New! Free Crediton Signposting Index

Seek inspiration, access support, and shape the world around you. Over the last several months, Significant Seams has consulted with a wide array of voluntary and community groups to assemble a new ‘Signposting Index’ to help people chart plans for their creative and wellbeing locally. This free printable document indexes creative and wellbeing resources, groups, and opportunities around the Crediton and Mid-Devon area.

Significant Seams Director Catherine West says, “We know it can be especially hard to find and navigate services in the moment it’s most needed. This document aims to help individuals and frontline services ‘find a way in.’ We support the “No wrong door policy” to social support and celebrate and support other organisations who do too.”

The index has been made possible as part of the Devon County Council Holiday Activity & Food Programme, which is now anticipated to be in its final year. The document is designed to provide lasting signposting and support – making it easier to find relevant support when needed. 

Significant Seams, The Turning Tides Project, Devon Art Tuition, and Sustainable Crediton’s Community Larder group are pleased to be co-presenting an exciting programme of summer activities and sharing of food over 13 dates in the school summer holidays for 11-16 year olds. Young people entitled to Free School Meals can attend for free. Details of the events day by day are detailed here:

Register interest now to be alerted when booking opens – anticipated as 26 June, in line with all  the #HAFDevon2024 programmes across the county.

The #HAFDevon2024 programme for our area is also supported by GWR, Hodemedod Foods, and Awards for All. (Further support is welcome, the programme has had no uplift in line with inflation in two years.) Volunteers interested in supporting the programme are welcome to get in touch. Sustainable Crediton Community Larder group and Significant Seams are coordinating this activity. Volunteers can:

  • Help pre-make meals (or part of meals), stews, breads, smoothie kits etc to feed 20-25 people on the 13 days of the programme
  • Help source or collect donated dry goods and foodstuff
  • Help engage/lead young people in food preparation during the programme delivery
  • Contribute recipes to the new Community Larder Recipe Bank project

Volunteers will be supported to acquire required certifications where needed. All involved in food prep will need a current food hygiene certificate and those interacting with young people will need an enhanced DBS check. To express interest in becoming involved, email

(Additional support is welcome to ease real pressures on the costs of delivery. The delivery budget has had no increases for the cost of inflation in two years.)

On each day of the programme, except 30 August, activities will include outdoor cooking and food preparation, art-making with artists, peer-led art sessions by Bronze Arts Award candidates who are sharing a skill, music and song making sessions, outdoor exploring/discovery activities. 

Activities will include flower pounding, rock painting, paper and mask making, puppet making, fabric decorating, making the articulated wings of a giant dragon sculpture for an outdoor Amphitheatre, and 3-d decorated letters. Participants will meet at the Turning Tides Tea Rooms at Crediton Train Station and walk to Four for All, the Turning Tides Woodland Community Garden overlooking the train lines accessed from Four Mills Lane. It sounds a bit mysterious doesn’t it? But dragons and adventures in the woods are meant to be!
