Axe Valley youngsters invited to create something from rubbish - with the chance of winning a go-kart
Time is running out for Axe Valley youngsters to start building something from scrap - and win a prize.
Retired engineer Dennis White, 83, of Axminster, has challenged them to create something using only waste materials, just like kids of his generation did.
And the three winners of the competition will receive some of his own handiwork – with a superb go-kart created from old bits of wood and abandoned pram wheels as top prize.
The contest is open to youngsters aged five to 12 who can create any item they like as long as it is made entirely from scrap materials. A little help from mum and dad is alright, as long as it is mostly their own project.
The entries should be taken to North Street playground, in Axminster, between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday, October 5, with the winner announced during the second hour.
