The opening date for the new coffee club in the Orwell room will now be Wednesday 23rd March.
Already the room looks much more welcoming with new curtains thanks to Carolyn Rutland and soft furnishings. All the walls were re-painted this week and a new design from Simon and Wendy Doughty is being installed. New lighting is being provided and we will also have some superb new chairs available thanks to Ruth Wallett's contacts.
The coffee shop will be open from 9.00 to lunch time every Wednesday and is open to all. Daily newspapers will be available together with things such as cards and dominoes. We plan to have a book stall up and running and of course the coffee should be excellent. We will be brewing locally sourced fresh coffee from a high quality filter machine. Cakes and biscuits will also be available. Costs will be kept to a minimum and the intention is to provide a genuine social facility for those people who would welcome a friendly face, comfortable surroundings and a break from the norm.
This is not primarily a fund raising initiative but any profits made will be a welcome addition to our roof funding
