Coffee, tea, chat and cake

This group is designed to encourage interaction between the demographic groups in both our close knit communities. It provides an opportunity for people to chat, tell stories, share experiences, have a game of cards or dominoes maybe and is a good opportunity to suggest new MAYFACS activities. It also provides an opportunity for Mayfield residents to attend something in the lovely Five Ashes Village Hall and link up with other villagers and friends in a relaxing and welcoming environment. Yes, in case you are wondering there are men who come along.

If you are a parent, grandparent, carer or nanny, come and relax for half an hour with a brew and sumptuous cake before you pick up the children. We would be glad to see you and you would be most welcome.

When, where and at what time?

EVERYONE is welcome to join us in Five Ashes Village Hall from 2.30 to 4pm on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month. Look on our home page to find out the date of the next one. £2 per person.

Getting to Five Ashes

The tea & chat time is designed to fit in with bus times from and to Mayfield.

The bus from Mayfield stops opposite the primary school and there is a bus stop to return right by the Five Ashes Inn. Check out the latest time table.

If you are a car driver there is ample car parking at the hall.
