Every Friday 2:00pm to 4:30pm
Teas, Coffees and Cakes! Everyone welcome!
Every Friday afternoon you can come along and enjoy proper tea, coffee and homemade cakes. Everyone is invited to attend. Trellech Teas is a friendly place – you’ll never be left to sit alone. If you need a lift and live close by, please let me know.
We also offer afternoon tea for children, to give parents the night off from having to cook. A sandwich, drink, piece of fruit and a slice of cake is just £3.50. If you’d like to order a tea, let me know or contact Debbie on 01600 860322 (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are always in need of people to make cakes for us and if you fancy helping out at Trellech Teas you could join the ranks of the Trellech Tea Ladies (or Gents!). Please contact me if you’d like to find out more.
Hope to see you on Friday!
A Brief History of Trellech Teas
Trellech Teas which started in October 2012 is a once a week ‘pop-up’ tea/coffee shop held in The Babington Centre, Trellech. Times were set to enable parents to pop in before or after collecting children from school and for more elderly residents to come during daylight hours, even in winter. Books and games for children to use have been provided by the playgroup Busy Bodies and by Trellech Primary School.
The main objective of Trellech Teas is to provide a convenient and convivial place for Trellech residents and visitors to meet old friends and make new ones over a quality cup of tea or coffee and slice of home-made cake.
The idea was hatched during Jubilee Weekend when some residents commented that there was nowhere to meet for a social ‘gettogether’ over a cuppa. Following a similar model of ‘pop-up’ café held every week in Llandogo Village Hall, Babington Centre Trustee Sarah Whiddett set out to create a ‘tea shop’ style feel to the Teas – tablecloths, waitress service, good quality tea and coffee (including cappuccino) and homemade cakes.
All cakes are made and kindly donated by volunteers and all the waitresses and helpers are volunteers too.
Future plans for Trellech Teas include DVD lending library, book swaps and information points for service providers (e.g. library services and local businesses).
