A NEW internet cafe in Sutton Bridge is being planned as part of the town’s community centre thanks to telecomms provider TalkTalk which is helping to fund the technology and furniture needed for the cafe.
Officially opened in December last year, the Curlew Centre boasts facilities for the area including a packed diary of events, room hire opportunities, a library and a police room where the neighbouring policing team can hold community engagement events. The internet cafe is part of the further development plans in the area being funded by the Sutton Bridge development fund.
Peter Clery, chairman of the Community Centre Fund, said: “We think an internet cafe is a vital component of the Curlew Centre being developed in Sutton Bridge and are delighted with the donation from TalkTalk.
“The money will be a big help in kitting out the centre which lots of people in the community will benefit from.”
Tristia Clarke, commercial director at TalkTalk said: “Investing in the local area allows us to bring our great value offers to even more families in Sutton Bridge and we are proud to be supporting the fantastic work being done at the Curlew Centre in Sutton Bridge. A new internet cafe will allow local people to get online whenever they want.”
