St David’s Coffee Morning

Coffee mornings are held in the village hall every Thursday from 10.30 – 12.00 am.  It is a pleasant time to meet friends and other villagers over coffee and cake. All are very welcome. A small library of fiction and DVDs for villagers to borrow and return is being created upstairs in the committee room. It’s available at the coffee morning so you can grab a book, a coffee and Claire’s delicious cake all at the same time!
