A NEW coffee shop will open in Bolton next week.

Bridge Coffee promises a ‘high quality’ experience beyond merely serving up a drink to keep customers going.

The shop will open in Bradford Street, next to The Bridge Church, on Tuesday, August 22.

Its hours will be 7.30am to 4pm.

Becki Melia, shop manager, said: "Bridge Coffee is the sort of place where you can come to relax and enjoy a latte, cappuccino or a host of other quality drinks with friends. You can even get a light snack. With the free Wi-Fi, we’re also expecting to be a popular choice for informal business meetings or a chat with colleagues.

"Of course, you could just get a quick drink to take out.

"We’re right next to The Bridge Church, on Bradford Street. It’s a great location. There’s plenty of free parking, so you can also just pop in, grab a drink and go.

Richard Cooke, Senior Minister at The Bridge Church, said: "We want The Bridge Church to be at the heart of the local community.

"Bridge Coffee will help us achieve this. We’ve designed it to have a warm and friendly atmosphere – a place where everyone’s welcome."
