Wood Norton Cafe Pew & Pew Mart

Wood Norton held the first ‘Cafe Pew & Pew Mart’ in All Saints’ Church on Friday 14 September. 'Cafe Pew’ is intended to be a monthly gathering to encourage the community to use the church as a social space, which was one of the terms of the grant made by the Heritage Lottery Fund for our recent refurbishment.  


A complimentary mug of soup was on offer, on this occasion it was a fantastic home made courgette soup prepared by Jenny Marchant, supported by a bread roll; complimentary tea and coffee were also available.  

Meanwhile, the idea of 'Pew Mart' is that anyone who wishes to do so can bring the surplus produce from their garden and swap this with what others are offering.  Alternatively, others may take what they would like in return for a donation to church funds.    

We were delighted by the response with just over 30 people coming through the door and it was nice to be able to welcome some children among them.  Everyone seemed to agree that it was a happy and relaxed gathering and everything went from the Pew Mart table showing that there was some good stuff on offer.  


We hope that the next Cafe Pew & Pew Mart will be at the end of October (date to follow), after All Saints’ has been redecorated as the final part of our refurbishment, and all will be welcome whether from Wood Norton or further afield.
