“Particular thanks to Mike Hext and his staff at The Kings Arms, Ladram Bay Holiday Park, Otterton Mill, Otterton Parish Council, Clinton Devon Estates – George Perrott and Graham Hill (who both ran in the 10k run), St Michael’s Church, Otterton Village Hall, local farmers Martin Williams, Liz and David Tancock, Betty and Gordon Sage, Mervin Hayman, Robby and Nick Pyne of South Farm Shop and to all those who gave up their Saturday morning to help.”
FLOOD DROP-IN: The Environment Agency and Devon County Council have jointly organised a flood drop-in afternoon on Tuesday (January 15) at the village hall from 2pm to 7pm.
Anyone affected or concerned about flooding issues can drop in and get advice and share their story.
SIGN MOVE: The Otter sign at Otterton is being repaired and will be affixed to the new oak post when finished.
On completion it will be reinstated on The Green – however, it will need to be moved very slightly further onto The Green, otherwise the concrete socket required would impinge on the one securing the water pump.
