WAKEFIELD â A town tradition is now back serving up coffee, donuts and bagels with the opening of Bess Eaton last Friday at the corner of Main Street and Kingstown Road.
After Tim Hortons closed this past November, manager Mary Haverly saw it as an opportunity to bring the local Bess Eaton back to Wakefield.
âWe knew it was missed. We loved it and we knew it would be successful,â Haverly said. âIt was successful in the past and even as I owned Tim Hortons for six years, people kept asking for Bess Eaton coffee.â
NARRAGANSETTâThe Capital Reserves Committee met on Tuesday evening to outline upcoming renovations at the Narragansett High School. These major projects include a new glass envelope for the schoolâs greenhouse and a new floor for the high school gymnasium.
âThis committeeâs purpose is to understand the capital plan as presented to the school department, and make recommendations to the town council in financing all three schools,â said Katherine E. Sipala, Superintendent of Schools in Narragansett.
NORTH KINGSTOWNâSpecialty shops and artisans in Wickford Village are known for offering their customers a quality shopping experience along with great customer service. In keeping with that tradition, the long-time menâs and womenâs clothing store, Wilsonâs of Wickford has combined its retail space with the Wellness Store and Day Spa and Scrimshanders, both originally from Main Street.
COVENTRY â The Coventry club lacrosse team probably thought the first home match in school history would be played on pristine grass in front of a large crowd on a beautiful, sunny New England spring day.
There was a decent crowd at Wednesdayâs historic event, but the weather was the antithesis of what the players were hoping for.
Approved at Monday nightâs town council meeting the town of Coventry has entered into an agreement for erosion repairs along the Pawtuxet River.
The agreement is for a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
