‘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 village cafe for Buckland Newton takes place at the Village Hall every last Friday in the month from 10.30 am to noonish. We run it ourselves with a volunteer rota of duties, those hosting it, make and serve the teas and coffees, provide flowers and cakes and two more volunteers make more cakes. It is open to everybody, visitors included and for the princely sum of £1.20 the coffee and cake can be enjoyed along with, most importantly, a good catch up with people you don’t normally meet up with. I think some people think it is just for the older folk - this is definitely not the case; it is there as a village asset to be used by all ages. No one will ask you to join anything, buy anything - and we won’t all stop talking and stare at you when you walk in either. Give us a try.   Please let me know if you would like to volunteer taking a turn either ‘hosting’ on the morning or baking a cake for it. I will be very pleased to hear from you.  Fizz Lewis 345521.
