On 18th March we were honoured to be one of the charities invited by Geoffrey Probert, Suffolk’s outgoing High Sheriff to take part in this year’s annual Suffolk Justice Service at Bury St Edmunds Cathedral.

Around 800 people attended the service, including Mayors, judges, solicitors, emergency services personnel and representatives of the voluntary sector. The Rural Coffee Caravan joined in the procession from the Athenaeum to the Cathedral and our vice chair, George Frost contributed a reading to the service.

Our new RCC caravan was also on hand on Angel Hill – a perfect opportunity to show it off a bit and raise awareness of what we do, but also offering a welcome respite from the day’s bitterly cold weather in the cups of hot tea and coffee which were served!

Our new recruit, Community Engagement Officer Megan Ablard, joined us for the afternoon so it was great to get to know her a bit better, and a wonderful way to welcome her to the wider ‘Coffee Caravan community.
