Plumtree Welcome Café opened its doors for the first time on Thursday February 14th at 2pm. Visitors soon began arriving and some of them were still there when the Café closed two hours later.

In all there were more than 20 visitors and three volunteers; many visitors signed up to be volunteers at future sessions.

The Plumtree Welcome Café is held in St Mary's Church, Plumtree every Thursday between 2pm and 4pm. It’s staffed by volunteers and aims to provide a venue where people can meet and chat at informal weekly gatherings.

The Café isn’t a club, there's no membership and it's open to everyone, no matter what your circumstances. What's more, it's free and there will be tea, coffee and biscuits.

So why not come along to see what it's all about. You're welcome to stay for the full two hours, or just drop in for 10 minutes. You can visit every week, or just when its convenient for you.

Note that, although the Café is held in Plumtree church, it’s run independently of the church and it aims to serve all members of the local community.

Plumtree Welcome Café is part of the national Places of Welcome network - - a growing network of local community groups providing their neighbourhoods with places where everyone can join in, connect and contribute.
