The opening hours of the over 60s tea room in Thornbury are being extended.

Volunteers and customers have flocked back to the town hall since the refurbished tea room reopened in May.

And now it has been announced that it will be open five days a week from the beginning of October, from 10am-3pm.

“We are so grateful for the wonderful support that we have had so far,” said volunteer Sandra Doig.

“People have even volunteered to bake cakes for us so most days we can now offer slices of homemade cake for 50p for customers to enjoy with their tea or coffee.

“We are still hoping for even more volunteers so if anyone would like to find out more about working with us they can call me on 01454 418690."
