In 1992 Henry Counsel gave the Pavilion to the community for
the benefit of the community and making more use of it during
the day has been a long standing ambition.
LEBEs Community Café is part of that plan. LEBE
stands for Lympsham, Eastertown, Brent Knoll and East Brent
and whilst the café is primarily for local people, everyone
is welcome, including well-behaved dogs.
George Tuttiett, Lympsham Parish Councillor and the instigator
of LEBEs Community Café, said: "The café
will be a place where people can make new friends or catch up
with old ones or simply enjoy excellent coffee amd cakes and read
a newspaper. LEBEs community café is conveniently
next door to the Village Shop & post office and close to a
childrens play area."
"I am grateful to the Pavilion committee for their support
and delighted LEBEs Community Café is here. I am
sure many people will benefit from this venture and our community
spirit will make it a success."
