Drop In Coffee Morning

We hold a coffee morning on Thursdays from 9.30 until 12.00 which is a nice place to meet new friends and to chat to those you already know. There is no specific charge but we do suggest a small donation of £1 to cover our expenses. We serve hot and cold drinks, as many as you want, cakes on the tables and at around 11am we serve toasted tea cakes. We have celebration events such as our Christmas Dinner and occasional buffet lunches which are all great fun. We can also arrange lifts for anyone unable to walk there or who is without transport so it is ideal for those who can not always get out and about.

The majority of people are aged over 50, however we have had some younger people come along recently and that is great. It is important for us to have events that cross the generations. It also means that we could then have some younger people who can help out in the kitchen.

At the moment anyone on the rota for helping out in the kitchen is on duty around every 4 weeks. This does not however give us much scope to cover holidays or illness so we would really love to have a few more volunteers on our list. The more people we have the less often each person is on the rota. It would be great to get us back to a situation where each person is only on duty once every 6 weeks.

It is actually quite rewarding being in the kitchen. Part of the duty is to greet people as they come in and ask what they would like to drink. If it is someone new you may be the first person they speak to. There are always at least 2 people in the kitchen together so you are never just left there on your own. It only involves making drinks, collecting up cups and washing up. Toasting the teacakes is usually done by one of the regular helpers, although it is fine for anyone to do that as well.

If you are interested in coming along and/or helping out just turn up on a Thursday and ask for Lizzie.

If you would like to ring me my number is 01362 850491.

(You do have to announce who you are as we have call guardian to stop all those nuisance calls getting through.)

How To Find Us

To reach St. Mary's Church, we recommend you have a good look at it on Google Maps! If coming from the Dereham direction, bear left off the A47 at turn off marked "N. Tuddenham". Turn right as soon as you are off the A47 then next right into Fox Lane and follow the road over the top of the A47. After passing North Tuddenham village hall on your left, turn right at the crossroads then immediately left. After a short distance on your left side is a sign marking the entrance to a land leading to St. Mary's. There is a small amount of parking space at the end of the lane on your left, but you may wish to swing round at the end and head back out slightly and park on the left side of the lane.
If coming from the Norwich direction, leave the A47 at the exit marked "N. Tuddenham" then turn left onto Fox Lane. Pick up the instructions from that point from those above.
If coming from the Mattishall direction, head down Burgh Lane from Mattishall and at the end, turn left onto an unnamed road marked towards "North Tuddenham". Follow the road, bearing right. Keep on this road until you head slightly down a hill to cross the river Tud and ascend the other side. The entrance to the lane down to St. Mary's is at the top of the hill on your right.
