A POP-UP eco cafe is bringing sustainable, healthy vegetarian food to the people of Abingdon.

The Blue Sky Eco Cafe was created by Susan Hammersley in June last year and now serves between 30 and 40 lunches at each monthly session.

She said, after retiring from teaching, she was interested in foods that had health benefits, adding: "Connected with that was a concern for the environment which I was continually hearing about on the media."

Ms Hammersley got started by selling vegetarian dishes at a monthly country market but after a year decided it was time to grow.

Long Furlong Community Centre committee helped her take the next step by renting its kitchen and hall for six months at half rent.

Each pop-up session is held on the first Tuesday of the month between 12pm and 2pm, with volunteers were joined at the most recent session by Abingdon mayor Margaret Crick.

Ms Hammersley said she is keen to get more people involved, saying: "I have a very small gang of three or four who turn up regularly and I phone friends and neighbours to help out in other ways each month.

"We would love to have more volunteers on the team, who share our values"
