Meet Up Mondays, except this one will be Wednesdays, starts at 10am on January 12, as part of the Rural Coffee Caravan and Suffolk Good Neighbours and everyone is encouraged t cam along and join in.
Owners of the Bull, Gemma and Paul Chenery, have endured a rocky couple of years but have battled on through and continue to get involved in community initiatives to encourage the pub being the hub in their part of he village.
They introduced the Pub Desk scheme to Suffolk, where those who usually work from home, or like to get out of the office, can hire a table at the pub and enjoy free wi-fi, coffee and a light lunch, for just £10.
