Friday 6 February 2015 St David’s Church, Rocky Lane, Childwall, Liverpool, L16 1JA
The Friday Morning Community Cafe at St Davids Church Childwall has run successfully for over two years. The success has motivated the church to look at opportunities to expand the community facilities. With the help of Childwall Ward Councillors Jeremy Wolfson, Ruth Hirschfield and Frank Hont, the Friday Morning Café will now include a monthly event, on the first Friday of each month, for the benefit of the local community.
The first event takes place on Friday 6 February 2015 10am – 12 noon. At this time of year it’s important for everyone to stay warm especially the elderly and infirm so we will concentrate on keeping warm and getting the best value out of the fuel used during winter time.
As well as helpful advice there will be some packs to take away for practical use to help keep warm and using resources well.
Rev Robert Williams, Vicar of St David Childwall said, “When we decided to start the Friday café at St David’s, we did so with the vision in mind of using the church facilities as a place where people could meet socially, as well as a place that could be used as a meeting point where information could be accessed. Working together with the Childwall Ward councillors, who have given us their full support, we hope that this new resource will be supported by members of the local community and beyond.”
In future months the Friday Morning café are planning to feature dementia awareness, the credit union and debt, and the practical use of computers were people in the community are feeling excluded in their everyday life.
Councillor Wolfson said: “It is very important that we ensure that elderly and vulnerable people in our community are kept safe and warm throughout the winter. As ward councillors we have fully supported the Friday café as it is a great way of providing information and support and I would encourage local residents to take advantage of it.”
