Coffee and Card Locations

I must be one of the luckiest people around! Twice a week I get to spend time with some lovely people at my coffee and card sessions - and not only that, the two venues I work with are such a delight, with the perfect atmosphere, superb, personal service and great coffee!

I thought it was time I gave both venues a shout out!

Monday mornings in Towcester

So, our Monday morning sessions are held at 185 Watling Street, Towcester. It is easy to find, right on the main road through Towcester (Watling Street) with free parking available nearby. Tori is our breakfast manager and looks after us - usually knowing exactly what drinks we want to order as we come through the door. How is that for service! Our numbers here vary from 8 people up to 16 people per session. During the school holidays we are often joined by some lovely young local teenagers, as you can see below.

Here is a photo from this week's session:

We meet every week throughout the year, including most Bank Holiday Mondays.  I advertise our planned projects on the local Towcester Facebook Groups - so you can always check there and see what we are doing. These are:
The Towcester Community Events Group
Our card designs for the two sessions each week are usually based on the same design.
Our design this week (14/08/2018) was inspired by Stampin' Star Creations, using stamps from Oh So Eclectic to create poppies.

Wednesday mornings in Brackley

Our second location is Hummingbirds Bistro, Market House Courtyard  in Brackley.  A great setting, with our lovely hosts Nicky and Tracey who look after us; re-organising tables and chairs to accommodate us all. If you have never tried Iced Latte, then this is the place to give it a go, not to mention the famous Hummingbird Cake (available fresh on Thursdays).

We have mostly locals for this event, as it is in walking distance of the majority of Brackley, and our numbers vary between 10 and 16 each week. This session has to have the widest range of ages for our attendees - from 3 years through to 92 years of age! We also have visitors from the Banbury area join us on a regular basis. Here is a photo of this week's session. You can see Nicky serving us, with Tracy heading out of the door!

We were lucky enough to be filmed professionally at Hummingbirds 2 years ago, and you can see the 5 minute videos on You Tube, on the Stampin' Up! UK channel
