Walter’s Third Thursday Café & First Thursday Soup & Social

Walter’s Cafe Spring 24

Woodham Walter Parish Council organises a monthly community café. “Walter’s” is held on the Third Thursday of the month from 10-12 in Woodham Walter Village Hall, Rectory Road, Woodham Walter, CM9 6RF. The first café in April 2023 was well attended with about 40 visitors throughout the morning – some stayed for a quick cuppa and some came for the whole morning. There were lots of very positive comments and we look forward to the next one on the third Thursday of the each month. Why not come along and give it a try?

Each month we will have guests and information available to give advice on Health & Wellbeing, Crime and Fraud Prevention, Home Safety and lots more over the months. And most importantly tea, coffee and biscuits so our residents can get together in a social setting for a cuppa and a chat.

There is also a children’s corner with colouring and a few puzzles for our younger visitors.

We have been awarded funding from the Maldon District Council Community Hub Grant Scheme, along with Parish Council funding, the event is free for everyone. Our refreshments have been donated by local supermarkets and we thank our group of volunteers who help us each month.

WINTER UPDATE – 1st Thursday Soup & Social. We are now providing an additional Walter’s on the First Thursday’s of December 7th, January 4th, February 1st and March 7th where we will serve a soup lunch. Please book for the Soup & Social so we know how many to expect. email: or phone: 01245 373686
