The Coffee Pot (re-opens Wednesday 26th May 2021)
The Coffee Pot started in October, 2011, to provide a meeting place for Village people, with refreshments at “not for profit” rates. Increasingly, visitors from outside the village are being welcomed, and we have been asked also provide a venue for other, one-off events.
Although we operate at rock bottom prices, we do make a small profit, and this too has shaped us. Now, we not only provide a place for friends to meet, and a source of a little revenue for the Village Hall, but each month, we draw the name of one of our volunteers out of a hat – and this person can designate a favourite charity for a donation. Everyone is welcome, and everyone, just by coming, adds something to the Village and its Hall. We meet on Wednesday mornings between 10.30am and mid-day.
Coffee and cake for just £2? That’s not all that’s on offer at the Coffee Pot! If you pluck up courage and join us on Wednesday mornings at 10.30 at the Village Hall – and if it is your first visit – our famous bottomless pot of Traidcraft coffee or tea will be free. And it doesn’t stop there. Everyone is welcome at the Coffee Pot; we have a box of toys for the ankle-biters, and an opportunity to meet friends old and young for everyone else.
We support Traidcraft by using their products and having a small selection of their products on sale; then there’s Jemma’s jams and chutneys, second-hand books at 50p a time – and on the sales table, an opportunity to sell any bits and bobs you want to pass on to someone else. On the second week of each month, our friends from Future Farms in Martin supply fresh seasonal vegetables, frozen meats, and other items from Martin shop.
The Coffee Pot doesn’t aim to make a profit, but when we do we give it away! Our volunteer helpers take it in turns to nominate a favourite cause, and this time, Cathy Godber nominated Alabare, a charity for local homeless people. So, if you are at home on a Wednesday, grab a friend and make a beeline for the Village Hall. You’ll be sure of a friendly welcome!
Damerham Badminton Club (currently closed, hopefully will re-open in September 2021))
Damerham Badminton Club meets in Damerham Village Hall every Tuesday evening from September to May, from 8 pm.
We are a friendly, social club who play for enjoyment and the opportunity to get and keep fit. We are a mixed group in terms of age, sex and badminton skills.
We would welcome new members to join us
Every year the Village Hall Committee holds a free Christmas ‘get-together’ usually around the second Saturday in December when all village residents, past & present, village friends, really anyone who has a connection to our Hall, are invited for mulled wine and refreshments (all free!).
There is also a HUGE raffle! the village photo collection will be on display as always.
This event is held as a ‘thank you’ to the village for their continuing support of the hall. We really enjoy this warm & friendly event.
We also have a ‘youngsters’ area with some festive activities and crafts.
Sadly we were not able to hold this special event in 2020, this was much missed by all who are normally involved. This is the first time in 25 years we have not held this event.
The Village Hall is host to several Jumble Sales throughout the year.
Covid restrictions allowing the next Jumble Sale is booked for Saturday 18th September 2021 at 2pm.
