Residents are being asked once again to dig out their jumble as Ottery Scouts gear up for the giant annual sale.

Collections around the town will take place a week next Monday and Tuesday, with a van in West Hill also on hand for donations.

This year the Jumble Sale will be raising money for the scout’s major project, a £90,000 renovation of the group’s headquarters in Winters Lane.

Split over two weeks, the massive sale needs people in Ottery to donate bric-a-brac, furniture, electrical items, clothes, textiles and homeware, as well as books, CDs and DVDs.

Organiser Mary Moore said she hopes the local community can dig deep and help the scout group upgrade its facilities and accommodate more young people from the town.
