A CAFE in Chineham has closed for good, much to the disappointment of customers.

The cafe in the M&S Simply Food store in Chineham Shopping Centre closed on Sunday, November 26.

As previously reported, an M&S spokesperson confirmed the closure, with the upstairs area of the store to be turned into additional storage to help make the chain's click-and-collect service 'even quicker and easier for customers'.

Tracy, an employee at the cafe, worked there since its opening in March 2012 and is devastated to see it go. She, along with colleague Grace, who worked at the cafe for three and a half years, was saddened by the closure.

The cafe received an outpour of support from the community after the announcement, with messages from customers echoing how much they would miss the cafe, with one message thanking the staff for their hospitality over the years. 

The spokesperson confirmed that the Chineham branch would be the only cafe in the area to close, with Festival Place now serving as the closest M&S cafe to customers.
