IN MEMORIAM: A service to remember loved ones is being held in Budleigh Salterton on Sunday, October 30 at 3pm.

The annual service, at St Peter’s Church, gives those recently bereaved the chance to remember friends or relations and celebrate their life.

During the hour-long service, names of those who have died will be said in church, while family and friends are invited to step forward to light a candle in their memory.

Names to be remembered at the service can now be added to a list at the back of the church.

After the service, tea and cakes will be served in the Peter Hall.

All are welcome.

NO SUPPORT: A request to install a cash machine outside the Co-Op, in Budleigh Salterton’s High Street, has failed to win the support of the town council.

The members said the proposed ATM machine could cause problems for pedestrians as it would be situated on the narrowest part of the pavement.

The council raised concerns for pedestrians attempting to pass cash machine users, saying they would have to step into the road.

The plan will go before the district council, where a final decision will be made.

PLAN BACKED: An application to build a two-storey side extension on a home at 67 Moormead has won the support of the town council.

The members recommended approving the plans with the condition the annexe did not become a separate dwelling.

The district council will make the final decision over the application.
