Every Monday morning:

Community Café, from  9.00 am – 12.00 noon

The Monday morning Café sessions are about giving people a chance to get out of the house and have a chat, a cuppa and homemade cakes & bakes. Or you may just want to have some time to yourself and read the papers or a magazine (these are provided).  Everyone’s very welcome, including children. Emergency services in uniform receive a free cuppa. Please spread the word and join us if you can!

CONGRATULATIONS !!!!! The cafe was integral to the hall being shortlisted in the Best Social Enterprise category of the Teesdale Business Awards!!!!! Well done all concerned, and good luck at the ceremony in February
