A district nurse has opened a new café and bistro in Brundall.
Sophie Hodgkinson, 36, started the business venture on the marina in a bid to give the community a place to eat, socialise and shop for gifts and clothing.
The new mum had the idea to open the café when on maternity leave with her 19-month-old William.
Now she and pilot husband John and business partner Jamie Podgers, both 32, are serving lunches by day and evening meal from Thursday to Saturday.
Mrs Hodgkinson, of West End Avenue, Brundall, said: “Being a new mum I thought Brundall needs somewhere where people like me can meet up with friends and socialise with others.
“A lot of people have said it’s just what Brundall needs and we have had people return already.”
