Evesham Editorial 5th Nov, 2018   0

A RALLYING call has gone out to all those in Evesham in need of appliance assistance from volunteers at the town’s Repair Cafe.

Ahead of the next event next Saturday (November 10) at Evesham Methodist Church, Vale residents have been reminded the service can repair most appliances.

Should the merry band of volunteers be unable to repair the item, many are knowledgable enough about providing advice and support to guide shoppers in the right direction.

A team of electricians, seamstresses and other specialists are on hand to fix items such as toasters, lamps, hair dryers, clothes, bikes, toys, crockery and much more.

The scheme, which originally started in Amsterdam in 2010, is run by volunteers at the same venue each month and has been going strong since 2014.

Any repairs will be carried out for free with organisers requesting just a donation to cover the costs of the volunteers.

The event will run from 10am to 2pm.

Call Tony Piper on 01386 300478 for more information.

A QUIZ night is being held to raise funds for Evesham Vale Cardiac Rehab.

The event is being held at Raphael’s Restaurant at Hampton Ferry next Friday (November 9) from 7.45pm.

Teams of up to four people can enter at a cost of £5 per person and a buffet and raffle will also be on the menu.

Call Coun Gerry O’Donnell on 01386 442886 for more.

AN AFTERNOON of music was on offer as the congregation of Evesham’s Methodist Church welcomed the Salvation Army South West Fellowship Band for the Churches Together in Evesham and District Songs of Praise.

In addition to the many hymns and songs the band played several individual pieces and the afternoon was made complete by 16-year-old soloist Naomi Blowers who sang several well known spiritual and gospel songs.

The band members, many of whom travelled from afar a field as Devon will be back in Evesham on November 17 to support the church’s fund-raising event for the Vale of Evesham School’s Sensory Room appeal.

Churches Together in Evesham and District is made up of ten churches which include churches in Hampton and Harvington.

AFTER the clocks went back on Sunday, West Mercia Police is reminding its communities not to let burglars take advantage of the longer darker nights.

Most people will enjoy an extra hour this weekend as British Summer Time is left behind for another year and head firmly into the autumn and winter months, but officers want to make sure the time is not ruined for some by burglars and thieves who use the cover of darkness to commit their crime.
