Dawlish News

@Mrs C, I do not understand how you can accuse the Gazette of being biased over the developments for the lawn when the sheer volume of the objections logged with TDC are now over the 200 mark compared to the half dozen letters in support. You appear to be the one out of step with the majority of the people of Dawlish. BTW, as for your skills in proof reading, you need to learn how to use the ...

Yes the volunteers will have support and back up from a range of sources. Members of the F&GP committee asked very searching questions about the support the volunteers would get.

The cafe had made Coryton Cove a very special place again. Those of us who spent happy hours relaxing and enjoying the excellent food and service will miss this and the excellent hosts who were always so welcoming. Hopefully TDC  will get another structure in place quickly but will that help the current lease holders?

I too am a keen cyclist and love using the cycle paths but Fred has got a really valid point here. If money is so tight, and we all know it is, and it is a choice between essential services such as day care services for my 87 year old mother or an extension of the Exe estuary cycle path then there is no contest in my book. My mother worked all her life and contributed her taxes and national ...

leatash, Reasearch is my middle name! I have been out there talking to cafe owners so know what is going on and how badly they are being affected.

Fred has made some very valid points. The 'Orange Army' has been heralded by some as something close to God and yes they are doing a very tough and hazardous job but that is what they are being paid to do. What is really disappointing is that they have brought their own catering vans with them and enjoy 'free food' (for 'free food' read food paid for by the tax payer) when some local cafés could ...

Just had the latest from FGW and the work on the tunnel continues tomorrow so trains still going on the SW route.

9 Feb 2014

To be fair to FGW the delays between Exeter and London up to this weekend have been solely due to the much needed work on the Whiteball tunnel. I travel to London every week and sometimes twice a week and have not had any significant delays up until this engineering work. People who use the longer SW trains route do so because they choose to go into London Waterloo. Whether the trains run as they ...

Do you know if the work on the Whiteball tunnel has been completed? It was due to be finished today. If it hasn't then FGW trains will still have to use the SW line, which adds at least an hour onto the journey. Add another hour on because of using the coach link between Dawlish and Exeter.
