Repair Café not returning to Exmouth in 2020
PUBLISHED: 17:00 28 August 2020
Exmouth’s repair café will not be reopening this year, organisers have confirmed.
The monthly events at All Saints Church hall, in Exeter Road, offered people a chance to get advice from volunteers on how to fix their items in a social atmosphere.
However, following the coronavirus outbreak, the monthly cafes had to be cancelled.
Organisers have now confirmed the events will not return in 2020 but the situation will be reviewed in the New Year.
Jean Holden, coordinator of Exmouth Repair Café, said: “The volunteers really miss the monthly openings.
“It’s not just the actual repairs being important but the social and café side as well.
“We enjoy meeting and chatting to the folk who come in and hearing about the stories behind the items in need of a fix.”
Anyone who wants advice for broken items should post details on the Facebook page with supporting photographs if possible.
