Rookhow Zoom cafe continues

Nov 11, 2020

Wonderful news! The weekly Rookhow Zoom Cafe will be continuing.  Due to huge support from our regulars to keep it going, the cafe will now be co-ordinated by new Rookhow volunteer Gill Taylor from Finsthwaite (just a mile or two up the road from Rookhow), supported by Carol McNeill (Oxen Park), Suan Marston (local Quaker from Preston Patrick) and Douglas Davidson (a Rookhow supporter now living in St. Alban’s who grew up at Force Forge).

Gill and her team would like to offer a warm welcome to everyone to pop in for a Zoom cuppa and a chat. They would like to extend the cafe to more local people as well as local Quakers and Rookhow supporters, so please spread the word. You don’t have to stay for the full hour: just pop in to say hello.

Here’s the new link:


Meeting ID: 731 0012 8253

Passcode: 1725

Good luck to Gill and friends. Please support them in this new development!
