Squire’s Garden Centres is one of the latest companies to join the Chatty Café scheme.
The Chatty Café is a great way of encouraging people to talk to others. The scheme is the brainchild of Alexandra Hoskyn, who founded it after a miserable day at a supermarket café with her infant son, where she noticed that no one was talking to each other. She found that by simply putting ‘Chatter & Natter’ signs on tables in cafes it created a space for people to talk.
Alexandra Hoskyn, Founder of The Chatty Café said, “The Chatty Café is thrilled to welcome Squire’s to our scheme. Their lovely café bars are a perfect setting for Chatter & Natter tables. Anyone can join in and chat over a coffee – if you’re on your own, in a couple, with a friend, young people, old people and anyone in between. It’s just about having good old fashioned human interaction and the relaxed environment of Squire’s Café Bars will hopefully allow for lots of happy chatting!”
Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres commented, “In this age of social media it’s so important to make an effort to talk to others face to face. So for those who would like a bit of real social interaction simply sit at a ‘Chatter & Natter’ table at Squire’s and you can talk to other customers. I believe a short conversation with another human can really brighten your day. Everyone’s welcome, and it’s a great way to meet people in your local community.”
There will be Chatter & Natter tables every Tuesday morning at all sixteen of Squire’s Café Bars, plus other days throughout the week too - simply look out for the signs on the tables.
