Can I just say, I have refrained from posting for such a long time, because what's the point, quite frankly. Here on, is just a small community compared to the town, it's populations and those that have thoughts and opinions day in day out. Anyway more to the point, I don't blame or wish to point blame at anyone for having freedom of speech, beliefs, opinions, in any matter ...

State of the Lawn
28 Aug 2015

The people who benefit from it: The Fair Organisers, The People Taking The Booking Money, What's Left Of The Carnival, The Traders and Members of the Public who enjoy it. and your quite right @Carer out of those who actually puts time, money and the effort to upkeeping the lawn? i can only vouch for the fair doing that themselves, and i agree totally with you, would be nice if other ...

@slargemail That is just the point exactly, the fair does bring in a much needed income and it brings entertainment whether we like it or not, it's one of the oldest forms of entertainment, rides might be bigger and "better" now but in "fair"ness it's apart of the town. I know from hand the fair people do spend money in the town, do dontate to local oragnisations and do pay to upkeep the ...

The Lawn Always in a state after the carnival, airhow, fair etc, we can't blame just one party here, a marquee kills the grass, a plank of wood left for a week kills the grass, a vehicle kills the grass, a picnic mat left down all day can kill the grass.  So the point I'm trying to reach is we can't pinpoint this at one group. Rowlands Rowlands Fun Fair have always gone the extra mile ...

just found this on thier facebook @Carer - thedawlishregatta

They are pretty disgusting and have no character or in no way map our town to it's heritage or promote the town in anyway, but again do we blame the designer or the people who allowed it to be there in the first place!

The question is... Is this a publicity stunt to get votes for LibDem, if not why is it only LibDem that have beeb either a) approached or b) only ones in agreement. wouldn't the green party not support Mr Weeks too, or is this soley between LibDem and Mr Weeks only. Yes I agree it would be lovely to see Richards son "farm" the land, it would actually be lovely to see anyone "farm" that ...

As stated, I have already explained who owns the float. My father was upon the "Committee" at the time this was purchased. The trailer was made at HMP Dartmoor and funded partially by the Council at the time under the ruling that it would be an asset to Dawlish and not to be deemed ownership by any single group.

i think @michaelclayson makes some valid points, if we take away the week of carnival we have nothing to fill the gap. it goes without saying that carnivals across devon and fading away rapidly. we as a town don't want to loose our carnival week, thats for sure. However we as a town do not wish to see time and time again a failure of a week and the towns money being invested into ...
