The letter from TDC is accompanied by a map of Sandy Lane Playing Fields showing where the park and ride cars will be parked. The area is divided into 4. As I can't put the map on here I will try and explain where they are. Car parking area 1 is located between Dawlish Leisure Centre and the chidren's playground. Car parking area 2 is located to the north side of Dawlish Leisure ...

Not getting hot under the collar at all MV. Merely pointing out the timing of the last train back to Dawlish and points west vis-a-vis the time the headline act is due to finish. Thought it might be of interest to those intending, or know of those intending, to travel to the gig and back by train.

Train times: According to the Gaz the headline acts should finish their sets by 10.00pm. (but it could always be a bit later I guess) How long will it take to leave Powderham and walk along to Starcross station given the crowds?

@MV - I am not the only one who is expressing concern about many aspects of this whole thing. (and for once, and probably the only time, I find myself in agreement with burneside). LOL!

I am not suggesting that new houses be given away. It is the government that is 'giving away' Starter Homes up to the tune of a 20% discount on the price of each one. I am talking about homes for those who cannot afford to buy (even allowing for that 20% discount) and who therefore need to rent. In other words I am talking about affordable rental housing (housing with rents no more than 80% of ...
