A new community café opened its doors in Ely for the first time on polling day.

The Larkfield Centre, in High Barns, has been transformed and welcomed residents for tea, coffee and all manner of cakes and treats last Thursday.

The centre also served as a polling station for the General Election and organisers attracted plenty of peckish voters in for a look around.

In the weeks ahead, the community café will be open to the public on a more regular basis.

Also launching at Larkfield on May 15 is a nightclub for people with learning disabilities and their families. A disco and bar will be open from 7-10pm. Tickets are £5.
