COMMUTER SANDWICHES: Devon in Sight’s morning café service has launched a new lunch offer.

Zoe’s Café, based at the charity’s Station House resource centre, is open between 7.30am and 9.30am – ideal for rail users – with the profits going to the charity.

And now, it will make commuters the sandwich of their choice in advance, to collect for just £1.

Volunteer Zoe Harden-England said: “If you want me to make you a sandwich for you to take to work in the morning, all you have to do is email or call us before 4pm the day before and I’ll prepare a tasty treat ready for you to pick up.

“At the moment we’ve got a choice of paté and cucumber, tuna mayonnaise, egg mayonnaise, and cheese and pickle fillings – all for just £1.”

To order sandwiches, email temp@devoninsight.org.uk or call 01392 878802.

SERVICES’ MEMORIAL: A new memorial to servicemen from Exeter who have died during active service since World War Two is to be unveiled.

The memorial, in Northernhay Gardens, will be unveiled on September 10 at 10.30am, by Lord Mayor of Exeter and Topsham councillor Rob Newby, and Air Chief Marshall Sir Stuart Peach.

It will be inscribed with the names of the 10 Exeter servicemen who have lost their lives in conflicts overseas, including those in Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan, and will complement the existing War Memorial, which was unveiled in 1923.

Councillor Newby said: “As a city, we already honour our dead from the two Great Wars, and it is fitting that we honour those who have fallen since 1945. This memorial allows us to do just that.”
