Construction is about to begin on a brand new Community Hub for Topsham, one of the area’s most important buildings of recent years - and the organisation behind it is seeking volunteers to help champion its work and plan how it will develop.
The new hub, being built on the site of the former ‘pre-fab’ Topsham library, aims to be the pride of the local community.
It will be the base for many of the services provided by the Estuary League of Friends, a long-standing and much-loved charity serving the town and communities stretching from Countess Wear to Exmouth.

Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £28.5 million to more than 4000 projects up and down the UK and the supermarket is now calling on community groups in Exeter to put themselves forward for a grant.
