Community Waffle House

The Community Waffle House in Axminster are helping co-ordinate a 'Phone Waffling Service' for local residents that are lonely or isolated to make sure that no-one goes without regular human interaction at this time. They are also running a community online Zoom meeting for those that they normally work with at Waffle and could potentially offer this out to more if needed.

They can offer this phone / online service to residents of: All Saints, Axminster, Axmouth, Beer, Branscombe, Colyford, Colyton, Dalwood, Hawkchurch, Kilmington, Membury, Nether Exe, Shute, Southleigh, Stockland and Uplyme.
