TRELLECH TEAS AT THE BABINGTON CENTRE

Welcome back to 2019 Trellech Teas. Everyone welcome for a hot cuppa and tasty fare from 2 till 4.30pm every Friday at the Babington Village Hall.

We are starting to fill places for the ‘takeover teas’ slots too, so if you would like to use the session for building up some funds for a particular organisation of your choice, this provides an ideal platform to invite supporters, friends as well as reaching out to our existing customers. All you need to do is to contact Jean or Margaret with a Friday in mind, advertise your event and find volunteers to bake and help! We can help guide you through the process.

We are always on the lookout for new helpers and bakers ourselves, so please let us know if you would like to contribute occasionally.

Most of all, just come along and enjoy some friendly chat; and if you can’t stay, then we can package up a takeaway box with cake and or quiche!

With best wishes

Jean and Margaret

What’s in store at Trellech Teas?


(Opens every Friday from 2pm to 4.30pm)

Trellech Teas has continued to open its doors all summer and what a lovely one it was.

Many cups of refreshing tea and slices of seasonal cake were served and the Trellech Tea ladies would like to thank all our customers for their continued support.

In fact, as we approach the new season, we will be celebrating our 6th anniversary, so please note Friday 28th September in your diaries and come along and join us.

There is another very good cause being championed this day also; The Macmillan Fund are holding their annual coffee morning. So please keep room for a little piece of cake in the afternoon and we will donate our takings for that day to this very worthwhile cause.

The next ‘Take over Teas’ is on Friday 19th October, when funds raised that day will help support the work of our local bellringers. More about this in our next edition.

We are currently working on our autumn programme and will keep you informed of any events, so for the meantime, keep Friday afternoons free if you can and come and join us in the Village Hall for refreshment and lively chat and hopefully a giggle. All ages welcome. We have a range of speciality teas and coffees, drinks for the children and a gluten free cake and quiche is always available.

Don’t forget that if you cannot stay, our takeaway boxes allow you to take cake (and quiche) away to family, friends and colleagues.

Last but not least, if anyone else out there would like to join our band of happy helpers, either as bakers or helpers, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Best wishes,

Jean and Margaret.

Trellech Teas warming up for Summer

(Trellech Teas opens every Friday at the Babington from 2pm to 4.30pm)

We continue to welcome all at Trellech Teas, as we hopefully move towards warmer weather.

This month, we are proud to say that as we run as a not for profit organisation, we are able to make three substantial donations from last year’s takings. This is due of course to our customers and volunteer helpers and bakers, without whom we would not be able to run.

The ‘good causes’ identified this year are; Solas, who provide a broad range of services for vulnerable people, those that are homeless or at risk of homelessness locally; a charity in Cambodia supporting children and girls education and our own village hall in Trellech, to be put towards a new notice board to replace the one currently in use outside the Babington Centre.

We have two ‘takeover teas’ coming up soon. This is an opportunity for local organisations to hire the hall and raise money for their own causes. 27th April will be the turn of the Babington Trust to organise the afternoon and 18th May will be the turn of ‘Home Start’ who provide help and support for families in the locality. Please come along and take refreshment in the usual way, in the knowledge that you are contributing to the community at the same time.

For now, enjoy a cup of tea, coffee and a delicious slice of cake or quiche in the warmth of the hall. Don’t forget we do a range of speciality teas and cafetiere coffees along with a gluten free cake every week.  The 3 smaller pieces of cake for £2.50 is always a popular option and you can always ‘takeaway’ with our purpose built cake boxes.

Hope to see you soon and don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to help or bake!

Best wishes,

Jean Hughes
