The coffee mornings and village market are usually held on the first Saturday morning of  every month, in the Coronation Hall, starting at about10.00 am to midday. The coffee morning with a village market is new idea for us - do support it and come along. If you wish to sell or swap some home made jams, cakes, honey, marmalade, (please ensure you home made products have you contact details on the label) 

plants, flowers or even some Bric-à-brac do come to the

Coffee Morning & Village Market. 

For those selling at the market a voluntary contribution to the hall funds would be appreciated. Bring your family and friends, meet your neighbours if you’ve yet to meet them and generally hear all the village gossip. If you want to play the Baby Grand Piano while we drink coffee thats great! There are always delicious 

cakes to go with the tea or coffee. Open to everyone and visitors.
