We are really pleased to announce that we are in the process of building a fantastic new modern community café right opposite the River Centre! The vision for the café is to outreach to the community in particular younger people.
We hope to open it from 7am to catch the traffic of people going to work or the station that may fancy a coffee on their way, and then maybe some mums and toddlers throughout the day, then from 3.30 onwards it will be all about the youth – lights dimmed, music a little louder and smoothies at the ready!
We really want it to be a social place where the community and youth will feel comfortable and at home and just a place for them to “be”. We are still in the planning stages even though the roof is on and the walls are going up extremely quickly..!!
The café has two floors, the ground floor will be the café itself and then the first floor will be another venue facility. We would love for this to be used by the community for things like small meetings, dance classes, regular clubs or socials/parties so keep that in mind when you are thinking of holding any smaller events in Tonbridge.
We are hoping for the Café to be up and running by the end of this year, but we are missing one vital thing… a name! So if you have any ideas of a name for the café please let us know as we want it to be the communities, which means we want the community involved in it’s making – we would really love to hear from you about any ideas you may have about the running of the café, the name or the room upstairs – get involved!
