Young mother Dawn Webster and Lisa Smith will use the Big Lottery fund money to set up Family Den Caf� in the St James Church healthy living centre. The caf� will operate as a social enterprise and host activities like a book and pen pal club, arts and crafts and a children's corner.
It is hoped it will officially open on January 4, but some Christmas events may be held in the caf�.
The �5,285 grant came from a �302,000 lottery handout for the eastern region, which also saw the Work Academy in Norwich receive �7,665 to deliver a programme of learning for young people including accredited courses in trade skills, ICT training, interview techniques and employment preparation.
