Residents enjoy a tasty meal after a morning of arts, crafts and cooking
A community lunch at Millwey Rise, in Axminster, proved a recipe for success.
The event was organised by East Devon District Council’s Landlord Services team at the request of local health eating charity HALFF.
Some 25 local young people, their families and sheltered tenants, enjoyed a meal together after a morning of arts, crafts and cooking at Millwey Community Centre.
The aim was to bring different ages of the community together.

East Devon Community Development Worker, Victoria Robinson, who was responsible for co-ordinating the lunch, said: “We are all very pleased with the number who came and both organisers and guests asked for the event to be repeated as it was such a hit with everyone who attended.”
East Devon Mobile Support Officer Lucinda Cliff encouraged sheltered tenants to get involved and invited Anna Aroussi of the Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton to run a ‘Blooming Marvellous’ workshop. Youngsters also made bunting with the help of community development worker Deirdre Ryan.
