COFFEE, cake and biscuits are on the menu at a popular community coffee morning.

St Cuthbert’s Church Centre in Hayling Avenue in Copnor holds the coffee morning every Tuesday and people of all ages turn out to enjoy it.

It gives people in the local community a chance to make some new friends.

Sue Walker is chairwoman of St Cuthbert’s Trust and helps to run the event.

She said: ‘It’s a weekly coffee morning which runs every Tuesday apart from the one after Christmas.

‘It’s lovely because you get all the generations coming together to meet up.

‘It has meant that so many people have got new friends.

‘It’s a really lovely atmosphere there.’

The group has been running at the centre for more than three years now.

‘We get young and old, so we get lots of little babies coming along too,’ Sue added.

‘People come in and have a coffee and a chat.

‘It’s a bit quieter during the school holidays but we generally get quite a good number of people turning up.’
