The owner of a former mid Suffolk burger restaurant which closed in October is opening a new community café. 

Marc Rogers had to close The Shack in Stowmarket after only being open for four months. 

He said: "Unfortunately The Shack is closing due to lack of footfall, expensive overheads and restrictions on the type of food we were allowed to serve."

In a post on Facebook, Mr Rogers announced that he will be opening a new café on January 4 in Needham Market. 

"It's with a huge amount of excitement I'm pleased to announce The Angel Community Café will officially open at the community centre," said Mr Rogers. 

"I can't wait to be back serving Needham Market and really want to become another great reason for people to use the community centre."

The café will serve homecooked breakfast and lunches as well as coffee and cake. 

It will be open from Monday to Friday from 8.30am until 2.30pm.
