It is run entirely by village volunteers and there is lovely cake, tea/coffee and local produce available. Jenny and I can recommend the blueberry cake !

Each month they raise money for a different charity so if you need to chat someone, and want to help a community cause it’s a good place to consider. Everyone was really friendly.
