Chatty Café – find a Chatty Café near you and pop in for chat with locals You may have heard us mention before that a Cigna study showed Loneliness was found to have the same impact on mortality as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. We chat to Glenys Reid who since 2019 has been passionately setting up Chatty Cafes in Australia. A ‘Have a Chat’ Table creates a space for people to talk; whether it is for five minutes or an hour of good friendly conversation, while you drink a brew of your choice and/or eat a snack or meal. The aim of Chatty Café Australia is to help connect communities and increase social interactions by getting people chatting – either in their favourite local neighbourhood social venues or while travelling through other Aussie communities to meet the local folk.
