An empty shop unit in the car park of a supermarket in Bamber Bridge has been transformed into a play cafe.


Tiny Teacups, the brainchild of Pete and Laura Jones, and has been open since January.

Standing empty for years the cafe, near to the Morrisons in Station Road, offers three different play areas for children in view of their youngsters.

38-year-old Pete said: “My wife is a former secondary school English teacher. The cafe is her brain child as she discovered during her maternity leave that there’s nowhere in Preston for parents, grandparents or carers to take young children to play safely while they enjoy a hot drink and cake.

“We decided to take the unit on and do it up and we cater for children aged up to five-years-old.

“We have three play areas, one for up to 12 months, the other for 12 months to three years and then a three to five years area.”
