Coffee morning 18th March

24 02 2013

Our next Coffee Morning will be on Monday 18th March, 2013, starting at 10.30 in the Travellers’ Rest.  Admission is £2. There will be the usual good company, coffee and tasty cakes.  In addition, we will show you how to reduce your fuel bills.

Household energy bills have risen by almost 160% since 2004.  Ann Robinson from Uswitch claims that the “rocketing bills show little sign of slowing down”. If you are concerned about the rising prices of gas and electricity, there will be the opportunity to hear about the Council’s Yorswitch energy switching scheme over coffee. We will be on hand to show you how to register with the scheme and discuss what happens next.

According to the Yorswitch website:

“You could save hundreds of pounds on your gas and electricity bills by joining together with the residents of Barnsley in the town’s first Government-funded collective energy switching scheme.

When many people group together, they can get energy companies to bid for the lowest price to win their custom. Barnsley Council and Berneslai Homes are working with other Yorkshire areas to pool together as many residents as possible who want to find lower energy prices.”

The Barnsley Chronicle (22 February, 2013) reported that residents taking part in a similar energy switching scheme last June saved an average of £230 per year.

If you have never switched energy suppliers before, we will also point out any cheaper suppliers as shown on the uswitch website.

Please bring recent gas and electricity bills with you to the coffee morning if you wish to see if you can reduce your gas and electricity bills.





Coffee morning 5th March, 2012

21 03 2012

Once again, on Monday 5th March, 2012, we turned the back room at the Traveller’s Rest into the Pogmoor Residents cafe as we held our latest coffee morning. As usual, the room was packed with approximately 30 people enjoying a coffee, cake and a fun quiz based on cockney rhyming slang.

Harvest Coffee Morning


 This coffee morning started differently.  Firstly, Tom welcomed everyone and told a story of the origins of the harvest festival.   Then the vicar kindly gave a blessing.and finally everyone tucked in to enjoy the various home-made cakes, buns and sausage rolls donated by local residents.





Pogmoor Residents – our first event!

24 06 2011

Our first coffee morning, and our first-ever social event, took place on Monday 18th July, 2011 at the Travellers’ Rest, Pogmoor.  We were delighted at the turnout.  The function room was full, with approx 50 local residents in attendance.  

Many thanks to the committee members and friends who baked and donated the delicious cakes.

There were plenty of refreshments on offer.  Tea and coffee plus biscuits cost £2, with as many free refills as anyone wanted.  There was also a raffle, with particular interest being shown in the bird box made by Tom.

This social raised approximately £95 of much-needed funds for the Association.  Many thanks to everyone who came along and made this coffee morning such a success.  


Fifteen residents gave us some feedback about this event and here it is:  14 felt the venue was good or very good.   12 were very happy with the tea or coffee.  All 15 were impressed by the friendliness of the gathering.  All 15 enjoyed the coffee morning.  A few people suggested some improvements.  4 felt that a bigger room would help (next time we will have tables in the bar if needed) and a couple suggested advertising more (which we shall also try to do).  Finally,  we asked them to suggest future events and 7 replied as follows:  antiques roadshow valuations; coffee morning every other month; BBQ; weekend family events; lunch or meal event; beetle drive; quiz evening.

If you have any suggestions regarding future events, please post them below.
