A program that aims to reduce loneliness by having people chat in cafes is developing.
It was founded by Alexandra Hoskyn, who after a miserable day in a cafe with her toddler son noticed that no one was talking to each other.
She found that by introducing “Chatter & Natter” signs on cafe tables, it created space for people to talk.
Now Tesco Café in Glossop has joined the national scheme and will have a Chat and Natter table to help encourage people to talk to each other and bring people together if they feel like chatting.
