Every Monday morning: Community Café, open  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, 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. Please spread the word and join us if you can! Email Joanne if you have any questions or if you’d like more information.

Wednesday 31 October: The Vinyl Countdown 7.00 pm – 10.00 pm
Come to a music and social evening and listen with other music-lovers to records played through a top-notch hifi system. If you still have a record collection, why not bring a couple of favourite albums and share them? It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any records – come along. Free entry. The bar will be open with fine wines and whiskeys in stock especially for this evening, along with hot and cold soft drinks. Call Les (07715 303515) for more information.

Entry ticket includes artisan cheeses from local producers, accompaniments (crudités, local chutney, breads) and wine tasting. Tickets £12 from Staindrop Post Office or from Ticketsource.
