Community Coffee Mornings

Are you looking for a new way to promote awareness of your charity, voluntary or community group?

Why not run a Wednesday Coffee Morning at The Orchard.

Every Wednesday a community coffee morning will be held in the Willow Suite at The Orchard from 10 am to 12 noon. Run by a different charity each week the morning will provide an opportunity to raise awareness of your work, attract volunteers and raise some funds.

The way it works is that you serve tea, coffee (simple not fancy) and cake. You may also put up a display, run a bric a brac stall, tombola or raffle. You will need to supply at least 2 people for the morning to run smoothly (more if you are running stalls).

We will have a ‘host’ on hand to provide advice on the morning and deal with any issues.

The charge for the morning is £10 (payable on the day) to cover expenses for use of the suite (a self contained kitchen, seating areas and toilet). During the nice weather the patio area outside may also be used.

Please Note: there is no parking at The Orchard but central Basingstoke car parks are only a 10 minute walk away.
