Our next Coffee Morning will be held at Chaffcombe Village Hall on Wednesday 3rd February commencing at 10.30 until 12 noon. This month’s proceeds are in aid of Somerset Sight.
Chaffcombe has been holding Winter/Spring coffee mornings in the Village Hall for a number of years every 1st Weds of the month, 10.30-12 noon from Oct – May.
The idea behind it was to provide an opportunity for a regular informal get-together of parishioners and visitors – to meet up and chat, swap news, share ideas, meet new neighbours – to pop in for 10 mins or to stay for the full 90 mins!
Fresh coffee, tea and cakes (nearly always homemade!) are available for a donation to the chosen charity of the month.
There is usually a bring-and-buy stall too, i.e.. if people remember to bring!!
It’s proved itself to be a popular event and is very well supported so it has a good friendly atmosphere.
Everyone is welcome – parishioners and visitors – from the very young to the very old!! Bring a friend/relative or come on your own!!
It started as a social gathering rather than as a money-making venture – hence there is no raffle and only a request for donations to the charity of the month in exchange for coffee/tea and cake.
It is run by parish volunteers every month but other parishioners often step in and lend a hand
