Why all the police cars and large vehicles in Sidmouth today. At least 7/8 police cars at the station along with other cars involved ?.
I will say a Prayer for Her safety.at church on sunday.
Does anyone know if Tanya has been found?
Video of the cliff fall is worth watching. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4200762/Resident-cliffside-street-sees-shed-disappear-sea.ht... EDDC can't just sit and watch this happen, we need the BMP now
Still a fail :-)
My first thought at seeing this on the news was why hadn't the shed been demolished already as it was so close to the cliff edge? The house owner must have known it was at risk some time ago. One report stated that he was just about to get/had ... [ more ]
She has good steady hands, she should be proud of her skill as well as being thankful that she was there at the right time.
most modern cameras (and phones) have anti-shake features, I find they work very well.
A friend is seeking recommendation about a certain kitchen fitter, and asked me to post this: "The company is Martha Mockford, and they are at Buckerall, just beyond Honiton. The fitter is called Neil Wilson, and the guy running the company is ... [ more ]
Had personal experience with that company. Very good.
Barbara...would you be willing to speak directly to my friend, please, as direct word of mouth and maybe answering a few questions, as that is what she is hoping for. The company couldnt/wouldnt give any references, which seemed a bit strange.. ... [ more ]
Two female kittens ( about 7 months old) need a loving cat friendly home. If you can offer one, please pm me. Thank you.
I'd love to have them, but I doubt whether my two 11-year old cats would approve.
That is why we can't have them!! They are lovely though!
Please does anyone have a recommendation for a podiatrist/chiropodist in the sidmouth/exmouth/ottery/honiton area? Anywhere that's within a 30 minute drive.
Sue at the Beacon Medical centre is the only podiatrist has solved a long standing problem of an ingrowing toenail. I have seen 4 Chiropodists in town over the years.
Thank you all for your recommendations.
Welcome to Sidmouth , Please note we have completely different driving laws here . You are allowed to park ANYWHERE , especially on the pretty zig zags that are painted near zebra crossings and even better if they are near a small roundabout. Please ... [ more ]
Exactly what I thought Brian when I first looked at it.
If it t was turning right (as some comments state), the driver missed the turning. It looks to me that the car is outside the Sue Ryder shop; the only right turns are at Newtown at the corner of SR and after that, at Salcombe Road. As you can see ... [ more ]
Just a question rather than a criticism. Can anyone clarify what the Law is regarding horse riders riding through town at two abreast?
Maybe the horse on the inside was inexperienced and was being shielded. In view of the stupidity of some motorists most horse riders don't ride two abreast without good reason.
I've seen a horse or two being ridden through the town and enjoyed the sight (I was walking, not driving) and two ladies on horses came through Salcombe Road, single file, last week. I loved seeing them and hearing the clip clop..........
Does anyone know of someone who could or help me put together a Hutch/Chicken Run combo. It is W.6ft x L.9ft x H.5ft. Includes Apex roof. Having a degree in reading the worst instructions I've ever had the misfortune to come across would be a great ... [ more ]
Thank you Ian, I'll keep you in mind for any more jobs I need doing. He asked for £250 to start with, but I said i would rather pay an hourly rate. I was prepared to pay up to £150 to get the job done in a hurry. I'm not usually that generous though.
I would like to know of a handyman too - not urgently required. For lifting and moving heavy things, cleaning gutters, etc. John M.

Going back to the reason this thread was started, here's a quick recap: The NHS is in crisis. There are staff shortages; closures already of GP surgeries, pharmacies, community hospital beds, and hospitals; and more cuts coming. Social care budgets ... [ more ]
On the BBC News last night, if I heard correctly, it was said that there would soon be a 1.3 Billion shortfall in the NHS funding . Coincidentally I read in the morning paper that the Government plans to spend 1.3 Billion on aid to "middle income" ... [ more ]
I thought I remembered someone on here recently saying something about people congregating around the back of the Drill Hall but I can't find the info now. Does anyone know where the comment can be found please? Or know anything about such activity?
Rozzy, that is very interesting. I can't PM you for further details as I refuse to verify my address; I am not keen on website bodies 'knowing my business' as my Mother-in Law would have said. She was a Lancastrian and obsessed with the fact that she ... [ more ]
Loving this PP! :-)
Has anywhere been flooded with all the rain?
Not in the Sidmouth /Sid Valley area Sam yesterday we only had 7.4mm with highest hourly rate of 2.4mm. It is when we get storm events and more than 25mm falling we could get problems. We had some further problems in Sidmouth last week during the ... [ more ]

can anyone recommend a reliable electrician for a couple of small jobs? Many thanks
I hope Drakes Avenue is local enough for you RS and as a youngster was much closer to the town centre.
Thanks for that Terry. Will give Craig a call.

Thanks Daffie. I have used a house/dog sitting agency for several years. Very happy with people who come to stay and look after my dog, but now very expensive (Plus 20% VAT) so am looking for an alternative. I will definitely look at "mindmyhouse".

Jackie G Got agree with you Jackie on this one ! Also think that something as big as this, should also be non political because they all use it as a political football, which sometimes is not in the best interests of the patients.
Quite right, Peter. A welcome note of agreement to bring this conversation thread to a positive pause.

I don't think the neighbourhood plan will include this type of thing as that's a planning and land use document. But it would be good to see if during the beach management plan process these changes could be considered. If we are changing beach ... [ more ]

Well that's exactly the point HF. It's theirs to make the most out of on our behalf and as you quite rightly say: We do the electing.....and on my behalf they can go ahead and replace it with something much more fitting and in harmony with our town.
This is a message for Jamie Stone, I have found your Nat West card on Beatlands road this morning whilst walking the dog. I will take it into the bank tomorrow unless you pm me. If anyone knows Jamie please pass on this message.
Agree Maggie. The Police can repatriate it with the owner and you don't have the worry then Irene.
Thank you both
