Coffee shop will give residents a ‘ community hub’ under new plans
A SOCIAL enterprise hopes that its plans to open a cafe in Solihull will provide residents with a long- awaited “community hub”.
Changes UK is seeking a change of use to a coffee shop at 242 Lyndon Road, with Small Changes, the children’s boutique it currently runs at the premises, to move next door.
The scheme would also see the creation of community rooms on the first floor, available for hire, and a specially- designed sensory room, for children and adults with conditions such as autism. Both units would be extended to the rear.
Subject to council planning permission, it is intended to complete the project early next year.
Steve Dixon, chief executive of Changes UK, said venture, which Mr Dixon has said will serve baristastyle coffee.
The premises will be staffed by a mixture of paid staff and volunteers.
Changes UK was set up to assist those battling addiction and has been helping deliver support services in the borough for more than a decade, working alongside the Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust.
In recent weeks the community interest company ( CIC) has paid tribute to local people for their help, following a break- in at the Lyndon Road chari- ty shop on October 31. Thieves made off with a till and donations, but the premises quickly reopened to be ready for the Christmas rush.
The planning application for Changes Coffee is expected to be considered by Solihull planners in the coming weeks. . CELEBS do it, Instagrammers do it, makeup artists do it, and there’s thousands of YouTube tutorials showing us how to do it.
There’s really no escaping ‘ contouring’ to accentuate cheekbones and create a picture- perfect face.
But did you know you can contour your hair?
Contouring your face can change your skin tone, sculpt your face shape and enhance your features and colouring your hair can do all of that too.
Colour for your hair isn’t just about shade choice, but about placement of colour and how it can enhance the shape of your hair cut.
If one of your concerns is flat hair with the power of contouring, you can give the illusion of structure and form and with clever light and shadow colour placement we can make your hair look like it has more volume. At Aesthetics we’ve always been proud of our colour service ( and have won numerous awards to prove our expertise too) offering bespoke colours, shades and techniques to suit our customers.
To us, hair colour is simply makeup for the hair and with the power of contouring with hair colour, we can create definition, give the illusion of a different face shape and accentuate features you’d like to focus on, for example long narrow faces highlighting hair at the side can make it appear a little wider, while darker pieces on top and underneath can soften the length of the face.
To find out what we can do for your hair book a consultation with one of our colour technicians by calling the salon on 0121 707 8866.
