Come inside from the rain & warm yourself with some Hygge! ☕☕☕

Every Monday morning in term-time,

9am to 12pm

Fr Johannes is in the building on Monday mornings – pop in and introduce yourself! There is tea and coffee and usually it’s no problem to find a biscuit as well!

Dolly is mostly around, but she has a little cage she goes into if there are other people. She knows that means usually a biscuit for her as well…

Hygge (/ˈh(j)uːɡə/Danish: [ˈhykə]Norwegian: [ˈhŷɡːə]) is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment. As a cultural category with its sets of associated practices hygge has more or less the same meanings in Danish and Norwegian, but the notion is more central in Denmark than in Norway.[1] The emphasis on hygge as a core part of Danish culture is a recent phenomenon, dating to the late 20th century.
