In April 2017 David Butler gave a presentation 'Walking the South Tyne'. It was a very interesting and evocative talk.


In November 2016 Christopher Barlow attended and gave a presentation about his voluntary work in Kenyan schools.


In October 2016, the Coffee Club met for a very interesting presentation “Working with Chalk Paint - Autentico” held by Sylvia from Penny Pieces. For various reasons, our number was lower than usual, but several members put on their pinnies and had a go painting the items brought along by Sylvia. It was extremely heartening to hear how old and failing furniture can be brought back to a colourful life.

On Wednesday 20th May 2015 the Coffee Club visited Elsdon and had a tour of St. Cuthbert's Church. Photos of the day (taken by Andrew McNeil) are shown below.

On Wednesday 23rd September 2015 the Coffee Club had a splendid evening listening to Brian Burnie who started up an amazing charity, Daft as a Brush. He brought his new ambulance, which even has a child's and a baby's seat. Read more about the charity at http://www.daftasabrush.org.uk/
