Community Café is held in the Village HallOn Hold

The Community Café, set up under Withyham Parish Council’s ‘Forward for Five’ initiative, has been running since March 2016, and was first hosted by the “Founders” group.

The aim of the monthly Saturday Café, running from 10-12 noon, is to bring people together and to give them somewhere to meet up over a relaxing beverage and delicious home-made cakes and biscuits. Old friends meet up on a regular basis there, and many new friends and contacts have been made since it started, which we hope will continue long into the future.

Very often the Withyham Parish Amblers, a walking for pleasure monthly event, which was also set up under the ‘Forward for Five’ initiative, join the Café after their walk and enjoy what the Café has to offer.

Several clubs, groups and societies have taken it in turn to host and run a Café;

  • the W.I.
  • PreSchool
  • St. Thomas’s Church
  • St. Thomas’s School
  • The Scouts
  • Groombridge Horticultural Society

Each group has brought its own special personality to the Café and each one has been hugely enjoyed and well attended.
