There is still time to enter two competitions being organised by Budleigh Salterton Library.

People have until July 16 to enter a short story competition organised in partnership with author Graham Hurley.

He has come up with the start and the end of a tale and entrants need to submit their version of the middle part of the story.

Winning entries get £100, with the runner up getting £50.

The library also has a children’s competition to win one of five handmade ‘library mice’.

Youngsters between the ages of three and 12 should send a drawing, write a story or a poem with an animal theme. The competition closes on June 20.

Despite the closure of the library due to coronavirus, people can still access services such as e-books and magazines by going to the Devon Libraries website.
