It’s hugely disappointing that Dawlish Town Council haven’t offered to be included in the list of official beacons being lit all around the country to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.
As far as i can remember the beacon in the Brook has only been used once but hey what else should we expect from Dawlish Town Council. As a matter of interest does anyone know what the cost of the beacon was.
This is especially saddening after all of the sterling work that’s been done by the likes of Bob Vickery, which was supported by the previous DTC administration, to commemorate the lives that were lost due to WWI.
I’m sure he won’t mind me posting on here that I’ve received a message from Martin Wrigley saying that he will bring this to the attention of the Council. Fingers crossed that something will come of this so that we can fully commemorate our fallen heroes. Thank you Mr Wrigley.
We should always commemorate and remember fallen and non fallen heroes, and if the beacon was made for a reason it should be used, looked after and maintained for the reason. I fear there is so much in Dawlish that could make Dawlish so pretty, that just goes amiss. Will Cllr Wrigley also ask for the removal of the Christmas Tree dumped in the manor grounds and ask why the area is not being maintained?
