Coronation Day Lazy Breakfast
Saturday 6th May 2023, 9.15am-12.15pm, Love’s Farm House
On Saturday 6th May, Lazy Breakfast will be celebrating with a Coronation Special!
As well as our normal cafe in the foyer, we’ll be turning the meeting room into a mini cinema and showing the opening parades and the Coronation Ceremony on the big screen. You can watch the whole thing, dip in and out, or just pop in for a coffee in the foyer to start your bank holiday weekend.
As well as our usual Lazy Breakfast menu, we’ll be bringing back bacon butties for one day only! Or go traditional and order a scone with clotted cream and jam with your cuppa.
The cafe will open at 9.15am as normal, the Coronation Ceremony starts at 11am, and last orders at the cafe will be 12.15pm. If the ceremony is still going on, we’ll keep the building open and the projector on until it finishes.
Don’t forget that Love’s Farm will be getting involved in the Big Help Out for the King’s Coronation on bank holiday Monday 8th May. Keep an eye on the Love’s Farm Community Association Facebook page and website for more details.
Hope to see you there!

The Hall Gets a Refresh thanks to Tesco & GENCO Construction Services
We’d like to say a huge thank you to Tesco and GENCO Construction Services for repainting the Love’s Farm House hall!
When Tesco planned their refurbishment of the Tesco Express store on Love’s Farm, they reached out to us to find out whether Love’s Farm House could benefit from any redecorating at the same time. We were more than happy to say yes!
The paint in the hall was looking very scuffed and faded. Most of the hall hadn’t been repainted since the building opened in 2015 because the walls were too high to access, even with a ladder.
Tesco and GENCO Construction kindly provided a team of workers, as well as a scissor lift, to repaint the hall from top to bottom. They went above and beyond the call of duty by fitting the work into the gaps in our schedule so that none of our activities were disrupted.
The work was finished just in time for everyone to enjoy at the Valentine’s Disco!
Jenny Bishop, General Manager of Love’s Farm House, said “we are incredibly grateful to Tesco and GENCO for supporting us with this project and helping to maintain this great space for everyone in our community to use.”
Have a look at our What’s On Guide or Events page to find out when you can come along and make the most of our refreshed hall.
