Parking tickets

I have found the answer to my question above and once again leatash is misleading readers to this forum. On the 2nd September 2017 you wrote:- " The same terms and conditions apply Devon County for on street Teighnbridge for car parks these terms and conditions came into force when parking was decriminalised by a act of parliament, as you will know parking illegaly used to be a criminal offence ...

leatash, Pray tell me what TRO you were looking at, as it should have been the latest consolidation order made on the 2nd May 2017. All other orders have been revoked. And where in that order you refer too, did you find what you have posted on this site?

When it is time for them to go to bed, they fly close into their roosting site many at a time, sometimes I have seen upto about thirty. They then fly into a tree abit closer to where they sleep, about five or six at a time and then with a cheep from one of them, they bury ...

Point to Point at Black Forest will cease with immeadiate effect, should anyone require that info. The land has been sold and the new owners do not want point to point on their land.

How many Hotels did we once have in Dawlish? I live in what was one of them. Saturday nights (dance night) was alive with music.

You can't ask our town council to come up with schemes like that. They are only interested in- Don't I look beautiful in my large brimmed hat or spending outrageous sums on white elephants that drain the purse in the belief that we will all say,"didn't they do well". I have never heard that phrase said about DTC in my life about anything.
