How apt! Just as we are being asked to consider  more house building in the parish so Devon County Council decides to do a survey asking about pre-school child care provision. I'd say Dawlish needs more as we only have the one nursery at the moment and what with all the new houses already having been built, scheduled to be built, and possibly to be built sometime in the future it won't only be ...

This survey closes this Monday (2nd August). Click on 'start' at bottom of first post on this thread to register your views.

As all this proposed housebuilding would end up taking away so much of what is presently open country, it's been suggested to me that the present Dawlish countryside park might become the local place to go to find er..........open countryside. So perhaps the park  could be renamed : " What's left of the Dawlish country side, park". And on its signage there could be little motifs of ribbons. ...

Just a bit of fun really (although it does relate to a serious issue). I've mentioned before that should future development take place on what is known as 'the Dawlish North site' then this park, presently surrounded by countryside, might need to be renamed as it will then be surrounded by housing. It already has the Redrow development to the south and the future proposed development would ...

@Deedoodle @Burneside Suggest you ask Boris. I was, and am not, the ultimate decision maker. I am only trying to figure out the logic (assuming of course that there was/is some).  But it does seem from news reports from around the world that COVID infected patients were/are given priority in terms of hospital treatment. Ps Get vaccinated, keep wearing the masks and keeping your ...

Yes, agreed, lots of other illnesses needing hospitilsation have been put to one side during this pandemic. But if you are ill enough to be in hospital then I'd guess that your immune system may not be working properly and thus you would be even more susceptible to catching, and dying from, COVID. So the best way to get other illnesses sorted out? Get the Covid hospitilisation figures down. ...

I was up at Oaklands Wood yesterday. Oaklands wood leads onto three fields that have a path running around them often used by dog walkers.  These three fields are up for consideration for housing development. They are known as the Teignmouth Road site in the Local Plan review. Someone has placed some A4 posters where access to the fields can be made from the wood giving information about this ...

Fresh air is great. Virus ridden air ain't. Wearing a mask in crowded places and keeping your distance is not being sheeple. It's being sensible.

"It now seems that protective measures such as masking and distancing leading to lower exposure (getting a lower infectious dose) correlates with risk of death. So if you’re exposed to less virus the course of the infection is less severe. This has been long-suspected but the data is now supporting that. The decreases we’re seeing in morbidity and mortality are in part due to a very steep ...

I'm not sure that I have read anywhere that the vaccine is seen as a cure all.  It has been made clear that having the vaccine will not necessarily stop people getting the virus.  The vaccine will, however, stop people getting as ill as they might have done if they had not been vacccinated. And if vaccinated people can still get the virus then they can pass it on to others. But if more and ...
