BLOOM PRIZE: Fairlynch Museum’s gardeners are congratulating themselves on being awarded a 1st prize in this year’s Budleigh in Bloom competition.
The Museum’s Ann Hurt, Lynn Weeks and Sylvia Merkel were delighted to learn that they had gained top spot in the ‘community gardens’ category. Judges were impressed by the garden’s mature planting and its neat and tidy appearance.
EXTENSION: Plans have been put forward to build a two-storey extension at a Colaton Raleigh home.
East Devon District Council will rule on planning permission for the scheme, which concerns Rest Harrow in Church Road.
EXHIBITION: Budleigh’s James Gallery is moving into its second year with an exhibition by Devon artist John Donaldson.
The gallery previously showed Mr Donaldson’s paintings at the end of 2012, and they proved so popular that he was asked to exhibit again.
This exhibition, which runs until September 8, includes a number of very local scenes, such as ‘Looking Towards Budleigh’, ‘Sidmouth Prom’ and ‘Rock and Railings – Jacob’s Ladder’, as well as vistas from France and Italy such as ‘A Walk Through Languedoc’ and ‘A Corner in Venice’.

CAFÉ PLAN: Bicton College has applied for planning permission to open a new café at Bicton Home Farm.
The plan is to convert an unused farm building into a small café and sandwich bar, with the aim of making the neighbouring Bicton Earth Centre more appealing to the general public.
The college has also applied to turn another farm building into a bicycle recycling unit, with the aim of storing and repairing donated bikes, so they can be resold to the general public, rather than going to landfill.
It would also provide vocational training.
East Devon District Council will rule on planning permission for the applications.
GRAVE RESPONSIBILITY: Volunteers are needed to help maintain East Budleigh churchyard.
The next churchyard working party takes place on July 19, between 10am and 1pm, with a coffee break at 11am.

FISHING HUT: Plans to build a fishing hut on Budleigh beach have been recommended for approval by East Devon District Council planning officers.
Officers have also backed a separate, amended scheme for a new home adjacent to 8 Vales Road.
EDDC’s development management committee will now rule on the plans.
GARDENS OPEN: Two gardens in Colaton Raleigh will be open to the public this weekend to raise money for Hospiscare.
The gardens at 4 Quashbrook Cottages in Church Road and The Orchard in Hawkerland Road will both be opening on Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 4pm.
Both gardens will also have plants on sale.
