Seafront shelter makeover starts
PUBLISHED: 09:50 14 May 2012
Work on a makeover of Budleigh Salterton's seafront shelter began last week.
The facelift is part of the town council’s celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and will include interpretation boards depicting the beauty of the Otter Valley, the Jurassic Coast and Budleigh Salterton itself.
The vandal-proof boards will show a panoramic view of the town from the beach. Three information panels will be superimposed, featuring a mix of modern and historic photographs and explanatory text.
The whole project will cost around £7,000, mostly paid for by the town council and was the idea of new mayor (from this evening Monday May 14) Courtney Richards.
The interpretation boards have been designed by the Otter Valley Association and will aim to be completed the week before the jubilee weekend from June 2.
Town clerk Jo Vanstone said: “Hopefully the work will start this Wednesday and will take three weeks to complete. It will be weather-dependent.”
