There were also stalls, craft activities and live music.

The creation of the café was led by WestRaven Big Local, a local group which has received a £1 million grant from the Big Lottery Fund to help make improvements in Ravensthorpe.

The café received £200,000 of funding and will serve affordable food and drink. It also includes a designated youth space with recording equipment, a wheelchair friendly training kitchen, and a community space. Mr Jackson officially opened the facility with Jean Ayres, inset.
