Anyone who’s visited the Abbey Café recently knows it’s a hive of activity, with food served 11am – 2pm, people of all ages relaxing with some arts’n’crafts from 11am, and our popular Tech Buddies sessions abuzz with IT help from 10 – 12noon.
However, every now and then we like to put on something extra too! From raffles to bookswaps, we always find low-cost ways to entertain our guests. Here are the special events coming up the next few Saturdays.
