What is Rest Awhile. Rest Awhile replaces the Old Folks’ Rest Room which provides the facility where people over 55 or those experiencing difficulties with mobility can take a break from shopping for as long as they need. We are able to provide somewhere to sit in the warm and dry with a cup of tea or coffee. We can even offer you a small pack of biscuits to go with your chosen beverage.
Situated where we are, means you can chose to buy your lunch at a number of establishments and eat it in Rest Awhile without having to vacate your seat before you want to.
Rest Awhile connects with our Charity Shop and access can be gained from inside Rest While or from outside. The Charity Shop is traditional and stocks clothes, shoes and bags as well as bric a brac. TASS Charity Shop has a good reputation and we have many regulars because we try to keep the stock fresh by rotating it weekly. There are always bargains to be had.
If you are planning on visiting Tavistock and have limited mobility, then call into The Anchorage situated behind Plymouth Road Bus Station. The Anchorage is home to Tavy Mobility. Here you can hire a wheelchair, walker or scooter for the day. It is level access into town along Plymouth Road. Each mobility scooter is equipped with a basked for those all important purchases. You can park the scooter outside Rest Awhile and still keep an eye on it from the inside.
There really is no reason to stay at home when TASS has got your outing covered.
