During the February and Easter half terms there will be free art and craft and fun activities for adults and children alike.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to felt, to weave or paint on silk then this is your opportunity. Or if you already have an art project for the torch celebrations or Weymouth Carnival and would like some help?

Lets Make It community group have the skills, the know how and the funding to run these great fun sessions. All you have to do is turn up!

They are running family sessions and adult only sessions.

Workshops will take place over the school holidays and also during term time.

The first information session will be held on Thursday 16th February at Littlemoor church hall from 10.am.

Workshops are also being held at Westham, Tophill and the town centre and you are welcome to join in any of these sessions.

For more information please contact Julie Hursthouse on 01305 838497 or email letsmakeitproject@hotmail.co.uk.

Terry Butcher, who has valiantly campaigned to keep the public toilets open has decided to stand down. After spending hours collecting petition signatures outside the shops and attending council and local community meetings he has had to give up due to poor health.

Despite the councils decision not to re-open them Terry was determined to keep pressing them to change their mind.

He would like to hand over the campaign to someone who, like him, believes the toilets are an essential facility for cab drivers, goods delivery men, shoppers and their children and to the summer visitors.

If there is anyone willing to continue where Terry has had to leave off, then please get in contact with him on 01305 834442.

Meanwhile he would like to thank everyone who signed the petition, Mark Tewkesbury, the shopkeepers and taxi companies who supported him throughout his campaign
