RURAL FRIENDS.

Community Cafe, Community Hub, News & Events
We have started a brand new service for senior citizens in the BS26 postcode area which is proving to be very popular. Every Thursday morning our community bus will come to homes to pick up senior citizens to visit the café and hub in Loxton for a drink, snack and a chat, and then take you home. This service will be free, although passengers will have to pay for their food and drink at the café. The aim is to help people get together and make friends. To take part, phone or text 07881 630 629 or email [email protected] Please pass this on to those who would benefit from this service but who may not have access to the Internet. Thanks!

Community Hub, News & Events
Local MP for Weston-super-Mare, John Penrose, visited the Community Hub today and met three of the Trustees: Ian Shipton (l), Nigel Lincoln (2nd from l) and Phil Davies (r). John was amazed at what the Trust had achieved and acknowledged how important it will be in the future: "The Hub is a great way to remember a famous, local son [Frankie Howerd] and it's providing a valuable social heart for the Crook Peak villages which does not exist at the moment."
