Occasional sunny spells greeted the official opening of the Melksham Hub Cafe this morning with the rain holding off.

Chippenham MP (Member of Parliament) Michelle Donelan cut the ribbon to mark the occasion assisted by Richard Gamble, chairman of Wiltshire Council.

Interior of the cafe now has its own departure board (although it needs fitting to wall properly)

Police were there to offer free bike marking while for the children the chance to meet some lambs being hand reared

Thanks for that post, Bob ... good to see you for the first time in goodness-knows-how-long in person.   Far better pics than mine - some posted at which includes picture from the cafe in the park which also opened today.  Not competing with each other - reminded me of "A Tale of Two Cafes" which I recall was a book by Charles Dickens, and London Buses where there's nothing for half an hour then two come along together!
