A CAFE has been raided by burglars just weeks after opening.

Thieves struck the Button Tree Cafe, taking the contents of the till, totalling £100, as well as a mobile phone - a vital asset to allow customers to pay their bill by bank card.

Thieves smashed a side window to the cafe, in Tagwell Road, to gain entry when it was closed between Sunday and Monday last week.

Owner Hannah Bloor, 39, from Droitwich, said: “I’m disappointed and annoyed with what’s happened.

“It’s had a big impact on a small business like mine.

“When we operated on the High Street at our previous location nothing like this happened to us and the previous cafe owners here at the Tagwell Road location operated without being broken into as far as I know.”

“I’m not going to get these criminals get me down and we were back up and running on Monday.

“Surely someone must’ve have spotted something?”

The family-friendly cafe serves a variety of hot and cold beverages, afternoon teas,light lunches and homemade cakes.

Customer Nicola Lewis, 42, said: “It’s disgusting and outrageous.

“Hannah has just set up here and she’s a hardworking, local businesswoman and she’s put so much hard work into the cafe to make it a success.

“I’m pleased she’s not going to let what’s happened put her off.

“We are all behind her.”

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: “Between 4.30pm on Sunday, January 26 and 8.30am on Monday, January 27, suspect(s) have smashed a side window of the Button Tree Café, Droitwich, broken in and have stolen the till containing a quantity of cash which is used as the café’s float.

“They have also stolen an iPhone 6.”
