Exmouth people were invited to get their skates on when a roller derby team came to town looking for new members.
The South West Angels of Terror (SWAT) went to the beach and a few local businesses to talk about their ‘fresh meat’ sessions, when newcomers will be trained up to skate with the team’s league.
During their visit, the girls recruited Charlotte from The Cake Lady to the sessions, and also Tarot Close, from Close Up Print and Design in Albion Hill, to join their brother league, The Extraordinary Roller Gents.
Liquid Motion has also agreed to help new skaters to find their first pair of skates/pads and helmets.
SWAT’s Kimberly Rainford said: “We had a lot of interest and people asking what we do, so hopefully there will be a lot of new faces joining us!
“After the first two sessions, our doors close for new recruits until the next ‘fresh meat’ intake, so anyone interested needs to get in quick!
“You don’t need to be able to skate to join up. We will teach you everything you need to know to become a fully fledged Derby Girl!”
The sessions will take place on September 7 and September 14, at Culm Valley Sports Centre, Cullumpton.
Over 18s only.
