Once again we are holding The Lounge Bake Off.

Everyone is encouraged to enter their bakes for this years Great Lounge Bake Off, taking place at the Picnic in the Park on May 28th!

You can enter in three different categories – Best Overall Cake, Best Decorated and Best Taste. There is also a separate category for best Junior Baker (up to 16yrs).

We appreciate whatever home-baked goodies you can make; so cakes, biscuits or cupcakes are welcome.

It is free to enter, just turn up on the day between 10.00am and 12.00 noon and bring your bake to the Lounge tent - where we will register you and also be selling tea & coffee.

There are prizes for the winners from each category, which will be announced during the afternoon. We will also sell off the cakes to raise extra funds for youth at the Lounge.

Please bring a cake - even if you don't wish to enter - we really appreciate any cakes or biscuits to sell.

All the money from the cakes you bake support the Lounge. Thanks to the sale of drinks and everyone's baking efforts last year we raised over £1,000 for the Lounge.

Did you know you can buy loaf of bread AND support the Lounge? How easy is that?

We have just received some fantastic news: The Lounge has been chosen to receive funding from Co-op Local Community Fund. This means that for the next 6 months every time you buy Co op branded product and service, from buying a loaf of bread to planning a funeral, 1% of your spend could go to supporting The Lounge. 
But this will only happen if you:
 1. Become a Co‑op member, if you aren't already. Go into the store or go online to make your application and get your card.
2. Select the Lounge (Alvechurch Communities Together) cause by signing into your online account.
Supporting The Lounge couldn't be easier! Did you know it costs £24,000 a year to run the Lounge and 100’s of hours of volunteer time? If every person in the village bought a loaf of Co op bread, every week, for the next 6 months, that would cover our running costs for a year! Without community support such as the Co op Fund, we simply would not exist.
The Lounge wishes to say a huge thank you to all its supporters and volunteers. This new funding from the Co op highlights the great work that they do to support many local causes.

We will be providing food and beverages and the youth will be holding their own "special" stand. Drop down on the day, have a chat about what we do, enjoy the food and drink and support your very local charity.

You can find more about the event at

Failing that, just turn up and enjoy the atmosphere.


One year on from its emergency meeting hear how The Lounge has managed to survive and the role you can play in its future.

In a relaxed setting, with canapes provided, there will be two sessions..

7pm and 8pm....in each session we’ll share:-

- a brief history of the charity
- introduce some of the volunteers who run The Lounge
- understand the steps taken last year to save The Lounge
- hear how funding and your donations are used for the community
- listen to the great progress made with our Youth work

And....once we've inspired you with our work they'll be a chance to ask how you can contribute to the future of our community charity.

So if you've ever wanted to learn more, have enjoyed one of our breakfasts, have read our posts, have played The Lounge Lottery, if your children use the Youth Diner or if you want to help sustain a community charity right in the heart of our village come along.

Please let us know if you are coming and which time (7pm or 8pm) so we can cater....
