Easter celebrations began with Shrove Tuesday pancake races for pupils from Woodbury Salterton Primary School.

Youngsters from Littleham Primary School were invited to have the sign of the cross made on their foreheads as a mark they would commit to Lent by giving generously.

Headteacher of Littleham and Woodbury Salterton primary schools, Duncan Nelmes said: “During Lent, the children will be following 40Acts, which is a generosity challenge which invites people to do Lent a bit differently.

“Each day, the children will select a challenge card and see if they carry this out throughout the day.”

● Holy Trinity Exmouth is hosting on loan a sculpture of Jesus made from driftwood in Vietnam. All are welcome to visit, open daily, to contemplate, pray and reflect, during Lent.
