This website's 'Societies' page is worth a look.  I agree with Duckileaks, too much negativity on this forum. Also note the Leisure Centre where there is lots going on. Agree the train is the best way to go to Exeter.

Dawlish definitely. Ignore the doom-mongers above.  I've lived here for 26 years, my OH 's family for generations, all my offspring and now grandchildren live here. We love Dawlish.  Like small towns everywhere there's good and bad.  There are plenty of clubs/societies you can join, there's lots of voluntary groups who would love more support. Dawlish is very community minded, the comment ...

Yes, some people do look for doom and gloom we have ...

There is a lot of activity at the viaduct by the police and coastguard right now.

Hi there. For travel to Exeter and back, the best bet is the train, and despite the troubles, they generally do run on time. Having lived here for 30 years, yes, there has been a decline but there are still things to do as you have mentioned. Some people just look at doom and gloom. All the best in what you do.

20years ago you could get to Exeter easily in 30mins, now you are lucky if you can do the same journey within an hour. I have lived in this area all my life and the road from Dawlish to Exeter has not changed apart from the Exminster by-pass. In the last 30years or more they must have built thousands of new homes, starting in Dawllish on to Starcross then Kenton and Exminister without giving the ...

Oh really that's interesting. What is traveling in and out to exeter like for work? Is it crazy busy in the summer trying to get back at 5pm?

I have spoken to the workman - no Costa no Star Wars themed restaurant when they have finished the work they are doing for the Landlord the TO LET sign will go back up.

Anne Marie Morris: I am delighted to be the last Back Bencher standing to conclude the debate before the Front Benchers have their say. I thought the referendum result was a great tribute to the British people. It was a vote for opportunity, it was a vote of aspiration, and it was a vote for freedom. Many in this Chamber would absolutely support that. My real frustration is that this ...
