November free exchange - last one in 2018

The popular Free Exchange CafĂ© is open for another season with first being on Sunday, the 4th of November from 10.30 to 12 noon, in the Church at Whitchurch Canonicorum.


Enjoy freshly-brewed coffee, tea, croissants and pastries straight from the oven. Catch up with friends and neighbours, or browse the Sunday papers. Come for ten minutes or stay for an hour. 

Ros will be hosting the Children's Corner 

The Free Exchange Table is open, too. Bring something you no longer need, take something away if you like it or both or neither - whichever you choose, no money changes hands. Plants and Produce are always welcome. 

There's no charge for the Cafe (but feel free to leave a donation).
