Victoria Park Café

Located in Victoria Park, Frome, the café offers a variety of delicious food and drinks for everyone to enjoy. They are passionate about building a strong community and fostering connections through great cakes and conversation.

They now have a shelter up with plenty of seating, a loose play pod, a couple of picnic tables to play chess on and dog ice cream!

They hope to do a big renovation of the space in January 2024 to put in more commercial grade cabinets and flooring, so that they can do more works skills training with those that traditionally find the pathway into work challenging.

Their vision for the community café is to create a warm and welcoming space where people from all walks of life can come together, engage in meaningful conversations, and build strong connections with one another. 

The café will be a place where everyone feels valued and included, regardless of their background, beliefs or social status. They strive to create an inclusive and equitable community space, where everyone is welcome and treated with respect. 

They also aim to source local and sustainable ingredients, as well as providing community education and events. The goal is to not just serve food, but to serve a sense of community and belonging.

The café also includes a strong connection to nature. They believe that being surrounded by greenery and natural elements can have a positive impact on both physical and mental well-being.

Victoria Park Café plan to incorporate nature into the café design, such as selling plants and herbs, outdoor covered seating and planters. Additionally, they want to involve the community in nature based initiatives and events in collaboration with other local organisations, whether that’s green talking cafes, composting workshops, gardening classes, or laps round the park with a cake at the end of it.
