New coffee shop, ‘Broom Wagon’ on Cross Street, was officially opened by Seaton town mayor, Gaynor Sedgwick and town crier David Craner this week. Owner Glenn Moorley said: “I want to thank the mayor and everyone who came today to support us; I really appreciate it. “I want to offer something different and to create a place for people to come and have a chat and feel comfortable in a good atmosphere. I think Broom Wagon offers that.” Mayor Gaynor Sedgwick added: “I am delighted to be here to open this unique and special coffee shop and thank Glenn for inviting me and for recognising the potential of Seaton and investing in it.” The new shop offers speciality coffee and teas with the coffee being sourced and roasted locally at the Coffee Factory in Seaton. Glenn Morley, an enthusiastic cyclist, found the name ‘Broom Wagon’ as it is a cycling term for the van at the back of the race picking up the stragglers and keeping them safe. He is also a trustee of the ‘Male Cancer Awareness Campaign’ and will use the coffee shop to promote the work of the charity and will be looking to present informal ‘awareness’ sessions to endorse NearNaked Man one of the charity’s cycling challenges to help combat prostate cancer.
