Saturday Cafe @ The Lodge

The Saturday cafe returns for the first time since lockdown on Saturday 15th August, hosted by the Graylingwell Park Residents Association.

A free event, where donations are welcomed for the coffee, tea and freshly baked cakes that are available.  This is a wonderful way to connect with neighbours, meet new people and hear more about what is going on in the local area.  Now more than ever, it is so important for us all to feel connected and continue to nurture that wonderful sense of community built up during the challenging months we have experienced.

All social distancing measures will be applied with numbers limited, hand gel available, and thorough cleaning before and after the event.
