A SCHEME that has been in operation throughout the country for many years and which is as important today as it is ever been is Neighbourhood Watch (NHW).The executive committee, for many years under the chairmanship of Geoff Hughes who saw membership grow to more than 280 wardens at its height, spread as far as Mortonhampstead, Exminster, Dawlish and Teignmouth.
Dawlish has been in steady decline over the last 20 years or so. We have The Lawn that has prohibition notices, but no enforcement. Feral gangs of kids roaming around dressed in dark tracksuits, hoodies and baseball caps with fanny packs strapped across their chest with some on push bikes with rucksacks emulating the feral gangs you see on TV.
The chances of seeing a bobby walking around Dawlish are about as frequent as the local council actually doing the jobs we pay them to do.
I just dispair, rate payers always being told to cough up more for their rates with the menaces of court action and bailiffs if they dont pay up and in return less and less services.
I sure agree with these posts. And once again we have the ( Airbnb) inside the bandstand two of them. Take a look at your new council tax notice, I was shocked 6% to Dawlish Council.
But as dear Alison got in again, she will sort it out. (Pigs have been fed and ready for take off)
I wonder how many people complain about the police but voted that waste of space in again?
