Wood Norton Cafe Pew & Pew Mart

'Cafe Pew’ is intended to be a monthly gathering to encourage the community to use the church as a social space, which was one of the terms of the grant made by the Heritage Lottery Fund for our recent refurbishment.  

Meanwhile, the idea of 'Pew Mart' is that anyone who wishes to do so can bring the surplus produce from their garden and swap this with what others are offering.  Alternatively, others may take what they would like in return for a donation to church funds.   


The latest Cafe Pew & Pew Mart was held on Friday 16 November.  We think we had over 20 through the door and it was good to see some young children included in the gathering; we are very grateful for everyone’s support.  

This month was an excellent butternut squash & ginger soup - we always go with vegetable soup so that we can include vegetarians and vegans in our offer.  The Pew Mart had a good range of garden produce on offer:  lots of apples - the village has had a good crop this year - cavolo nero, chard, potatoes, tomatoes and peppers; there were also some jars of home made chutney and jam available.  The deal is that anyone can bring their surplus stuff and swop it for something else.  Or, if people have nothing they wish to bring, they are welcome to take stuff in exchange for a small donation for the church.  

The next Cafe Pew is being planned for early in 2019 and will be in the church from 12.00 noon until 2.00 pm. Everyone is very welcome whether living in Wood Norton or further afield.  Watch this space for the date!
