Fun, Local, Volunteering

We have an amazing team of volunteers who make our café a fun and special place. We have volunteers of all ages and by having so many, each volunteer can ​help only once a month or as often as they wish. Volunteers work in teams so it is a fun way to meet people, develop new skills and give something back to our community. ​If you’re interested in joining us ask one of the volunteers for details or email rvhchair1@gmail.com.

Our Offer

We offer coffee for a variety of tastes including latte, cappuccino, Americano and decaffeinated Nespresso, cafetières and simple Nescafe. We have regular breakfast tea as well as specialty varieties. Our home baked cakes are second to none and we also ​serve simple toast or teacakes with your brew. Watch on Facebook and Instagram for our specials! If you bring your own cup we can provide take-away drinks and we are always happy to fill your water bottle with good old Repton tap water. Do pop in.
