Volunteers from Devon Freewheelers have decided to continue with their Charity Car Wash event at their HQ in Honiton.  The third Sunday of every month is the easiest way to programme this into your calendars.

The event shall be taking place at Unit 15 Durham Way, Heathpark Industrial Estate in Honiton from 10am to 3pm.  A minimum donation of £5 per car and £8 for large vans is requested however many people on the day paid over and above.  All of the equipment from sponges to wax has been provided free of charge by neighbouring business Motor Parts Direct of Honiton who are also keen to recruit a relief/temporary driver.  If you know anyone looking for a driving job in Honiton, please ring MPD on 01404 515435 or pop in and see them!

Dates for your diary are as follows: Sunday 18th March 2018, Sunday 15th April 2018, Sunday 20th May 2018 and Sunday 20th June 2018.
