A FREE event held at Sidmouth Methodist Church last Friday raised £111 for Age UK Devon.

The Winter Wrapped Up event was funded by the Waitrose ‘Community Matters’ scheme, and aimed to help the over 50s stay warm and well through the winter period, writes Lily Thomas.

Older residents of Sidmouth were able to speak to Stones Solicitors LLP about legal matters and Devon Fire and Rescue Services on how to stay safe in the home.
