The cafe now opens on Wednesdays and Fridays at Redlynch Village Hall.
Tables will be set up under the entrance canopy and you can then proceed to the hall to book your items in.  Cafe facilities (at well spread out tables) will be available - and the usual cheerful staff will be on hand (using the stage area & rear workshop) to advise and carry out ‘While You Wait’ repairs.  15 laptops have been supplied to Trafalgar School and although no more laptops are being sought, if good ones are donated, they will be 'cleaned up' and passed on.
