finchingfield tea mornings

Next coffee morning  9th and 23rd May, 6th and 20th June.

Come to twice monthly Monday tea and coffee mornings. We thought it would be great for anyone living in Finchingfield  to pop in for a chat and a cuppa, and delicious home made cake. If you are new (or old) to the village, want to meet some new people or catch up with some friends, why not do it in the cosy surroundings of the Guildhall.  We look forward to see you!  Everyone's welcome.
