‘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

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 happens in the Village Hall on the last Friday of the month (except August - when everyone is busy with Fete duties, and December - when everyone is busy with Christmas). Great coffee and tea and fabulous home-made cakes for only £1.20 or £1.50 for the fresh ground coffee. Open to Everyone - locals and visitors. No-one will try to promote or sell you anything. The next one will be on Friday 29th September from 10.30 am til 12 noon. An ENORMOUS THANK YOU must go out to Fizz Lewis for organising the Cafe for almost 30 years. It provides a great time and place to catch up with friends and neighbours and local happenings. Fizz - Without your efforts and your belief in how important it is for the local community to get together the Cafe would not be such a success. Thank you from all of us. Liza and I are happy to take up the reins, but I have to say - Fizz - you are a hard act to follow! See you all at the Café. Lyn Cox 345739 Liza Hill 345230
