I wonder if this will be the last word. :->

I will never wear Lycra because I do not want to make members of the public or, more importantly, my good lady wife vomit. However when I do venture out on my boneshaker, I tend to avoid cycle lanes that are shared with pedestrians. This is mainly because pedestrians have no obligation to indicate their intention of moving suddenly left or right, so I find it is safer for me to use the road. If, ...

Good for you Leatash for taking the time and making efforts to help someone. Unfortunately your energy was wasted on that person who is an idiot on two accounts. Firstly for dumping the statements like that, which may be forgiveable under some circumstances, but also for abusing you which is completely unforgiveable. I believe (or certainly hope) that this will not deter you from doing further ...

A small Dawlish establishment wanted to hold a sponsored dip in the sea on Boxing Day morning. 10 a.m. meet, dip in the sea which would involve people going in about up to their waists, then running out, fancy dress optional. Then meet back at the venue for festive drinks. Proceeds to the neonatal unit at RD & E hospital. What could possibly go wrong? Ok if waves were mountainous, then common ...

Perhaps I have not travelled too much, but I do not know of another town that has such an open wildlife conservation area right in its heart. To that extent, I believe Dawlish is unique in a very enchanting way. Unfortunately, there are people who are not knowledgeable, or just plain ignorant as to how to nurture this. Therefore, I feel that a certain amount of signage is really necessary. As to ...

I was down there this afternoon, and it is still there but someone (presumably a public spirited individual) has overpainted the 'F' words with blue paint.

People, is it not time to take a deep breath, then step back and have a good look at the issues being argued here. Is it possible that it has been debated to death, and has now descended into a rather juvenile slagging match? Is is really worth all this energy? I do not believe I know anyone posting on this thread, but please guys, just give it a rest!

I have just visited this park for my first time. All I can say is that it is so lovely, and marvellous to see how so many other people were enjoying it so much too, most of them with their lovely dogs. How anyone can find anything to moan about this facility is beyond my comprehension. Perhaps they should be left to wallow in their own misery, where they are most happy!!!

@Margaret Swift , I am sad that you have had bad experiences with our local health services. In the past, in another part of the country, my family has too, so I sympathise. I am only coming back on your comment that I was lucky. That would mean I have been lucky several times so far with the Barton Surgery, and I do not believe that my comments regarding Torbay Hospital were down to luck. I ...

I have recently had a planned operation at Torbay Hospital, and I have to say that I have nothing but praise for my treatment and care. The ward was spotlessly clean and all the staff, from the cleaners and caterers to all medical staff were very professional, cheerful and caring. After discharge I have had excellent service from the Outreach Team who have visited me always on time. I had to phone ...
