Corner Café was started in the autumn of 2004 by a few ladies from the church in response to a need to reach out to the wider community in the parish. The café thrived and is open on Thursday mornings from 10am until noon in the Church Hall, Newburgh.
Many come along on a regular basis to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with toast, homemade scones, cakes and a friendly chat. We have also welcomed the occasional group of ramblers and even a couple of long distance cyclists for a well-deserved refreshment stop.
The café continues to be run by a group of volunteers from the church and local community. We are grateful for their willingness to serve at the tables, wash up and generally tidy up when the busy morning is over. Donations of baking and biscuits are always appreciated. Anyone who would like to help at the café in any way should come along on a Thursday morning and speak to one of the volunteers.
No charge is made but customers can leave a donation in the box on the counter. Money that has been given over recent years has contributed to the cost of installing the new windows, new floor coverings and materials used in the recent redecoration of the hall. Approximately 10% of the annual proceeds go to a charity chosen by our supporters.
If you have not yet been to Corner Café, please join us for your mid-morning refreshment and make some new friends. All are welcome, including mothers and fathers with young children – there are plenty of toys available!
