@leatash , because you really think everyone is on the internet and have no idea how many people in this country live in poverty and cannot afford the luxury of the internet! you need to get out of dawlish and see a bit of the rest of the country!

A story in the media this week about a couple who sent the deposit for their house purchase to the wrong account (well he did!) because he got one number wrong! At the time of the report the bank still has not traced where the money went but £9000 of it had been spent! On line banking is fine for some things but not for everything.

Well all can say is that most of those 84 customers seem to be in the bank every time I go! And just because two people in the happy hut  have mobile phones this means everyone in the entire country is on the internet! What a sheltered and privileged life leatash leads.

I agree, that is exactly what the banks want, everyone banking online. It’s the same with the surgery, they want you to order your repeat prescriptions online and in order to push us into doing so we can no longer drop them off at Boots. If you don’t do it online you HAVE to take it to the surgery! But.........what about those people not online, who maybe can’t afford to pay for internet access? ...

NatWest in Teignmouth is to close in the next few months. I don’t know how NatWest can justify this decision as every time I go into the bank the queue is horrendous, showing clearly it is a well used branch.

Why not spend the money on replacing the hideous bandstand we have put up with for years? And I do mean a BANDSTAND, not an awful out of place armadillo as was proposed in 2014. There are some excellent examples of tasteful bandstands, Exmouth and Dartmouth spring to mind. At least it would be used by every age group and actually enhance the lawn area. Ok, I’m now waiting for Mrs C to make ...

Prove it, once and for all! There are so many consultation results who can say what the people of Dawlish really want. We need another INTELLIGENT consultation with balanced questions so a full analysis of the views of residents can take place. But people like you won’t want such a democratic approach because you are so biased!

Mrs C says stop the insults! She has spent years on here insulting every poster who disagrees with her! Talk about pot, kettle, black!! It takes my breath away!

And it even made the mini golf look exciting!!

Well said Deedoodle, ignore the facetious comments from others, you ask a really important question and one which many of us would like to have answered. The consultants for the ‘slug’ were paid over £20,000! How much are we wasting on consultants on the white elephant of the playpark, which most residents don’t want building on the beautiful unspoilt lawn area?
