Foxton Men’s Breakfast meets in Foxton Village Hall usually on the third Saturday of most months for companionship and enlightenment. It’s a place to enjoy a traditional English or Continental style breakfast in friendly company with good talks and general discussion. It’s an opportunity to meet new and old friends and reach out to others in our local community. A donation is usually made to a charity of our speaker’s choice as all talks are made voluntarily.
We ask for a donation of about £7 to cover costs of food and hire of the hall. Any remaining sums are paid to the chosen charity.
The Breakfast has been running for many years now and is attended by men and women (our guests). The men cook the food (sourced through our local shop), wash up and support one another. It is managed by a small team of volunteers from Foxton and the surrounding villages and is sponsored by the Anglican Four Churches Benefice and the Methodist Church.
Our speaker in October is Brian Butcher, an energy assessor with Solar Therm UK, who will talk about making the most of government grants and incentive schemes for improving energy efficiency in domestic dwellings. The talk will be in general terms and attendees should hopefully learn more about what can be done to improve energy efficiency in their own home.
