A Bay FM radio presenter will be making a grand return to Budleigh Gala Week when he opens the festivities on Saturday, May 28.

Howard James, who presents a Sunday morning show, lived and worked in the town for 10 years and will be returning to launch the event.

He was last asked to open the week-long event more than 10 years ago when he was working for BBC Radio Devon.

Howard said: “The people were then, and are still, wonderful and I was always made to feel very welcome in the town.

“Although I moved away from the area many years ago to concentrate on my media career, my heart and soul have always been in East Devon.”

He added that it will be ‘very nostalgic’ for him to be back on The Green.

Programmes are now available from Greenway Stores, Jottys, Budleigh Pets, Reflections, The Card Shop Too, Tourist Information Centre, Budleigh Grooming and Boutique, Budleigh Barbers and the Village Shops at East Budleigh and Otterton, as well as the Longboat Café.
