harrison were also on hand to help her open the cafe.
She would like to thank everyone who helped her with her new business venture.
She said: “The first day went really well. “I have lots of ideas and plans to make it work and serve the community well, I’m so pleased with the support I’ve had.”
