News in Brief

Evesham Editorial 8th Aug, 2019   0

EVESHAM firefighters will be opening the doors to the town’s fire station during an open day on Abbey Road.

The free event will take place on Saturday from 11am to 4pm with a host of activities on offer for all the family.

A demonstration by the Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) team and a chance to meet the USAR Search and Rescue dog will be among the entertainment.

Visitors will have the chance to have a first-hand look at the impressive equipment and vehicles at the station, as well as to meet the local firefighters, and have a ride in a fire engine.

ALL those in need of appliance assistance from volunteers at the town’s Repair Cafe.

Ahead of the next event tomorrow (Saturday) 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.
