A PAGHAM cafe is opening all year round after a refurbishment.
Pagham Beach Cafe used to serve its meals and hot and cold drinks in the summer only.
But its owner, Maria Griggs, has expanded the Beach Road operation close to the seafront to enable her to attract customers throughout the year.
She was congratulated by Bognor Regis and Littlehampton MP, Nick Gibb, on her enterprise in undergoing the significant upgrade and refurbishment.
He visited her business last Friday to see the results of her investment.
He said: “Pagham Beach Cafe is a well-known and well-loved local cafe that serves visitors as well as local residents.
“With all the difficulties we have had with the beach in recent years, it is good that a local business that depends on tourism and visitors is doing well.”
The cafe has been in the Griggs family for 42 years.
It was established by Maria’s father, Joe, and the business’s signature burger, the ‘Joe Burger’, is named after him.
