A FAIRTRADE café has been forced to close after a year of trading, as it did not receive enough customers.

The café, held weekly at the rooms in St John’s Church in The Square, Axbridge, closed on Tuesday - on the same day as its one year anniversary.

Organiser Sue Albone said: “A wonderful and willing band of volunteers have supported the continuance of this café, though we have not had as many customers we had hoped for.

“Therefore with regret we have made the decision to close.

“We would like to thank all of those who have supported the café and thank them for sharing their friendly banter with us over a welcome cuppa.”

Visitors to the café helped raise £200 for the Cheddar Valley Food Bank.
