The certificate was presented to the group by Mayor Peter Burrows during a ceremony at its Monday meeting in the town’s Methodist Church.

The award is a new initiative of Devon Memory Cafe Consortium (DMCC) launched this year in partnership with the Community and Voluntary Support (CVS) organisations. Action East Devon is the awarding organisation for East Devon and provides support to Memory cafes who want to take up the scheme.

The award demonstrates that the relevant policies and practices ensure safe, caring, effective and responsive services.
