Last updated at 12:58, Friday, 18 October 2013
A Seaton woman plans to open a cafe in the village she loves.
Mum-of-three Nichola Rush, 37, of Peatfield Road, hopes to open Mama Rush’s Cafe on Main Road, Seaton, replacing the Top to Toe beauty salon, which has moved to Fisher Street in Workington.
If planning permission is granted, she hopes to open the 36-seater cafe by January.
Mrs Rush, who has lived in the village for 12 years, used to work as a kitchen assistant at Branthwaite Care Home.
She has been nicknamed Mama Rush by her husband Andy and friends because of her love of cooking.
She said: “Seaton is a lovely place and I hope everyone will support the cafe.
“The support I am getting from people in the street is unbelievable. People are saying it’s going to be great.
“I am always cooking. It’s where I am happy.
“I have always wanted to open my own cafe and to have it in Seaton.”
Mrs Rush initially plans to hire a part-time member of staff and the cafe would be open from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
The building’s owner, Robert Hutton, of Low Seaton, has lodged plans with Allerdale council on Mrs Rush’s behalf.
