Community Cafe at the Village Hall
Every Thursday 10.30am until 1.30pm (with lunches from midday!)
Many Penkhull residents are now regulars at the cafe, and this recent venture has been a great success. Throughout the winter months we are now offereing warming soups and cheesy oatcakes, as well as tea, filter coffee and our popular home made cakes.
The community cafe is there for everyone to use. We hope our older village residents, especially those who may be feeling a bit isolated, will come along. It's chance for a cuppa and a chat with old friends, and an opportunity to meet new friends and to get involved with all sorts of activities. Of course you may prefer to sit awhile in a sociable atmosphere - there are magazines to browse as well as an honesty bookshelf; if you want to take a book home all we ask is that you replace it with another one or leave a small donation.
After Christmas we hope to offer activities for people to take part in during the daytime. It might be arts and crafts or easy keep fit, who knows? It really depends on what customers tell us they would like to see on offer.
Pop in during opening hours and check it out. And if you haven't seen the hall since the small but dedicated refurbishment team have transformed it, take this opportunity to see what it looks like now - we think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
If you would like to help in the cafe or bake cakes please call in any Thursday between 10.30am and 1.30pm and talk to whoever is on duty.
We look forward to seeing you.
