Coffee mornings are held twice a year in March and October on a Saturday morning at the Pauline Thaw Centre (Age Concern), Dale Avenue, Hassocks.

Stile refurbished by the Monday GroupAs well as being an opportunity to meet friends for a coffee and a chat it enables the Society to raise funds for a local environmental charity or project.  Stalls generally include books, bric-a-brac, and homemade cakes as well as tombola and a raffle.

The next Coffee Morning is being held on Saturday 10th March 2018 from 10.00 am to 12 noon - We are raising funds for the Budding Foundation based at the South Downs Heritage Centre.
