LIZA Bloomer has a full plate, so she is turning to the local community for a platter of suggestions.

Ms Bloomer successfully applied to lease the premises which formally housed well-loved restaurant Georgie's at the Grafton Regional Gallery.

She will open a new cafe after the July Races and is inviting the public to create a funky name.

"I think the community will come up with a few interesting suggestions," Ms Bloomer said.

"I can't wait to read them. I might have to get creative too and start thinking of a prize for the best cafe name, perhaps free coffee for a year?"

Ms Bloomer said additional points would be awarded for names with an artistic theme.

If you believe you can conjure the perfect name for the new cafe, write your full name, idea and contact details and place them in the suggestion box at Grafton Regional Gallery between 10am-4pm, Tuesday to Sunday.

It's a blooming good idea
