Quay Time at Woodbridge Quay Church

Quay Time at Woodbridge Quay Church

Quay Time is a joint project with Woodbridge Quay Church. This community oriented project enables people to meet over tea (or coffee) and cakes to enjoy each other’s company and to organise further events and activities. These afternoons themselves may feature quizzes, board games or visiting speakers and offer an opportunity to arrange social activities throughout the year. Sessions are held on the third Wednesday of each month in Woodbridge Quay Church, which is fully accessible. Transport can be provided for anyone who may otherwise have difficulty attending. Participation has been encouraging and we look forward to welcoming new members.

For details on Quay Time, please call Lion Stella Benton on 01728 561379
