Two Budleigh youngsters have produced a film to help save Budleigh Library – and had some help from some top authors.

Oliver MacAllister and Milo Godwin-Coombes, both aged 12, both put together the film, which you can see here, having filmed interviews with Paddy Ashdown, Fay Weldon, and Sarah McIntyre, among others.

The library could be at risk following a Devon County Council consultation, if more community involvement in its running is not found.

For the full story, see today’s Budleigh Journal.
