Everyone is welcome to our monthly Community Coffee Morning! Whether you are a local resident or someone interested in hiring the Hall for your class or event, you are welcome to come and have a chat with other local residents and Hall users while our volunteers serve coffee, tea, and cakes. The Coffee Mornings are also an opportunity to talk with us about the Hall and your ideas about how you would like to use it.
Please note, although the event is FREE, we welcome donations to cover the costs of our new seating area. We also try to raise funds by selling books, CDs, DVDs, toys, etc.
Our local Independent Cheshire East Councillor for Macclesfield East Ward Cllr Mick Warren may run his surgery. Sometimes there is also a Police Surgery going on during the event.

"I would recommend anyone to come to a yoga class and have a go. I only began about nine months ago, my breathing has improved, I feel more supple even though I have arthritis in both my knees, and I always feel better for having done it. Come and have a go its BRILLIANT !!!!" Mo
"I have a sore back, which often is very tight - I can feel the difference the yoga exercises have made already after a few weeks." Amanda
"My mental well being has improved and I am less likely to feel stressed at work." Lesley
"For years I've suffered with back problems and since doing yoga with the stretching techniques it's improved dramatically. Things like gardening and looking after my 1year old Grandson are so much easier." Jane
"I really enjoy coming to yoga and wish I had done it years ago, I always thought it was for slim people and as I am overweight thought I couldn't do it I have quite surprised myself. I even find I want to practice it at home." Jude
"I practically float out of the class each week as I feel totally relaxed & very mellow!" Kate
