Local schoolchildren have given a helping hand to visitors wanting a seat on Budleigh beach this summer with some commemorative deckchairs.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

The chairs have been produced by Fairlynch Museum, to coincide with its exhibition marking 100 years since the start of World War One, featuring artwork by pupils from St Peter’s and Otterton primary schools and Exmouth Community College.

A total of ten deckchairs have been produced. Some of the seating will be on show outside the museum, but local shops will also be hosting the unusual artefacts.

Budleigh Wines owner James Findlay said: “I think the deckchairs are a great idea

“They’ll be an interesting talking point in the shops and a colourful addition to the town. The Great War is very much part of our heritage and it’s so good that children have been involved in the project.”

The exhibition, The Great War at Fairlynch, will run until September 30, and is scheduled to be repeated next year.

The museum is open from 2pm to 4.30pm daily, except Mondays, and admission is free.

The exhibition has benefited from an award of £6,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
