A new coffee and cake shop, Charlie’s Café, has opened in the heart of Wardle.
Opening a café has been the lifelong ambition of owner Tracy Charlson, a former teaching assistant, who has lived in the village since she was a child. The coffee shop is named after her beloved cocker spaniel, Charlie, and is definitely dog-friendly with water bowls and treats for customers’ pooches.
Tracy said: “I have always thought Wardle needs somewhere where you can sit down for a coffee or tea and a bite to eat. There was nowhere in the village.
“I plucked up the courage and worked hard to get the place up and running. Local people have been fantastic and very supportive. We’re open seven days a week and are really busy. We also get a lot of walkers and cyclists heading for nearby Watergrove Reservoir.”
