In 2011 an idea was developed to run a weekly cafe in Cilcain Village Hall for the benefit of villagers and the many visitors, cyclists and walkers who visit the village and surrounding area.
The plan was to create a meeting place for people to enjoy a get-together over a cake and cuppa.
The hall is now open every Saturday between 2.00 pm – 5.00pm for different charities and groups to hire for the purpose of raising funds and awareness by selling home-made cakes, organising a raffle or tombola, and other activities.
Thousands of pounds have been raised for charity
