The coffee shop was started about 1989 by the Rev. Keith Ellwood (the then Vicar of St Giles’) and his wife Barbara. The aim was to give the community a meeting place once a week where people could come for a cup of coffee and a chat, meet their neighbours, buy and sell eggs and cakes and vegetables in season from their gardens.
Funds from this have traditionally gone to support the maintenance of the fabric of the church and graveyard for now and future generations. 10% of what is sold goes to the church and the rest goes to the sellers of the goods.
None of this would be possible without our dedicated band of volunteers who run the Coffee Shop on a rota basis (more volunteers are always very welcome) and especially those volunteers who set up the Hall early, behind the scenes before the morning begins, and count the money etc.
Once a month the draw for the 100 club takes place at the Coffee Shop. There are two cash prizes each month. The more tickets we sell (£12 per ticket per annum) the bigger the prizes. This was set up by the Sandham Hall Committee to raise funds for the upkeep of our lovely Victorian Village Hall.
