Community news: Gorseinon pop-up cafe at the New Lodge

Pop up cafe in the new lodge, Gorseinon. Weekly starting Wednesday 15th September, 1pm to 3pm. Join us for tea, coffee, a bite to eat and a chat. Coordinator contact Rachel Cole 07929743468 or Ann Robinson 07966245623

The pop up café previously run from Ty Newydd in Gorseinon pre-covid, will relaunch on 15 September 2021 at The New lodge in Gorseinon.

It will be held weekly, offering refreshments and cakes (when available) on a ‘pay what you can afford’ basis. If that is zero pence, then that is fine. The focus isn’t on making any money for the café, it is to be a place where people can come for a chat with friends old and new.
