A coffee shop in Royal Wootton Bassett High Street is set to reopen after it closed last month. 

Noden's Coffee shut its doors at the end of October after owners Rebecca Noden and her husband Steven announced they were expecting a baby. 

But the cafe will not be closed for long as it is due to reopen as a new coffee shop called Brambles thanks to a serendipitous moment.

New owner Hazel Dean, 60, from Lyneham but moving to Bassett, happened to be in the cafe as a customer when its closure was being discussed.

With years of experience and plans already in motion to live in the area, Hazel said she jumped at the opportunity to take the site on. 

"It all sort of fell into my lap, it was a bit of a whirlwind and it all happened very quickly," she said. 

"I wasn’t looking for a business, I was looking for a house to move into the area because I love the High Street of Wootton Bassett.

"When I saw Wootton Bassett High Street I loved all the little shops, the butchers and the bakers and the haberdashery, I loved that sort of thing."

Brambles will be dog-friendly and will have lots of homemade cakes and tray bakes including gluten-free and vegan too

Hazel added: "We've been getting it ready. It's looking very warm now, it's full of plants. I love plants all the plants that are in the café now are homegrown.

"We also love animals, especially our dogs, my daughter has dogs and I have cats, what I love about the cafe being pet friendly is that someone coming in, who has gone for a nice walk, with their dog can just bring them in.

"They shouldn’t have to go home and drop the dog off just to have a coffee."

The new venture also presents an added bonus for Hazel as she has reunited with former employees  Latisha and Jermaine Labbett.

"It's so nice to have them, we've worked together before so it's great to have them back for Brambles."

Hazel added that she is hoping to officially open the cafe in time for the Royal Wootton Bassett Christmas light switch-on taking place on December 1.

"We would love to be open then but it all boils down to technology and WiFi etc."
