The café area alongside the library is a great place for friends to meet and for people to work. TG’s café is run by Community Centre staff and volunteers and is open from 9am-6pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 9am-7pm on Wednesday and Friday and 9am-4.30pm at weekends and Bank Holidays, serving hot and cold drinks and snacks.
The longer hours and new offerings are in response to customer requests. There are board games and puzzles available if you want to use this space to meet and socialise in that way.
Please note that food can be made to order, so if you need large amounts, or want something specific, please call in or ring 01608 811878 at least a day in advance.
Aimed at retired people, but everyone is welcome. Please come along for a drink and a chat with others. Board games are available and we can organise an impromptu quiz if enough people there want one. Special price for hot drinks (£1 for a tea or coffee).
Tea selection from Organic Pukka Teas includes: Three Mint, Three Ginger, Chamomile Vanilla and Manuka Honey, Love, Spiced Chai as well as Rooibos, Green tea and Earl Grey. Decaf coffee, soya & skimmed milk are available. All our teas, coffees and hot chocolate are Fairtrade.
Tap water is free – please feel free to ask for a refill for your water bottle, or help yourself from the jug on the counter.
Charlbury Art Society has completed the first phase of a Community Art Project to make and install swoops of swifts. The individual birds have been made from mosaic and the first swoop has been placed on the Nine Acres Pavilion wall in our courtyard outside the library. They look fantastic!
Margie Glasgow has been awarded a British Empire Medal in the 2019 Honours list for her contributions to the Thomas Gifford Trust and other local charities. Margie was instrumental in driving forward the Community Centre project and we are very grateful to her. This award is truly well-deserved.
TG's cafe is now offering baked potatoes at lunch time, with a choice of fillings: cheese, baked beans (or both), tuna and sweetcorn with mayo. Why not stay for lunch after your sporting activities, or drop in for a tasty, warming lunch?
We'd love to reunite you with your possessions! Most items will be kept for 14 days. Valuables such as watches, jewellery and expensive sports equipment will be kept for 28 days. Each Wednesday between 1 - 5pm unclaimed items will be displayed in the centre and can be purchased for a nominal amount. After this, they will be given to charity.
The next quiz night will be Wed 23rd January, set by Ant and Jessie Horn. The café and bar open at 7.30pm for a prompt start at 8pm. Priced only £5 per player, these quizzes are usually a sell-out so get your tickets soon from reception. More details here. A big thank you to Tom Smith for hosting our Christmas quiz.
