Coffee Morning

Held every Friday morning between 9.00 a.m. and 11.00 a.m. this is an informal chance to meet with friends and chat over a slice of cake and a cup of tea or coffee. A warm welcome awaits and everyone is welcome.

If you haven’t been with us before, one of our team will come and take your order from the table. We have a range of teas and coffee’s including decaf.

A must for those who arrive early is one of our famous bacon rolls or toasted teacakes from the kitchen. Plus we always have a range of delicious cakes, homemade by our many volunteers, available in the foyer for you to help yourself.
