Brand new coffee morning being organised by WGN at The Jolly Butcher Pub corner of Petersfield Drive and Butcher Lane. It’s a lovely bright space and will really lend itself to a range of activity. Let’s kick off the coffee morning with some ideas for future coffee mornings. With the added bonus of the pub having Community Pub status we are assured of a really supportive team. Starting Wednesday 19th February for a trial of 10 weeks. WGN would like to take advantage of this wonderful free space to bring residents together for a bit of getting to know each other.
