By providing an information service as well as a free community cafe with free tea, coffee and cakes, it serves many purposes; villagers can simply use it to be with fellow residents or even to meet them for the first time. Using us as facilitators in this regard, helps overcome any lack of confidence they may have developed because of feeling isolated.
As well as volunteers, the Coffee Caravan often takes along representatives from voluntary organisations such as Age UK and from local councils to explain what help and services are available to people. It also provides a useful place where community police officers get to meet the locals and chat about their concerns.
We make no charge for this service; all we suggest is that visitors may like to make a small donation. If you would like to know more please do get in touch.
