POP-UP CAFÉ at BEAUMONT PARISH HALL We are exploring the idea of opening a weekend-only café in the Parish Hall during this summer season.  This is a trial run to assess demand, and if it is successful, we hope to start up a regular café, in the new Hall.  So, just for this summer, weekends only, we are looking for volunteers to help out in the kitchen and serving customers. The café would be open from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and would serve a simple menu of refreshments.  All profits raised would go to the new hall funds. If anyone can spare a few hours to support this venture, please get in touch.  There is no need to make a regular commitment, just whatever suits you. Interested?  Please call Richard Peart 575145, Bryony Kirk 576403 or email with contact details to beaumontpcwebsite@hotmail.co.uk.
