Gordon Bennett, this is all beyond me.  Why don't you children play nicely and let the grown-ups have a chat, and maybe some tea and biscuits  (obviously something stronger for you Elvis)

Flo - once upon a time there were plans to have a cemetery there once the one in Oak Hill was full.  Don't know when that idea was changed, possibly when the value of the land when up as it became worth building on.....

'Jobsworth Marshals'  or people who give up their spare time and their Sunday lie-ins to help with an event that puts Dawlish on the map? So when they are pizzing people of f for ensuring the safety of the competitors I bet they are grateful for the abuse and aggravation that they receive. If you don't like the marshals attitude then why not give up some time to do their role properly!!! ...

I get a bit fed up when kids are blamed for everything. Most young people are at home in bed a those times. Having lived in the town centre for some years I can speak from first hand knowledge that the vast majority of drunks out late at night are in their early 20's
