Wood Norton Cafe Pew & Pew Mart

'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.  

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.   

  

The latest Cafe Pew & Pew Mart was held on Friday 26 October.  We think we had 25 through the door and it was good to see some young children included in the gathering; we are very grateful for everyone’s support.  We also had an unexpected visitor who arrived to read  the electricity meter and was delighted to be invited to stay for a cup of tea.  

Carol Robson prepared an excellent leek and potato soup - we always go with vegetable soup so that we can include vegetarians and vegans in our offer.  The Pew Mart had a good range of garden produce on offer:  lots of apples - the village has had a good crop this year - cavolo nero, chard, potatoes, tomatoes and peppers; there were also some jars of home made chutney and jam available.  The deal is that anyone can bring their surplus stuff and swop it for something else.  Or, if people have nothing they wish to bring, they are welcome to take stuff in exchange for a small donation for the church.  

The next Cafe Pew is being planned for Friday 16 November in the church from 12.00 noon until 2.00 pm.  Everyone would be very welcome whether living in Wood Norton or further afield.
