STOKE HAMMOND-- WEDNESDAY COFFEE MORNINGS

On December 1st. 1993, we held our first coffee morning at Stoke Hammond Methodist Chapel.
We had decided to hold weekly coffee mornings on a Wednesday to make regular use of our new kitchen, Vestry, and toilet extension. We chose not to charge a set price, but to put a bowl on the table for people to make a donation ~ we still have the same arrangement today. On that first occasion, 15 people came and as it was close to Christmas we had mince pies to go with the tea and coffee.
We drew up a cake rota, and now several ladies take turns to provide delicious home-made cakes or savouries.
The first week's donations amounted to £6.35p, and although that seems a very modest amount, the money collected over the years paid for a replacement pipe organ for the chapel, which two of the founder coffee morning members play at Sunday Services, and now supplements chapel funds. We average about 20 people each week, but on a recent occasion there were 29 present.
Having put pen to paper I could almost write a book about what goes on at the coffee morning. It is such a happy place to be, and just like a family -- only we don't squabble!

Do call in if you are passing between 10.30 and 12pm on a Wednesday.
