Cafe Amor goes all out for birthday

AN ARBROATH community project cafe will celebrate its first birthday later this month.

Cafe Amor, 261 High Street is the friendly face of the Blessings Outreach programme, a Christian community group run by Marco and Melanie Agolini.

The cafe acts as a base for a number of projects, and in the first instance provides an opportunity for people from difficult backgrounds to acquire employable skills through work experience in the kitchen and front of house.

Cafe Amor has a very Continental feel with the shelves of second-hand books for sale and Marco has also in the last year put on a number of gigs, open mic and movie nights.

In our video Marco explains the special surprise he has lined up for their birthday celebrations kicking off on Tuesday, July 17.
