On 14th June 2018, local independent business, Dapper Sandwich Company, became Northampton’s first Happy Cafe as accredited by international charity, Action for Happiness. The launch event was held at the cafe, earlier this month.
The concept of a happy cafe is to create a friendly and welcoming place to meet other people with a shared interest in promoting happiness and well-being. Dapper Sandwich has a range of literature, posters, pamphlets and postcards relating to happiness on display – and Action for Happiness supporters can identify themselves to each other by wearing a lapel badge available at the Café. There will also be a schedule of monthly events to help promote happiness and well-being in the community.
