Community Events

The Community Cafe @ St. Julian’s runs every Thursday except those immediately around Christmas and Easter between 10:30 am and 2:30pm. This offers a chance for people to drop in and chat or relax over a coffee, a piece of home-made cake or light refreshments like soup and a filled jacket potato. Lap-top computers and free wifi is available: computer assistance can be booked. Like the Luncheon Club at St. Stephen’s, its Food Hygiene Rating is 5 stars, awarded by the City and District Council. This is as good as it gets!

Tots & Teas has recently started: it runs on Thursdays from 9am to 10:30. It is aimed at carers with both school-age and pre-school children returning from the school run: there is tea, coffee and snacks and a safe area for small children to play. It usually runs in school holidays but please check.
