Boiler failings caused the Day Centre in Saffron Walden to close for the second day this week (January 5 and 6).

Plumbers have been called in to fix the problem at The Garden Room, and it is expected to reopen as normal on Monday.

As Friday is a quiet day for the centre only two people were booked in, who have been notified.

It would have been cold inside the building, as temperatures outside in Saffron Walden today (January 6) at lunchtime were between two and three degrees Celsius.

Normally at the centre, breakfasts are served from 9am. Coffees, freshly baked scones, cakes and snacks are available from 10am to 1.30pm, and one or two course lunches are from 12.15pm.

The building can also be hired for private parties and other events, as it has a fully equipped commercial kitchen.

To contact the centre, call 01799 522772. It is located at 3 Hill Street, CB10 1EH – next to the Jubilee gardens.
