The Rural Coffee Caravan started up in 2003 to tackle rural isolation and promote community spirit. The Project was the brainchild of the Rev Canon Sally Fogden. Sally and some colleagues purchased a caravan, gathered together some relevant information, made some cakes and took the caravan into rural Suffolk. The project was a great success, and the Rural Coffee Caravan was born.
The information provided by the Coffee Caravan has helped many people gain access to the benefits, services and information they need. The Coffee Caravan also helps foster community spirit by bringing people together in a relaxed social atmosphere to just chat and get to know each other better.
The Rural Coffee Caravan visits Lidgate during the summer months and everyone is welcome.
