Move to Dawlish
15 Jan 2019

Honestly I would give Dawlish a miss. In the 15 years I have been here it has just been a steady decline downwards. Exeter is the closest place for decent shopping and jobs and there is next to nothing for kids to do around the town. I would suggest a better move would be to the outskirts of Newton Abott or better still Exeter. Public transport is really bad and the only way to get around is by ...

It would be better if they actually enforced the PSPO's they currently have, before they expand them. The Dawlish PSPO is a joke. There is blatent abuse off  the PSPO and very rarely does anything get enforced.

If it were poundland it would be better than another charity shop or betting shop, wouldn't it?

and then takes off a few minutes later.

@leatash - i beg to differ, the weight in the tree is in the trunk not in the small branches that have slowly grown back after many years since it was last butchered. In 18 months you will have a tuft of branches sticking out of the trunk. The only reason it is butchered in this way is because it is cheaper to do so, not for any other reason, in my opinion.

Walking along The Brook yesterday evening, by the old monkey house, I saw that one of the lovely willows that had been butchered many years ago has now been revisited by talented tree surgeons! Poor quality pic from my phone, still shows the pruning extent.

The british goverment is like the arabs during the 2nd world war, a bit like a tree in a storm.
