Jelly – Work, chat, collaborate….

Self employed?  Work from home?  Fancy a change where you can still do some work?


Whitchurch Jelly is a co-working day held at The Coffee Barn at Holly Farm Garden Centre on the A49 near Prees on the first Tuesday every month 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.

A chance to get of the house/office and work alongside other like-minded business people for a day for FREE. The Coffee Barn offers excellent, locally sourced food and home-made cakes, served in a tranquil setting surrounded by plants, with free internet access and the opportunity to work off lunch browsing many locally grown flowers, shrubs and trees.

Share conversations and enjoy Aroma Coffee and a Maynard’s bacon bap whilst catching up on some work on your laptop.

You can also have a wander around and enjoy the colours and scents of the many beautiful plants – pansies and petunias, polyanthus, pinks.

Take advantage of some expert advice from Jonathan Allen who has many years experience with growing plants – particularly trees and shrubs – so if you’ve always wanted a magnolia or camellia, he can advise the best location to plant them and how to look after them.


What’s the format?

The basic format is generally the same for all Jelly days:

  1. turn up with a laptop
  2. take a seat
  3. do some work
  4. enjoy some intelligent conversation
  5. go home

It is FREE to attend, but it is reasonable to expect that attendees will buy drinks and lunch during the day.
