The coffee mornings were set up by Leigh on Mendip WI as part of a nationwide Community Challenge set by the National Federation of WIs.  Each WI branch was challenged to do something for their local community.  The coffee mornings, the idea of Barbara Turner, are run monthly on Monday mornings and coincide with the opening times of the post office at the Village Hall.

Each coffee morning is well attended and as well as refreshments, there are books to buy.

Cllr Gloria Cawood’s contribution of £50 from her local community grant budget will assist the coffee mornings to continue for the foreseeable future.
