‘Village Cafe’

Not a cafe in the conventional sense,

the very popular Village Cafe started

life over 25 years ago and has been

running very successfully at Buckland

Newton Village Hall on the last Friday

of every month (except December and


The ‘Village Cafe’ was started for several reasons, the main ones being to introduce people new to the area to others and to keep people in touch with each other and what is happening in the village. The next cafe will be on 30th September, last Friday in the month whatever the date, from 10.30 to noonish at Buckland Newton Village Hall. Homemade cakes and beverages - as much as you’d like for £1.30 or £1.50 depending on instant or ‘real’. For free will be all that chat, catching up on those holidays abroad, waiting for flights, baking on beaches until crisp, trying to ‘hydrate’ with warm water, opening and closing your curtains, opening and closing your windows, guiltily watering the pots of frazzled (or is it frizzled?) plants - what an action-packed summer it’s been. And we still have the floods to come I suppose. Please contact me if you can offer your services as a host and/or cake baker at the cafe. Most people were away at the end of June and July (obviously doing all the aforementioned). Ring me or email me with what you can offer I have spaces to fill September, October, November, January, February, March, April (not May) June and July. So, I need you…. PLEASE.
