New community cafe for Salisbury

Salisbury City Council has launched a new community cafe to give people a place for tea, talk and to ask for advice about a range of issues.

Run by Salisbury’s Communities Team, the new drop in café will run weekly at the Salisbury Baptist Church on Brown St.

There will be the chance to have warm drinks, meet new people and have conversations in the heart of the city centre. Everyone is welcome to pop in for a FREE beverage and a chat.

As part of the cafe, each week a different local organisations will attend, addressing issues such as housing, mental health and parenting. The first theme will be debt and money management and the team from Christians Against Poverty will be there on Tuesday 18th January to chat through the services they offer.

Sarah Gregson, Communities Manager for Salisbury City Council, said: “The Communities team have been running Your Salisbury Pantry since April 2021 and we love a chat with our members, but there just isn’t the space in our shop. So, we are creating this café space, just over the road at the Baptist Church, to give us the space and time for members to get to know us and each other.

"But why stop there? – this café is for anyone in Salisbury who wants to join us and we will invite some of the many wonderful organisations in Salisbury who might be able to offer the right type of support or advice for someone, at just the right moment.”    

The café will run every Tuesday morning between 10am and midday at the Salisbury Baptist Church, 41 Brown St, Salisbury, SP1 2AS. 

If you have any enquiries, or are an organisation who would like to offer advice at the cafe, please call the Communities Team on 01722 417100.
