Great Councillor who did a lot for the town and supported a great many institutions, businesses and events. Enjoy your retirement Ros.

Went to Amelia's at Cofton this morning. £13 for a 'large' breakfast. The 'Portobello Mushroom' was a single mushroom (less than the size of a bean tin lid) cut in half....and you got 1 half! Anything that could be small was (toast, sausages, bacon, hash brown (McCain type). The 'herb roasted tomato' was....well, just a roasted tomato! Took the best part of an hour to arrive. Egg ...

Overwhelmed due to the debacle/sale of all Lloyds pharmacies?

Well, from what I know and have seen from the likes of Taylor and James there is absolutely nothing either Liberal nor Democratic about either of them! Teignbridge is also considered one of the most corrupt councils in the country (from public opinion I hear) under their leadership. Great result....not!

I'm sure they'll get a TV mention this year.

What a complete Harse!

Up until they were protected (around the mid-70s) it was perfectly possible to control the Gull population. Local people (generally several generations of the same families) would climb the cliffs (especially at Coryton Cove) using long ladders, which were kept on the beach, and collect the eggs which were then sold in local butchers shops. Granted, a young chap I knew broke his neck falling ...

Okay...come on...cough up! Which complete prat has now installed bird and bat boxes along Commons Lane then? Apparently there are so many Cirl Buntings in Dawlish now that we probably need a cull! And as for bats....I believe there's now a movement to rename Dawlish as Gotham City!!!
