WALKERS on the Pennine Way on Mondays until early September might like to take a short detour and enjoy refreshments in the Quaker Meeting House in Airton.

A pop-up café will be open from 10 am to 4 pm in the barn next to the Quaker Meeting House by the side of the village green in Airton. The Town End Tearooms in Airton are closed on Mondays, except bank holidays, so the pop-up cafe will be an alternative for a limited period every Monday until September 4.

It will offer tea, coffee, soft drinks, packets of biscuits and home-baked cakes for locals and visitors alike. Donations will be invited to cover the cost of providing the provisions, with any surplus going to support the ancient and historic Quaker Meeting House.
