Coffee mornings are a special event in Dersingham. They are a regular feature on the first Friday of each month in St Nicholas’ Church Hall (which is celebrating its centenary in serving Dersingham village in 2012) and are more than just a quick cup of coffee and a biscuit. If have only managed to attend two or three of these coffee mornings in my more than 10 years of living in the area but each time I am amazed at how well supported they are. I shouldn’t be surprised though as each coffee morning has so much going on.
There is always a wide variety of second hand books to browse through to suit all tastes and all ages. Just looking is interesting enough but the icing on the cake has to be finding that particular book you have been on the look out for amongst them! In addition, there are always stalls selling goods like lovely fresh home-made preserves, cakes, sausage rolls and pastries. The stalls do not stop there either – you will often find bric a brac (of course) but in addition you could find stalls offering great gift ideas such as jewellery, clothing and accessories.
I always seem to find something of interest to purchase and I do enjoy sitting at the “banquet table” in the centre and chatting to other coffee morning guests. The atmosphere is alive with the buzz of social interaction and is a great way to feel you belong within the community. So if you have been thinking about getting out and coming to one of these lovely events do not delay as you are missing out.
