The Bridge project, a service for people with learning disabilities, has opened a cafe at the Watsonian Pavilion in Cross Flatts Park.
The cafe is open three days a week: Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30am-2:30pm, serving tea and coffee, hot and cold sandwiches, snacks and light lunches.
The Bridge, part of Health For All, is based at Holbeck Community Centre on Old Elland Road. The cafe is a new venture for them and aims to give their members experience of the work environment.
It’s first week saw a lot of customers call in and some very positive comments.
Cross Flatts Park has seen pathways re-laid in recent weeks and the large platground is due to be refurbished and extended shortly. The addition of a cafe is another welcome addition to the park, which won a Platinum award at the 2017 RHS Yorkshire In Bloom awards.
