Folly Row Café's ChatTable is Here!
Folly Row Café in Kington St Michael now has its own ChatTable. Café owner Kirsty Clark said “We are really pleased to have a ChatTable in the café, and hope that people will make good use of it; we’re a friendly café anyway, but we hope that this will encourage those on their own to pop in.”
Family friend and village teenager, Iona Durno, 17, approached Mrs Clark with the idea of instigating a ChatTable. She explained “I had heard of the idea beforehand and thought it would be great to have one in our village café, so that anyone on their own could sit down and be joined by others, and have a cup of coffee and a nice conversation”.
The concept of the ChatTable is that anyone can sit and talk at the designated table, whether for five minutes over a cuppa, or longer for some great conversation. It’s open to anyone, whether they’re on their own, new to the village and wanting to meet people, a new mum looking for someone to chat to, or someone just having “one of those days” and needing a distraction – making friends is optional.
Folly Row Café’s ChatTable is currently available from 10am to 11am on Mondays and Tuesdays and from 2.30pm - 3.30pm on Monday afternoons.July: We shall be starting a book club around September time - watch this space!
March: March has been a big month for Folly Row Café. On the 14th we celebrated our 3rd Birthday. We would like to thank Hilary Leek for opening the café back in 2015 and making it the thriving business that it is today. She has worked extremely hard over the past three years and has now decided that her work here is done and it is time to let someone else take the helm. That person is me, Kirsty Clark.
Please don’t worry, there won’t be any major changes only ones for the better, as Hilary keeps reminding me. Although I have been working here two days a week for the past 3 years, I don’t know you all, but I look forward to welcoming you all at the café. All the other familiar staff will still be here with a couple of new faces to ensure we can open
seven days a week.
