A new community café will open its doors in Ely for the first time on polling day.
The Larkfield Centre, in High Barns, has been transformed and will be welcoming residents for tea, coffee and all manner of cakes and treats on Thursday, from 8am until 7pm.
The centre also serves as a polling station for the General Election and organisers hope to attract plenty of peckish voters in for a look around.
If the opening event proves a success, the community café will then be open to the public on a more regular basis.
Amy Girling, from Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “This is a new and exciting venture for the building. Larkfield has been a stable of the Ely community in supporting learning disability services since 1984.

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.
