A FORMER village greengrocers is set to be converted into a 'community coffee shop' by a resident.

Stephanie Noble has applied for planning permission to open her new cafe in Benson near Wallingford, serving 'tea, coffee, cake and sandwiches'.

Mrs Noble, of Gravel Close, wants to open the business at 25 High Street, a former greengrocers.

She told South Oxfordshire District Council: "The coffee shop is for the local community so therefore is in the heart of the village so transport and highway impact will not be affected due to locals being able to walk to it."
