Budleigh group appeal for workmate and more news

Budleigh Salterton’s Messy Church has appealed for workmate. Read this and more news

NO LONGER USED: If you have a Black and Decker workmate you no longer use, Budleigh Salterton’s Messy Church is happy to give it a new home.

The youngsters attending the sessions take part in a host of crafts and activities, but the boys have requested more masculine interests.

Messy Church spokesman Sally Rogers said: “If anyone who no longer does, or is able to do, DIY and has a workmate at the back of their garage gathering dust, it would find a good home with Messy Church.”

The Messy Church is at The Peter Hall, St Peter’s Church, 3.30pm to 5.30pm, every second Thursday of the month.
