Coffee Mates

The Coffee Mates group normally meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 11.00 am – 12.30 pm.  The contact for the group is Andrea Sadler, tel 07927 660 408 or email

Coffee Mates is a group that meets to drink coffee and to socialise.  We are venturing further afield as the people with cars are prepared to give lifts (only when allowed).  We all have a laugh and a chat.  It started as 11.00 am till 12 noon but we enjoy it so much it has extended to 12.30 pm.

Next meeting:



November – TIER 4 – LOCKDOWN

We are now walking and talking, taking our own coffee/snack.

October – TIER 2 – FACE TO FACE

We are currently meeting face to face, 6 at a time every Wednesday following the changing guidelines.



So far I have arranged three Zoom meetings with members of Coffee Mates.   I think everyone who has participated has enjoyed it.  They said it was nice to speak to people face to face.   We have a coffee, cup of tea or drink of water; sometimes even cake – and a laugh.

I am going to continue with a meeting every week until all members in Coffee Mates who have an email address have been included.  I’ve telephoned the members who haven’t got email and we’ve had a chat; which they said they appreciated.  I will continue to do this, mixing members up so we can speak to different people each time.

I would encourage other Group Contacts to try it; your members would appreciate the visual contact.                                                                                                          Andrea

January – Trinity Farm, Awsworth

Coffee Mates found a little treasure in Awsworth – Trinity Organic Farm.  Home made cakes and bread all for sale to take away.  They also sell organic veg grown on the farm.

We all love it.  Very cosy.  The owners couldn’t have been more hospitable.  We are returning in the summer for a guided tour of the farm and finishing off with coffee and cake. Yummy.


September we were at The Cow Shed

October we were all in The Doghouse.  Is Andrea trying to tell us something?


Since March 2015, when the group began, we have been to many different locations
for ☕ 🍰 and a chat.
