From the start of May 2022 we revert to our pre-COVID arrangement of afternoon-only sessions (1.30-4pm). These run for two and a half hours – just as we did before COVID.
Our first afternoon-only cafes (1.30 – 4pm) of 2022 will start at Boothtown (4th May) and Sowerby Bridge (14th May).
We want to make the most of this extra half hour – so we’re asking all of our members what they’d like to do.

We’ve been running morning and afternoon cafes (of 2 hours each) since September 2020. We began to do this because of legal (COVID) limits on the numbers we could have in the room and we’ve continued so as to optimise space between people. We’ve been able to continue to operate these “double” cafes for the past 18 months through the efforts and dedication of our wonderful volunteer team.
Whilst COVID certainly hasn’t gone away, we are confident that we can operate safely with larger numbers in a single session. Now that winter is over we’ll focus on ventilating the room to improve air flow (also using a Carbon Dioxide monitor to measure air quality during the cafe).
We’ll continue to sanitise tables and other surfaces. Hand-sanitiser will still be provided.
We have ended the requirement for people to wear masks – but people may, of course, choose to wear them.
Thanks to all our members and volunteers for staying with us through the trials and tribulations of the past two years.
