The Moka Pot of Dawley Bank only opened in January, just in time for the latest UK-wide lockdown.

It has managed to keep up a takeaway service and staff say they had been heartened by the support given them by people living nearby. As a gesture of thanks, it piled up 100 Easter eggs and gave them away to children on a first-come, first-served basis.

Owner Neil Paul said: “The day was a success, so many happy kids and their parents sending comments and sharing pics.

"It’s been a hard time to start a business, however since opening in January we’ve had so much support from the locals. Therefore we thought we’d give back.

"Also as the restrictions are starting to loosen it would be a good time for people to know who we are and where we are, so running this event we thought it would inject some positivity into the area, raise awareness about the Moka Pot, and also bring some smiles to children and their parents in the area."
