NIGHT EVENT CANCELLED: An upcoming Museums at Night event scheduled for Topsham Museum has been cancelled.
The event was due to take place this Sunday, but the museum decided not to go ahead with this as it would have clashed with the Olympic torch relay arriving in Exeter.
The museum hopes to reschedule the event for later this year.
EXTEND: Plans have been submitted to extend a Topsham home.
The plan concerns 14 Newcourt Road, and will now be considered by Exeter City Council.
EXPERIENCE ‘HELL’!: A Topsham restaurant is holding a charity ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ event.
The event at Oliva in Fore Street will see the restaurant’s chefs take each other on to produce a six course tasting menu.
Tickets cost £45, including a charity auction, from which all profits will go to the Exeter Leukaemia Fund.
GUIDED WALKS: The Topsham Society’s free historic guided walks of the town have returned for the summer.
The walks, which will run until September, take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2pm, departing from Holman Way car park.
The walks last around 90 minutes, and finish at Topsham Museum.
EYES DOWN: The latest Topsham Town Fayre bingo evening is taking place at Matthews Hall.
It will be held next Tuesday, with doors opening at 6.15pm for eyes down at 7.30pm.
Cash prizes and a draw will be available.
REMARKABLE WOMEN: Topsham Museum is holding the latest in its series of lunchtime lectures.
It will be given by historian and author Dr Todd Gray, and will focus on ‘Remarkable Women of Devon’.
The lecture takes place at the museum on May 30, with doors opening at 11am for an 11.30am start.
Admission is free, but numbers are limited so early arrival is advised.
Following the lecture, a lunch of soup and crusty bread will be served, at a cost of £3.
TWO-STOREY: Plans to extend a Topsham home have been approved by Exeter City Council.
The plan will see a two-storey extension built at 22 Sunhill Avenue.
SECURE PARKING: Exeter City Council is encouraging Topsham commuters to take advantage of its city centre garages.
The council owns more than 900 garages in the city, which it says can provide more secure parking. For more information, call 01392 265033.
ANNUAL MEETING: The Topsham Society is holding its annual meeting. It takes place at Matthews Hall next Thursday at 8pm.
TWO EXTENSIONS: Plans to modify a home in Clyst St George have been approved by East Devon District Council.
The plans will see two new extensions built at 14 Woodbury Road, along with a new vehicle access onto the road.
