See You Tonight! Here’s An Update From Lynda Jones

We hope you’re feeling thirsty!

See you later for the tea tasting and talk!

Lynda Jones : Hello there, I’ve decided to do a “question and answer” session about my work. I felt that would b more helpful than choosing one subject that might not suit all. Please note though, I can’t be specific about your own personal health issues outside the consultation setting. I look forward to meeting you 😃 xxx

Event details are here.

See You Thursday! Here’s A Poem About Tea

Not long until the tea tasting and talk! What blends are your favourite?

Click here for more information on the event. 

Here’s a poem about tea from our columnist Dave Horn:

The kettle boils
Signalling the end
Of recent toils
Time for tea!
A dear one calls
And from all around they descend

Just one cup of tea
Is the source of such glee!
A time to rest and share
Make it herbal
And it’s even healthy
Hearts, minds and bodies on the mend

That is the beauty of tea
Rooted in simplicity
It has such capacity
To bring happiness and laughter
A good old catch-up
Or debrief post disaster

Seemingly infinite in it’s forms
A good tea pot
Every house should adorn
Bring out an infuser
And you’re stepping
Into tea porn

Just hot water
Dried leaves
Perhaps milk
But add sugar
And you’re
Of a bad ilk

But that is tea’s beauty
Who am I to prescribe or judge
Infinite forms
And infinite variations
We all have our particular
Tea related fixations

A shared experience
Your unique expression
For times good
For times bad
Tea is a gift and tool
Bring life whatever it would

Join Us For A Tea Tasting

We are very excited to announce we will be hosting another tea tasting! We really enjoyed the last one, and love tea perhaps a little too much, so thought we’d do it again!

We’ll have a range of teas, some we’ve bought and some that have been blended by Cantiaci members in-house at Kipps’ Alehouse, Folkestone. Expect delicious teas and leave your tasting notes!

This time we have invited a guest speaker, local herbalist Lynda Jones! Lynda will be speaking about healthy living through herbalism and the power of herbs!

Join us at Kipps’ Alehouse, Folkestone on Thursday 9th February at 7pm for some amazing tea inspired times!  Below is our poster as well as some photos from last year!

Folkestone Soup 4, 12th November 2016

Facebook Event

It’s a simple concept: people turn up, pay £5 at the door, and listen to three or four people pitch an idea to improve the local community. Pitchers may not talk for more than four minutes, and must definitely not use PowerPoint. The audience can then ask a maximum of four questions.

With the presentations over, SOUP IS SERVED. People mull over the ideas and then they vote on their favourite. The winner gets to take home all the money taken at the door and use it to fund their plan, with the promise they will come back four months later to report on their progress – the next meeting will be in February.

The ideas bidding for funding tonight could include a Guerilla Gardening team, a ‘Teenagers meet Grandmas/dads’ project, birdboxes for Payer’s Park or a support group for helping people facing repossession.
DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA THAT WE COULD FUND? If you have an idea for a small project that would benefit Folkestone’s community and environment then share on this page or email folkestonesoup@gmail,com and it will be considered for inclusion in our inaugural meeting (or failing that future meetings)!

For more details about the genesis of this project go to http://detroitsoup.com/about/, which will tell you about the Detroit project that inspired this Folkestone version.

See you there!
