Devon Dumpling community coffee morning

Torbay Weekly

Back in November, while I was out walking around Shiphay as the new Community builder, I met a local man Tony, who told me how he was really wanting a group to meet up with every week, to make new friends and discuss local community issues and hopefully with good homemade cake.

Tony was one of many local residents who had said the same to me. I approached the new manager of the Devon Dumpling, Debbie, and she was super supportive of the idea, privding some wonderful coffee and homemade cake from Shiphay resident Lyn Williams.

Councillor Andrew Barrand and local resident Stewart Godwin spoke with the group, as we discussed things like Jubilee Celebrations in Kitson Park and starting up a local walking group.

Come along and join us for the Community coffee mornings - every Tuesday 11am-12.30pm at the Devon Dumpling.
