NO CITIZEN OF THE YEAR: A citizen of the year award for Budleigh Salterton will now not go ahead.

The idea had come from Mayor Courtney Richard and he said he would be willing to provide a cup to award annually.

He said: “I don’t want to inflict anything on the council that they don’t want so I will withdraw the offer. It is now off the table.

“I’ve got something else in mind now which will be outside the council.”

COMPUTER GIFT: Bicton College has donated 20 computers to the The Employment Academy (TEA) in Liskeard, Cornwall.

The computers were no longer needed due to recent heavy investment in their IT equipment.

The equipment will benefit the organisation which works with unemployed people and those seeking career change to increase their chances of progressing into full- or part-time employment.

Oliver Jones, who collected the computers from the college, said: “These computers will be of great value to our Welfare to Work programme, with IT skills and Digital Inclusion being central to increasing the employability of our learners.”
