The Lions Club of Budleigh Salterton aim to break their fundraising record and raise £5,000 at their annual charity golf day. Read this and more.

DROP-IN: A total of 66 completed questionnaires were returned out of 100 forms given out at the recent drop-in day at East Budleigh’s information point.

The afternoon was to gauge which of four sites residents would prefer to see the development of 15 homes.

Parish chairman Steve Baker said that a formal meeting had not taken place because this was the first stage in what could be a prolonged series of discussions.

He said at the last parish council meeting that a public meeting will take place at a future, more advanced stage.
