Lydia Cooper is the namesake for Lydia’s cafe which is serving up meals, snack and drinks - including Lydia’s hot chocolate loaded with cream and marshmallows which is on the menu at Delaynies furniture store.

Terry Cooper, operations director, has recently launched the cafe and named it after his daughter.

The cafe launch is part of a total overhaul of the former Furniture Factory Outlet which he took over last year.

He said: “We wanted customers to be able to come in relax, have a browse, enjoy a drink or meal.
