So much for the pledge never to close the last bank in town. The concept of service to the public is totally alien to banks now. Even service to other businesses has gone down the toilet. All they think about is ways to save money and pay vast bonuses to themselves.

Well, I saw a man who let his dog poo by the side of the path in the Manor and it was a big one (both poo and dog). I remonstrated with him and told him he could face a fine but he just looked blank and I don't think he really thought there was any problem. A child running along by the side of that footpath could easily step in it, plus anyone else. When you can't get through to people, what do ...

The reason I ask is because I have been to a number of events at Powderham & obviously there is a limit to the amount of parking it can take & also when it comes to finishing, there is a mad scramble to get out of the exits (usually 2). So therefore the "free" entrance will presumably be only for a certain ...

Well done team.

We are paying twice over as the BBC already receives our money through payment of the licence fee. Why was there so much secrecy over the information being made public anyway? Don't the public have a right to know how their money is spent? Like others on this forum, I don't see how Dawlish (or Teignmouth, come to that) will benefit in any way; visitors are more likely to spend their money in ...
