Clutterbugs support UK Hoarding Awareness Week

Clutterbugs are delighted to announce that the Torbay Fire and Rescue Service will be joining them at their next meeting on 19th May 2014 to give an informal presentation. All are welcome to join us at this event which promises to be informative and quite possibly life saving.

Venue: CentrePeace, Palace Avenue, Paignton (behind the theatre)
Date: Monday 19th May 2014
Time 10.30 am

Victoria Slaney of VS Foundation who allowed her experience of a house fire that wiped out all her possessions to be a life changing experience will be there.

We will also be joined by Nick Hall of Space Savers, a Torquay based decluttering service.


We held our second meeting of Clutterbugs on Monday. Two new members were welcomed. It is such a friendly group that they were soon chatting away, happily sharing experiences and advice. It is lovely when people realise that they are not alone with their problem of clutter and especially helpful to speak with people who really understand the problem from the inside.

The venue is CentrePeace, an amazing community venture which is making such a difference to people in Paignton. Every one is welcomed and soon involved in running the centre. This makes it somewhere that people are seen in terms of what they have to offer rather than what they need to receive. This is very empowering and you can see how it builds the self esteem of those who are involved.

Both the centre staff and Clutterbugs offer each other friendship and support. It is a perfect match and we clutterbugs are so grateful that the centre is there for us to use.

Our next meet up will be on Monday 31st March 2014 from 9.30am to 11.00am. you are welcome to drop in for as much or as little time as you like. We can recommend the hot chocolate and yummy cakes available in the cafe.
