This friendly coffee stop is in the church of St Aidan’s, Morebattle .The church (deconsecrated) is currently being restored. We are a CIC – a Community Interest Company. This means we are a Not for Profit organisation. Proceeds are used for restocking; excess goes to continuing renovations of the building. In the long term, proceeds go back to the community.
We are launching this appeal because we need to cater for bigger groups, we need more seating, a kitchen to enable us to provide our own food; we need good toilet facilities.
We provide a service to the local community and tourists, especially to St Cuthbert’s Way walkers as we are ideally situated on the Walk itself, providing rest before the hill climb to Yetholm.
Plans for the building have been drawn up.
The aim is to raise £70,000, the current estimate of the proposed improvement.
