A CHARITY café aims to bring the community together after opening in Tillicoultry this month.

The Snowdrop Café, based in Tillicoultry Parish Church Hall, held its first session on Monday, June 6, welcoming everyone from the area to enjoy a brew and a blether.

Elaine Scott, the organiser of the café, said: "It has been such a difficult two years for everyone with the coronavirus pandemic, so it'll be lovely to get everyone communicating with each other again and to get the community under one roof.

"This is a cafe for the community, run by the community.

"It is a free service supported by donations from the local community and supported backing from Strathcarron Hospice.

"Morrisons in Alloa have made a very generous donation, so we are all stocked up with enough teabags for everyone."

The cafe is open every Monday from 1-3pm, with disabled access and toilets available in the church hall.

Elaine and her team of 10 volunteers are encouraging anyone who does not have access to transport to get in contact with the team.

She added: "We look forward to welcoming you all for a cuppa and a chat."
