Coffee Shop


The Coffee Shop provides the opportunity to sit and chat over a cup of tea, coffee, or whatever your taste, and if tempted, a slice of homemade cake. The friendly environment is a life-line for some of the visitors - in some cases it is the only company regularly available to them. The volunteers provide a professional service, not disliking a chat themselves!


For others it's a practical solution in the middle of a shopping trip, and with the library opposite the entrance it's an opportunity to start a book that's just been borrowed.
