Community café in Britwell

The Britwell Centre now has a reopened café which offers training opportunities for disadvantaged and unemployed residents.

Amana’s Journey Café, at the council’s Britwell Centre in Wentworth Avenue, serves hot meals, snacks and sandwiches on weekdays from 9am-5pm.

The group which runs the café is a community group for women and children living in and around Britwell.

Siham Bouabbache (known locally as Cece) is voluntary chairperson of Amana’s Journey.

Cece said: “The group provides a place where women can socialise with others and learn and share new skills.

"Support available includes English, Arabic and French classes, advocacy sessions, help using technology, and summer holiday and homework clubs.

“We also organise a range of activities and events such as healthy living workshops, arts and crafts, flower arranging, jewellery making, cultural evenings and face painting.

“Please do come and try our café at the Britwell Centre and support the work of Amana’s Journey.

“The café at the Britwell Hub had been closed for a number of years. Now, with the help of the council, Amana’s Journey has got it up and running again to bring people together, build stronger communities and to promote healthy eating.

“The café is run by volunteers, providing training opportunities for disadvantaged and unemployed residents. As a social enterprise the money raised by the café goes towards supporting various community projects.”
