A NEW cafe has opened in Malvern this week at Malvern St James School's sports and fitness centre.

The Pavilion Cafe at the centre on Barnards Green Road was officially opened by the headmistress Olivera Raraty.

Open to Malvern residents and visitors, the cafe overlooks the school’s sports pitches and with plenty of space to sit inside, there’s also an outdoor seating area.

Mrs Raraty said: "It’s wonderful to have this new cafe. The team behind it has worked so hard in getting it open and we hope everyone in the area will come and support it."

Anita Fisher, the school's head of catering, said: “We’re all so excited about this new venture. We’re looking forward to welcoming lots of people from the local community and sharing our new venue with them.”
