CORNERSTONE COMMUNITY CAFE

Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays: 10am to 1.30pm
(last orders 1.15pm)

(Closed Bank Holiday Mondays)
Saturdays: 10am to 12 noon

Cornerstone opened on 16 July 2007 following two years of planning and vision and is committed to providing a welcoming environment for members of the local and wider community.  A dedicated team of over 90 volunteers prepare and serve food and operate the till.  Whilst many of the committee and volunteer group are members of the Methodist Church a large number are not, but all benefit from the friendships which arise from helping.  The cafe is a popular meeting place for all ages.

We use Fairtrade produce and our menu offers refreshments and light lunches which are served in friendly and welcoming surroundings.  Families with young children are welcome with high chairs and baby changing facilities available.

If you are interested in volunteering either during the week or on a Saturday morning, please contact Judith Johns 01943 872892.
