Activities and social events

Restarting social events and activities

We have now begun to restart activities and events whilst of course adhering to the Covid-19 restrictions in force at the time.

Coffee mornings

We are holding coffee mornings in the Top Brink Inn, Brink Top, Lumbutts, OL14 6JB by kind permission of Martin Ashton, the landlord. Good quality coffee and tea will be available priced per cup or pot and we are introducing cakes and scones as from April in response to requests! The pub will officially open at 12noon and you will be very welcome to stay on for lunch if you want to. Coffee mornings will be:

10.30am-12noon, 19 April 2022

10.30am-12noon, 19 May 2022

10.30am-12noon, 21 June 2022

10.30am-12noon, 21 July 2022

10.30am-12noon, 23 August 2022

Everyone is welcome at these coffee mornings: everyone who comes is asked to take a lateral flow test before attending so as to reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19.
