A COMMUNITY FACILITY THAT PROVIDES A SOCIAL EXCHANGE FOR OUR VILLAGE, ONE CUP AT A TIME…
The Café opened on Friday September 4th 2015 in the Village Hall and has continued as a Friday morning café ever since, opening at 9am until noon.
It has become an asset to the village, offering companionship and a contact point for people living in the area while enjoying delicious homemade cakes, teas, and coffee in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere with ‘Cake for Breakfast’ as our mantra!
The Café is run, and cakes baked, by volunteers. It is hard work for those involved but great fun and great appreciation and support is given by the customers who enjoy this community facility.
On the first Friday of each month an ‘Exchange Stage’ is held during the café hours where people can bring items they do not want and take anything they do! No money involved!
On the second Friday of the month the Cafe hosts the Tingewick Village Hall Draw when one prize of £20 and two of £10 are drawn.
The café also holds two Craft Fairs and Saturday Cafes; one in Spring/Summer and a Christmas event in December to coincide with the lighting of the village Christmas tree and carol singing event.
It is also a great opportunity to give financial support to the Village Hall. Since opening in 2015 the Café has raised over £35.000 for the running and improvement of the hall.
Other local organisations who have benefited are Tingewick Pre-School, Roundwood School, Tingewick Scouts, Tingewick Football Club, Townsend Pond refurbishment, and the local food bank.
Support is also given to many national charities, including Macmillan Coffee Morning, Comic Relief, Sports Relief, and Children in Need, along with many others.
A total of £12,709 was raised for numerous charities and organisations in 2022 alone.
It’s amazing how much good can come from eating cake!!
The weekly menu board is posted on Tingewick Community Cafe Facebook page every Thursday afternoon for customers perusal.
