Out with the old, in with the new!
If you fancy a stall at our indoor table top sale please get in touch. There’s an event on our facebook page that you can comment on or alternatively email or pop in and see Nikki in the café.  Just £5 for a stall and the opportunity to sell on your wares and make way for Christmas.

Chef hats are on for Christmas Fayre
We’re offering a 3 course Christmas lunch menu for groups throughout December. All we ask is that you book at least three days in advance. £14.95 per head.

Find a new tale to tell…
We’re starting a weekly Book Swap afternoon on a Thursday (1st one on 30th Nov). Bring toddlers from 1.30pm to swap their good quality books and pick up a new one. Pop back with primary age children from 3pm to 4.30pm after school. If there’s anyone out there that would like to help deliver this on a Thursday please get in touch. Maybe a young person doing a Duke of Edinburgh Award  wanting to accrue some volunteer hours?

A great community space…come on down!
Our cafe is open daily 9am to 4.30pm serving refreshments throughout the day. A variety of clubs and groups meet here, it’s a hive of activity for all ages. Whether you want to catch up with a friend for coffee, enjoy a spot of gardening or take part in one of the many clubs that run, come on down.  We are sure you will find something that engages you!
