Coffee shop

The coffee shop will close for a summer break for the volunteers and staff at 2pm on Saturday 16 August and re-open on Monday 1 September at 10am

There will be many classes running in week beginning 17 August but no classes in week beginning 25 August. We plan to re surface the floor in the hall and do some other work on the building during that week.

Most classes re-start in the following week including the Pilates etc groups.


Repair Café in the hall 10-2 on 20 September bring your broken items.

Also on 20 September please keep the evening free and buy your tickets for a Peace meal to celebrate Peace One Day. Hearing of the violence around the world makes this opportunity all the more important. There will be a Peace scholar from Nigeria speaking of the problems there.
