Coffee shop    

The Coffee Shop  has reopened.
We continue to extend our card range this term we have added cards from Frog & Gnome their designs are simple, quirky and fun.

For the food lovers we have introduced a new range of cakes & bakes from Bellaroo Bakes.  Started by a local entrepreneur Beth, Bellaroo Bakes make special occasion cakes.  Beth has agreed to create a small range of cakes & bakes especially for us. Please try them and let us know what you think.

The Knit, Natter, Sew group meet every Tuesday from 10 -12 in the coffee shop.  If you’ve every fancied trying your hand or have a project that needs an expert why not drop in.  They would be happy to help.  No need to bring any materials a starter pack for either crochet or knitting can be supplied.

A project we have taken on this term is to provide blankets of various sizes for Project Linus.  Make a square. Add your square to the box and the Knit and Natter group will make them up into blankets.

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)

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.

can be left in The Coffee Shop and assured of a good home.
