Martina Dodder held the first one on Sunday at the village hall in Ox House Lane.

She now wants to run a café every month and is looking for volunteers to help out.

She said: “I recently moved to the area and I feel I want to create a meeting place for neighbours to get to know one another – a place with a bit of community spirit.

“There isn’t a café nearby so setting one up in the village hall is ideal. The hall have agreed to let me have a go.

The café will run on the last Sunday of every month from 9am to noon.

Volunteers are also able to pick up elderly people unable to get to the hall themselves.
