I haven't posted on here since December when Lynne was very supportive. Anyway walking the dogs this afternoon I happened to take a rest on the wooden bench at the Newhay. There was a workman there installing what is to be a metal bench. We started chatting about how nice it looks here now they have mowed the grass, ah, his say's they want to sell it?????? what?? the Newhay he say's, 'who wants to ...

Dirty town

Has anyone noticed recently how dirty the pavements are on Dawlish Strand,? or is it me?

Teignpot: Of course they are entitled to get their property back. It's just the way they do it by giving just 8 weeks to get out is not long enough whether young or old 8 weeks is not long enough by a long shot especially in our case being in our 70s and never ever missing the rent payment ever.

We have realized something is going on not only in Dawlish but across the country. Landlords of private renters are having their rents increased now that the Government has relaxed the emergency on rents be it a flat or house Landlords are raising rents above the (RPI ) Retail Price Index. Those landlords that attempt to raise rents above that are breaking the law. So, what happens if you refuse ...

Gays creamery

I haven't posted on this site for a long, long time and to be honest you can see why. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, however, over this century a lot of diseases have been eradicated from vaccines, this covid is no different. There will always be people that will believe in conspiracies which is their right if they wish to. People that have a belief in conspiracies is pure fiction, in this ...

No Cover
18 Jul 2020

I was shocked at what I heard this afternoon walking my dogs. I came across our PCSO for Dawlish, and just having a chat about the state of the country and the world. The PCSO had a call from the Sargent in Totnes about an incident in the town and needed the PCSO to attend. The PCSO explained that the Teignbridge area would have no cover if it meant that attendance in Totnes is required. But ...

Oh come on FredBasset, That's not a very nice response to Carer. I take it you are one of those conspiracy theorists. I have often agreed many times with your post's and you have always made sense to me. But on this point of wearing masks, you are completely wrong. The wearing of a mask is to protect people such as yourself. There are many reports that have also stated that if you are wearing a ...

What a mess.
24 Jun 2020

I wonder how many Dawlish residents have taken a left at the station to have a walk along pigeon alley and the old coastguards building and looked down at the beach at low tide. And what do you see? You see clumps of concrete, Iron bars, rotted groynes and various other debris. I don't know who has responsibility whether its Dawlish council or Network rail, but whoever is responsible for it needs ...

Our country and the world is upside down nothing appears real any more nobody talks to anyone, everyone, for the most part, are keeping their distance. So getting your head around this horror is so hard to imagine, its as if we are all playing a part in a horror movie. We have the American TV channel CNN pretty much on 24/7 with a lot more information. The US has a population of 330 million with ...

Can anyone understand that flights are still coming in from hot spots such as New York, Italy, Spain, France and so on, and of course the channel tunnel still running? I watched the BBC question time last night and the moderator bought up a question sent in by a person about flights still entering the country with no checks except passport control and just walk into the country, this will only ...
