    Coffee, cake, cocktails, brunch - and now art!

    A popular town centre cafe has generously given free wall space to a local art group.


    After an extensive refurbishment of Flavours on Moor Street in the heart of Ormskirk, its two business partners; Serkan Kaya and Aziz Sakakli, were looking for ways to make a difference to the local community.

    A chance meeting with members of OAK, a thriving local art group, led to them offering some wall space inside the premises at no charge for members to display their work.

    Commenting, Serkan Kaya told QLocal's Roger Blaxall: "This has been a family run cafe for a number of years and after an extensive make-over last year, we made a conscious decision to make it part of the community where groups could meet.

    "When we met up with members of OAK, we were only to pleased to offer them space within the cafe to show their work.


    Said David Bailey, (not THE David Bailey...) one of the artists showing a pair of his tapestries: "We are extremely grateful to Flavours to give our group some space to show our work to the public.

    And artist Rita Mitchell, who recently moved to Ormskirk from Nottingham where she published her own calendars and postcards, added: “It's great to be able to show my work and hope it encourages other people to join our band of creatives!

    "Art is good for the mind and a chance to get away from the humdrum of daily life”


    Commenting on future plans for Flavours, the businessmen revealed it would soon be opening for seven days a week with a change of name to “SOUL”, reflecting their intention to be at the heart of Ormskirk, with plans to open similar branches in nearby locations.

    Aziz added: "We are in negotiations with several organisations and hope to offer community groups and clubs a discount on meals at the cafe, and we plan to 'adopt' a charity and put some of our profits into supporting them."
