CUBE in Barry opens cafe and venue for weddings & events

After helping the community during the Covid pandemic, family support non-profit CUBE (Community United Barry 4 Everyone) – which formed in 2020 – has opened a café and event venue on Barry’s Broad Street.

The Gallery offers a modern location for events – including weddings – and a separate café which aims to provide a community space to help tackle loneliness, an issue that has been intensified during the Covid pandemic.

Customers can pop in for a chat and a coffee or pay for a ‘suspended coffee’ for someone in need.

The new venue will raise money for CUBE’s charitable aims, allowing them to continue to help families and individuals living with or affected by mental health, grief and loss, domestic abuse, and addiction

CUBE has helped people throughout the coronavirus pandemic including a resident – known by the alias ‘Janet’ – who was struggling during lockdown with her child’s behaviour. Her child was screaming at and hitting her, saying that they hated her.

Janet said: “I am so thankful for the support I received from CUBE. Not only has my child had amazing support, but my home is happier and calmer.”

The venue on Broad Street in Barry will also become the home and workspace for CUBE who – up until now – had not has a base of operations.
