Everyone is welcome to the café to chat with OBE Advisors, who will be on hand to explain how its free service helps and advises small business owners.
Owners of the café, Lisa and Dee, have opened their doors for event to tell people how the OBE enabled them to fulfil their own ambition to become a successful community-based business.

Cllr Lynn Lloyd, local district councillor for Chinnor, said, “I’m really pleased that OBE are coming to Chinnor to hold a business networking event. The café only opened earlier this year and is a fitting example of how a local business can put the community at the heart of what they do.”
Martin Herbert from OBE said: “Everyone I’ve met since becoming an advisor has had a unique proposition – I’m constantly amazed by the diversity of ideas. One thing they all have in common is the desire to see their ideas come to fruition and I am delighted to have helped some fulfil their ambitions. I am especially proud to have helped Lisa and Dee, who have been so well organised, focused and determined, and they are such lovely people too.”
