EXMOUTH Chapel Youth Group organised a free carwash for the youth members to serve the community in a fun and active way.Jenna Burnett, a full time youth worker in charge of running six different youth clubs throughout Devon, said: "We wanted to get the kids doing something fun and active for the community, so we organised a free carwash through the church's youth group."The group, which also washed cars in Exeter, plans to hold a similar event in Littleham.Exmouth Community College pupil Becky Watson said: "It's really good fun because, not only are we washing cars, we are serving the community to show that young people get involved with things and do good." Beth Acca added: "It's great fun because we get all wet!"Overall, 25 to 30 young people took part during the day. Some washed the cars and some went out to various car parks to advertise the free service.Harry Barret, who advertised the free car wash, said "I think it is a good idea for the church to get involved with the local community so people don't think it is stuffy. "It shows we love and care for our local area and people."l The EC youth group have a website, www.ecyouth.com for anyone who would like to see what the group involves and what kind of events it runs.
