Coffee, conversation and company: A new Community Café opens in Salisbury

Salisbury City Council has created a place for tea, talk and time to ask for advice at the new Our Community Café.

The weekly drop-in café offers warm drinks, conversation and company in the City Centre. Everyone is welcome to pop in for a free beverage and a chat.

Running every Tuesday morning between 10am and midday at the Salisbury Baptist Church, the first Community Café will take place on Tuesday 18th January.

Each week local organisations will be attending to address issues such as housing, mental health and parenting.

The first theme will be debt and money management and the team from Christians Against Poverty will be there on the 18th of January to chat about the services they offer.

If you are a local organisation and would like to offer helpful guidance and advice at the community café, please contact the Communities Team.

Sarah Gregson, who is the Communities Manager for Salisbury City Council said, “The Communities team have been running Your Salisbury Pantry since April 2021 and we love a chat with our members, but there just isn’t the space in our shop. So, we are creating this café space, just over the road at the Baptist Church, to give us the space and time for members to get to know us and each other.

“But why stop there? – this café is for anyone in Salisbury who wants to join us and we will invite some of the many wonderful organisations in Salisbury who might be able to offer the right type of support or advice for someone, at just the right moment.”

Any enquiries please call the Communities Team on 01722 417100.
