A new community café has been set up in Failand to give villagers a chance to get to know their neighbours.
Martina Dodder held the first one on Sunday at the village hall in Ox House Lane.
She now wants to run a café every month and is looking for volunteers to help out.
She said: “I recently moved to the area and I feel I want to create a meeting place for neighbours to get to know one another – a place with a bit of community spirit.
“There isn’t a café nearby so setting one up in the village hall is ideal. The hall have agreed to let me have a go.
You may also want to watch:
“I would like the café to be run by the neighbours for the neighbours.
“It will be a place for locals to meet and have a chat over delicious food.
