In a bid to break the lockdown blues, YES Brixham has recently launched its very own, free-to-access community coffee morning.
The coffee morning, aimed at people of all ages, will be meeting every Friday morning at 11am until midday via the online platform Zoom.
These sessions have been planned as a part of YES Brixhams response to Covid-19 and are all about connecting with new people, sharing stories, and seeing a friendly face or two.
The sessions are open to anyone and can be accessed through Zoom using the meeting ID 885 9401 6236, the password is 851414. Unfortunately for obvious reasons, no biscuits or coffee will be provided, but bring your own!
YES Brixham has been offering free-to-access weekly activity since the very first lockdown.
The Young Volunteers meet via Zoom every Wednesday at 6.30pm. The Young Volunteers is a group of young people aged 14 to 25 committed to making a difference to their local community.
The sessions are all about bringing young people together in a safe and supportive environment and exploring new ways of making a positive difference in Brixham.
