Blend is our pop-up cafe, open every Wednesday during term time between 4:00 and 6:00pm in St Mary's Church, Goudhurst for young people in school years 7 to 10.
Offering a space to spend time with local friends, both new and old in a safe and welcoming hub in the village. There is so much to do including chilling, table tennis, games, music, craft activities and even the chance to catch up on homework with a great team of leaders who are willing to help and support the young people who come each week.
We always have snacks (both healthy and of the cake variety), toast and mikshakes and a voucher system to make sure they still eat their dinner when they all get home!!!
There is a £1 entry fee, and then everything is free.
