People from Uphill can make new friends at a pop-up café in the village.

Uphill Village Society holds the social meetings every Monday from 2pm to 4pm in Victory Hall, in Westfield Road.

The group has been running for almost a year and attracts people of all ages who are keen to make new friends or just enjoy a chat.

Leigh Morris, from the village society, said: "We try to encourage locals to come along.

"We get quite a few older people and we also get a lot of parents.

"We thought that the hall was available a couple of times a week and we wanted to make better use of it.

"It's just a social meeting, we keep it nice and simple and people can come in and have a chat and a piece of cake."
