DTC are caving in to pressure from the Chamber of Trade who want the play park under the impression that it will bring more business.  The Town Centre Development Manager is pushing for this too. Yet the people who actually use the Lawn like the Charities, the Carnival, the Air Show (which may go ahead again) are being virtually ignored. To lose that big chunk of land will have a massive ...

Deedoodle is spot on, the comments haven't been analysed.  The person who wrote the questions is the same one who is driving this - of course the result is going to be in favour, a questionnaire is always going to skewed in one way or another. It's shocking that of all the spaces on the Lawn one of the two most used is considered, it should be on the fiasco/piazza which is hardly used, or take ...

TDC, it's their car park which just happens to have a surgery built in it

Orla, go for it, move here. Dawlish is a great place to live, sure it has the same issues that any town has but there is loads to do.  Plenty of clubs, lots of things to volunteer your time to - museum, carnival, folk festival, friends of the hospital etc etc You won't regret moving here (you'll feel at home anyway - lots of other midlanders already here )

I've struggled to see my GP in the past.  The new(ish) system means that if you phone on the day for an urgent appointment you get the duty doc, if you phone wanting an appointment with your GP in a week you have to also phone at 8.30 - which I think is bloody stupid, everyone phoning at the same time! Regarding Deedoodle saying that there's only one doc with time for you, some of the new ...

Out of 300 million people the best they can come up with is those two. Probably time for a meteor to hit, wipe us all out and start again......

The Town Council are organising it this year, the first weekend of December.

On Monday 27th (tomorrow) at 7pm there is a meeting for volunteers to attend at the Royal British Legion Club. A chance to support the week of events even if just for a few hours.  If you can get to the meeting brilliant, if not and you still want to help then email dawlishcelebratescarnival@outlook.com

Leigham Court is fairly quiet.  It used to be full of elderly people who had bought the houses new in the early 70's but they are gradually dying or moving to nursing homes! There are now a couple of houses that are rented out, there are younger families moving in so there are now quite a few cars about. If you're looking at buying then make sure the roff is checked properly - they're flat ...

Dawlish is lovely, very family friendly, lots to do.  Good transport links, shopping for food is ok, shopping for other stuff is improving. Schools - Gatehouse has gone downhill over the recent years but steps are underway to sort this out, but I'd go for Westcliff - they are great there now.  Community College is good - my youngest did well there. If you look at the Kinngsdown Crescent area ...
