This fantastic community facility that started with a flask and an empty room continues to be an oasis for busy villagers, a warm welcome for those who come to ballet, a creative space for art and craft ideas and a test audience for local entrepreneurs new business ideas.

One of our regular knitters at Knit and Natter that meet every Tuesday, makes children’s cardigans and jumpers and they are for sale in the coffee shop – prices start at £4 and make a perfect gift.

Other one off gifts for sale include wooden bowls and plates made by Tony Bunce these are being sold to support DCA (Deserving Children Africa)

We have been trialling home made cakes from a local start up business “Angels fantasy cakes”. These have proved very popular and can be found on sale in the coffee shop.

Painting Classes use the coffee shop every Monday in term time 12.30 to 2.30pm.

Each Christmas the coffee shop supports local charities and we are happy to sell items on a sale or return basis, if you know a local charity with small items to sell or you make suitable gifts that can be sold on behalf of a charity please contact us.  Other plans for Christmas include workshops for wreath making and card making – watch the church Friday news for dates.

Toiletries for the Homeless

Thank you very much to all those who contributed small/travel size toiletries to make up bags for the homeless.  If anyone has airline goodies, toothbrushes or sample sizes of toothpaste, shampoo, bodywash, soap, flannels etc, they
can be left in The Coffee Shop and assured of a good home.

The Coffee Shop opens Tuesday to Friday and Saturday morning – see times below.

The coffee shop began life with two flasks and one volunteer.

We still rely on volunteers, but we are now in a purpose built coffee shop.
