Coffee in the Park – 7th May 2011

We had a good morning for our first Coffee in the Park of 2011.

Following heavy overnight rain, we gathered at Parkside at 10am for a short time of prayer.  After this, with the weather improving, we decided to set up the marquee, Parkside sign and tables in Kidwells park, behind Parkside, as planned.

This would be our final chance to practice setting up the marquee before Maidenhead Carnival on June 11th, and all went without any problems.

We decided to put the ‘Free tea and coffee’ banner out in the park facing the town centre so it would be eye-catching as people walked through the park, rather than on the front wall.

Various friends came and joined us during the morning and we had a number of other good conversations with people in the park, of all ages.  In addition, the weather stayed fine for the whole morning which meant that there was no need to dry out the marquee afterwards.

It was an encouraging start to the summer and it’s hard to believe that the next time we’re out in the park will be the day of Maidenhead Carnival.  We have much to organise before then!
