The King’s House Coffee Shop (KHCS) on the High Street is an established part of the life of Knaphill. The Coffee Shop was set up by Knaphill Churches in 1995 to offer a place where people can relax and enjoy tasty, freshly prepared snacks and meals; as a place for refreshment……refreshment for body, mind and spirit. KHCS aims to offer a quiet oasis for those with busy lives. Everyone is made welcome: from families with babies and young children to senior citizens (and all the ages in between), staff and volunteers try to make sure there is time and space for all their customers at The King’s House.
The Coffee Shop is a registered charity, supported by volunteers, serving the community rather than looking for profit. In the current economic climate all Knaphill shops need your support, so remember to ‘shop local’ and for the KHCS there are two special ways that you can help over the coming weeks.
The first is by donating some of your surplus allotment and garden produce for community cooking. If you have too many tomatoes, a bumper crop of beans, pounds of plums, cooking or dessert apples or any other ‘extras’ please call in to the shop and share some of them with KHCS. They can be used this month to prepare meals and keep costs down, or for use in future by freezing or for making jams, preserves and chutney; everything you donate can be put to good use.
The second is by going along to the Coffee Shop’s fundraising event an ‘Auction of Gifts and Talents’ on Saturday 2nd October, at the Knaphill Methodist Church Hall (viewing from 6.30 and the Auction starting at 7.00 pm). See the attached PDF for details – KHCS_Auction. There are already over a hundred super gifts and promises which have been kindly donated by local businesses and organisations, including a round of golf for two at Chobham Golf Club, a brand new Air Hockey Table and four tickets for Woking Football Club.
Admission to the Auction is free. There is an enjoyable evening on offer with a Ploughman’s Supper and refreshments available to purchase at the Interval.
You can find out more by calling in to the Coffee Shop on 14 High Street, Knaphill, or telephone: 01483 799758.
