Oil leak on a 1ltr p’reg vw polo?

After having only the leads and points changed, by my local mechanical, it has had a slow trickle of oil from under the oil sump area.. but it seems to be coming from the mid-part of the engine (not the rocker cover that bone dry), but from the bottom of the dipstick area and also coming from the bottom of the spark plug area.. it’s not showing overfilled with engine oil on the dipstick. Would completely draining the engine and flushing out with a proper oil engine de-greaser help.
Thanks.

    draining and refilling makes no difference to an oil leak.
    check rocker cover has not been knocked or disturbed as this can give rise to oil leaks and often onto spark plug areas. ( filling with oil) check dipstick has not been bent or moved as the seal in block should be free form oil and dry. has dipstick been removed ? clean down everything of course. is oil clean? form topping up? dirty ( used oil) all can help pinpoint source of leak but it si the source of leak9s) we need to trace. dry and clean and recheck after a journey to try and ascertain exact leah point without letting wind etc push it around so oil leak area to big to get exact leak start point.
