A NEW internet café has been officially opened in a Suffolk town - with a little help from Ipswich Town FC.
Promising young Town player Curtley Williams, from Needham Market, and ex-player Simon Milton, launched the Needham Market Internet Café, in School Street, yesterday.
The café is a non-profit-making community project, so it is open on weekdays for people to use for free.
Tom Barker, who established the café, said: “We provide free computer access to all on a drop-in basis and we also have a growing selection of snacks and drinks.

“Our reason for existing is to improve the facilities in our community, to make technology available and accessible for the people of Needham Market.
“We are seeking volunteers for all areas of the organisation, including general cafe supervision, administration, book-keeping and fund-raising, technology courses and support and any other projects volunteers want to get involved in.”
