An opportunity to run a café for people visiting a new day service and library in Seaford is being offered by East Sussex County Council.

The council is calling for people to come forward with their proposals for running the café as a business.

The £6m development in Seaford town centre will include a day care service, library and supported living flats for vulnerable adults.

The café, expected to open later this year, will offer refreshments available for everyone visiting and using the new facilities.

The county council expects the café, which will need to be competitive and self-financing, to become a popular meeting point for the local community and clients.

The café will offer wi-fi and a large screen to keep people up to date with news and council information.

Lead member for adult social care Bill Bentley, said: “This is a very exciting venture which will give service users and visitors to the fantastic facility the opportunity to relax and socialise in the café.

“The café will add a new dimension to the services we will be offering and become a central meeting point for everyone visiting Warwick House.”

Lead member for community services cllr Chris Dowling added: “This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with this project and be part of something special in Seaford.

“The successful partner will be able to set up their business without the cost of purchasing a building or the large-scale equipment, which the county council will both buy and maintain.”
