Brief History:

  • First opened on Friday the 20th November 1981, under the old name “Drop In” at the rear of the Neston Town Hall. It was run by Age Concern Neston and open to older people only.
  • In 1999, re-located to its new premises on the re-developed Neston Methodist Church & Community Centre.
  • Re-launched on Friday 10th January 2014 as “The Welcome Café” to reflect the all welcome policy, where everyone is warmly welcomed.
  • Staffed entirely by Volunteers drawn from the Neston Methodist Church and the wider community, Welcome Café aims to carry on providing a warm and friendly place for a chat and a bite to eat for all those who come into Neston on Friday Market days.
