Hi Sue. The only one I'm aware of is Susanne Welsh at 37 the Strand. Her number is 862648‎. I'm not sure if she's also known as Sue! ;-)

From this week's Dawlish Gazette (available if you live in Dawlish): Fairtrade status continues Dawlish has maintained its status as a Fairtrade Town. The Fairtrade Foundation said Dawlish had gone "from strangth to strength" and it looked forward to more support from schools. The committee is currently looking for new members. Anyone connected with the town's schools would be particularly ...

Neither of you has acknowledged that the fact that crime rates are down is GOOD news for the citizens of Dawlish, and its visitors. Why is that, I wonder? Interesting that Viaduct has twice written "your councillors"...... Crime rates are down - FACT.

Crime has dramatically plunged in Teignbridge. Over the last three years, offences have dropped by a massive 20 per cent. In 2003-2004, 4,769 crimes were recorded, but in the past 12 months the figure was down to 3,728, smashing a government target.

Has anyone on here seen any of the scarecrows on display (obviously those that don't live here won't have done)?

I'm happy. It's not perfect, but there again where/what/who is? Remember that there is no utopia, except for when you close your eyes...

There are 273 "places" in Great Britain according to this survey. Exeter/Teignbridge came 106th in this survey, which means that there are 167 "places" where the people surveyed are less happy than we are. Locally, South Hams/West Devon was 90th, North Devon/Torridge was 130th and East Devon/Mid Devon was 221st. Thanks for pointing out the good news Viaduct.
