With a new village hall in Cofton Hackett still some way off, residents now have another way to get together thanks to a project set up by local churches.

St Michael’s in Cofton Hackett & St Andrew’s in Barnt Green have joined forces with the Goa Goa Restaurant on Groveley Lane to host “Cofton Community Coffee and Cake”.

“Many residents have told us that a community space within walking distance is much needed in this area,” says the Rev Sheri Gidney, curate for both churches.

“We are delighted that the newly-opened Goa Goa, located in the row of shops by Cofton Post Office, has agreed to host this community event.”

Cofton Community Coffee and Cake offers residents of all ages the chance to meet others in their community over a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of homemade cake.

The group currently meets every Monday from 1.30 to 2.30pm, with a cost of £4 per adult (no charge for children). It will run as a trial venture before committing to a long-term future, so villagers are encouraged to support the event.

Contact Goa Goa on 0121 447 7000 or on 0121 238 7912 for more details, or just turn up.
