FOOD IN FOCUS: Budleigh Salterton Farmers’ Market is featured in a new video which promotes the importance of food traceability and the benefits of buying locally produced food.
The three-minute film From Estate to Plate has been produced by Clinton Devon Estates, and features Clinton ranger and market chairman Tom Garner alongside fellow stall holders and customers.
Tom said: “Consumers are more aware than ever about the source and quality of their food, and our customers who come to the market enjoy buying with confidence knowing which farm their food comes from.”
The film can be viewed at www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXz-yKoYQ0M.
The farmers’ market is held on the last Friday of every month at the Rolle Street Mews car park.
STUDIO HOPE: Plans to build a new garage and studio at a Budleigh home have been supported by the town council.
The plan, for 25 Northview Road, will now be considered by East Devon District Council, which will make the final decision on planning permission.
TREE BID CUT: An application to cut down trees on land at Pinewood Residential and Nursing Home has been withdrawn by the applicant.
The application was made, not by the home itself, but by a resident of Northview Road.
It had been opposed by the Otter Valley Association.
AUCTION: East Budleigh Football Club is holding a jumble sale and auction.
It takes place in the village hall on May 4, at 2pm.
Shoppers are encouraged to get there early to grab a bargain.
CONVERSION: Plans have been put forward to build a rear extension and loft conversion, along with a dormer window, at a Budleigh home.
The plan, for 70 Granary Lane, will now be considered by Budleigh Salterton Town Council, before East Devon District Council makes the final decision.
GOING WILD: A Bicton College student is inviting schools and community groups to get involved in her ‘Going Wild in Art’ campaign.
Final year environmental education student Rachel Bush is holding workshops, where participants can investigate why the African penguin is at risk of extinction, and design the artwork for a 3D sculpture of a penguin.
All designs will be entered into a competition and one lucky school will get the chance to win the penguin and carry out an art workshop to paint on the winning design.
Rachel’s project has gained funding from the Budleigh Lions Club and the O2 Think Big campaign.
To get involved, email Rachel.email@example.com.
GREEN LIGHT: Plans to build a side extension at 66 East Budleigh Road have been approved by East Devon District Council.
Budleigh Salterton Town Council previously supported the plan.
