A popular cafe has announced that it has been put up for sale.

Yummies Desserts & Deli Cafe on Senhouse Street in Maryport took to social media to say that it had made the decision, due to changes to the personal circumstances of the owners, with a "heavy heart".

They added that they will have to close the business if there are no interested parties willing to buy it by the end of the year.

A spokesperson for Yummies posted on social media: "This has not [come] easy as the business is still making good money and the business has been such a big important part of our lives over the last 18 months and it’s a great business for someone that has the time to be able to spend on it.

"We would like to thank each and [every one] of you that was a customer of The Sugar Chest and Yummies and has supported us over the last 18 months."

Yummies will continue to trade as normal up until the new year.

Anyone who is interested in taking over the business can message Yummies directly on Facebook at www.facebook.com/yummiesmayport, or email yummiesmaryport@outlook.com.
