06 Jun Local farmer’s cafe launches to help combat rural isolation and loneliness
Uttlesford based charity Council for Voluntary Service Uttlesford
(CVSU) has launched a new weekly Farmer’s Community Cafe for those who
are or who have been involved in working in the agricultural sector
The new weekly farming social group takes place every Friday morning
between 10.00 a.m. and 12.00 p.m. The non-profit venture is part of
the charity’s wider work to combat rural isolation and loneliness,
particularly among the retired and elderly through the Community Builder
programme. On offer is free one-to-one support for older community
members and local groups, as well as assisting older people in exploring
and accessing social activities.
Cammas Hall Farm, a family owned and run business in beautiful
countryside on the Essex/Hertfordshire border is the venue for the
weekly meetings, and they have kindly made their Tea Barn available for
this venture to bring agricultural workers together.
