Coffee was flowing freely last weekend when two Methodist chapels welcomed people in for drinks and chat...all to raise much needed cash for church coffers.

The open morning on Saturday at the Wesley Methodist Memorial Chapel at Epworth was organised by the Network along with a group who meet regularly at the chapel, the Wesley Knitters.

The knitters have met for eight years and make warm tiny clothes for special care babies on neo-natal wards, along with items for care homes around the area.

They were there on Saturday to greet other church members and local residents who dropped by to browse the cake and preserves stalls and enjoy a friendly cuppa.

Just down the road at Westwoodside a similar event was taking place, with a Coffee and Scone Morning towards their church funds.

It wasn’t just scones though, as tables were laden with fancy cakes of all descriptions, for visitors to buy and take home with them.

Both events attracted a good number of people despite the cooler September weather, and will be repeated again soon.
