The International Cafe at the YM in Montrose is to welcome two Tayside Division police officers this Sunday.

Coffee, Chat and Culture is the order of the day at the International Cafe. The cafe takes place every Sunday between 10.30 - 12.30pm with participants ranging from four to 70 years of age.

Established to support integration within the Community while decreasing feelings of isolation, Angus Council - Communities Team have developed a welcoming environment for learners to practice/expand communicative English with support from peers and staff. With learners from Poland, Mexico, Columbia, Romania, Estonia, Liberia and Latvia the International Cafe is a multi-national hub.

Activities have included art and craft, pool, board games and a variety of cooking opportunities. On the run up to Christmas these activities will continue. Scottish Dancing will also be on the menu as visitors practice in preparation for a Christmas Ceilidh.

This Sunday (November 6) Goska Kidd - the Tayside Division Polish liaison officer - and local Community Police Officer Ally Hutchison will be on hand to answer any questions and queries visitors may have.

Communities worker Rachel McCulloch is the driving force behind the Montrose International Cafe. Rachel commented: “A warm welcome is extended to all nationalities. Drop by for a coffee and a chat and join in on the activities.”
