Chamber of Trade support 
for auction house plans 

TOWN COUNCIL IS AGAINST CHANGE OF USE OF FORMER LAWSONS PREMISES 


I Anders Larsson 

| Chief reporter \ anders@viewnews.co.uk 

AXMINSTER Chamber of Trade says 
turning down the planning application 
to convert the empty Lawsons building 
into an auction room would be “grossly 
negligent”. 

The chamber has taken a totally different 
view than Axminster Town Council and has 
urged East Devon District Council (EDDC) to 
approve the application. 

The premises were vacated in April by hard¬ 
ware store Lawsons after 24 years of trading. 

Plans for an auction room were quickly an¬ 
nounced but failed to win support from the 
town council, which expressed concerns about 
the safety of the building and the effect an auc¬ 
tion house would have on traffic. 

The town council recommended refusal for 
the change of use planning application, made 
by Philip Atkins. 

But Axminster Chamber of Commerce takes 
a totally different stance. 

In a formal submission to EDDC, chamber 
chairman Shane Morgan wrote: “The new pro¬ 
posal to use the premises for the purpose of reg¬ 
ular auction activities and as a community 
meeting space, in our opinion, is a perfect fit.

“The premises are located between both pri¬ 
vately-operated and council car parks, and will 
no doubt bring regular visitors to not only 
these car parks, but will also benefit the town 
itself. 

“A town with large empty commercial 
premises is viewed as a dying town. 

“We know this is not true of Axminster, but 
we do need to address and promote these larger 
properties to get them occupied as soon as pos¬ 
sible and keep our ‘High Street’ looking vi¬ 
brant. 

“The applicant is clearly going to take steps 
to smarten up the building and along with new 
signage, which we note has the support of your 


conservation officer, can only be a good thing. 

“Not to allow this change of use application 
would be grossly negligent and we therefore 
urge the planning committee to approve this 
application.” 

Local trader Brian Prior, of The Sweet Shop, 
told Pulman’s Weekly News: “The town coun¬ 
cil’s reasons [for recommending refusal] were 
very poor.” 

He felt that the concerns expressed could 
have been solved through planning conditions 
rather than recommending refusal. 

The auction room would only be in place for 
a limited time as landlord Hallmark Estates 
cannot offer security of tenure because the 


building is part of a bigger plan for the whole 
site. 

In planning correspondence to Mr Atkins, 
Graham Barton of Hallmark Estates wrote: 
“Whilst we could find a retailer or two that 
would step into Mr Lawson’s shoes at a per¬ 
fectly acceptable rent, all they wanted (due to 
the shortness of term and unknown departure 
date) was to treat the place like a warehouse 
and a virtual market hall/stall with no mean¬ 
ingful expenditure externally. 

“Yes, it would have been simpler to let one of 
them have it, but in you we see someone who 
has a care for the exterior, which is so impor¬ 
tant in the street/townscape sense. 

“This has nothing to do with revenue for us, 
you are the best occupier for the building and 
the best occupier for the town.” 

About the town council’s building safety con¬ 
cerns (in terms of electrical wiring, escape 
routes and capacity), Mr Atkins said in plan¬ 
ning correspondence: “The safety of the build¬ 
ing I do not believe is a valid planning ground 
for refusal. 

“It is an aspect of the building and its opera¬ 
tion that is covered by terms in my proposed 
lease, not to mention UK and, probably, Euro¬ 
pean legislation.” 

EDDC will make a decision in due course.

New wildlife trust 


PLYMOUTH University academic and TV ge¬ 
ologist Professor Iain Stewart MBE has been 
revealed as the new president of top local con¬ 
servation charity Devon Wildlife Trust. 

Prof Stewart is only the third person to take 
on the honorary role since the conservation 
charity was founded 55 years ago in 1962. 

His appointment was made after a unani¬ 
mous decision by Devon Wildlife Trust’s 15 
strong board of trustees. 

He succeeds Prof Ian Mercer CBE, the emi¬ 
nent conservationist who had held the position 
from 1985 until his death in September 2016. 

Prof Stewart spent a recent visit to Devon 
Wildlife Trust’s Wembury Marine Centre find¬ 


ing out about the work the charity does for 
local people and nature. Prof Stewart spoke of 
his new role as the trust’s president: “It’s a 
tremendously exciting opportunity. Wildlife 
conservation is fresh territory for me and it’s 
going to be a big learning curve, but it will 
allow me to indulge myself in all the things I 
loved as a kid - the natural world and a sense 
of adventure. 

“I thought a lot about whether to take this 
role up with Devon Wildlife Trust. I said yes be¬ 
cause the charity is local to me. They are right 
in my neighbourhood. But I also said yes be¬ 
cause for a lot of people wildlife is an entry 
point to something much bigger. There’s an

overlap between people who are interested in 
wildlife and issues in my working world such 
as climate change.” 

The geologist, who is director of the Sustain¬ 
able Earth Institute at Plymouth University’s 
School of Geography, Earth and Environmental 
Sciences, joined pupils from Coombe Dean Sec¬ 
ondary School, Plymouth, on a guided rockpool 
safari to discover the wildlife which lives in 
Wembury’s many tidal pools. Among the 
group’s finds were shore crabs, pipe fish and 
cushion stars. 

Prof Stewart said: “Spending time with these 
young people you can see there’s loads of en¬ 
ergy, it’s just buzzing. One of the best things 
about this kind of event is that it provides re¬ 
ally simple excitement from being outdoors and 
exploring nature. 

“It’s the kind of thing I did as a child and I also 
did it with my kids on this very beach. You get 
the sense that the children here today don’t 
think they are learning science, they are just 
having fun, which is fantastic. 

“Devon Wildlife Trust is an exemplar as to 
how you can combine good science and a pas¬ 
sionate membership, with effective decision 
making. I’m proud that I am now to be a part of 
it.” 

Devon Wildlife Trust chairperson, Dr Peta 
Foxall, joined Prof Stewart on his visit and wel¬ 
comed the news of the appointment. 

She said: “I am delighted that Iain has ac¬ 
cepted the board’s invitation to become presi¬ 
dent of Devon Wildlife Trust. 

“Iain’s knowledge and expertise as a geologist 
and his infectious enthusiasm for the subject 
means that he will be a great ambassador for 
the work of the trust.”

would now take up. 

He said: “I’m absolutely delighted about Iain’s 
appointment, as I am sure will be our 31,000

Earth Made Us. I have no doubt that he will be 
a wonderful advocate for our work too. 

“Wildlife and wild places remain Devon’s best 
assets but they face some serious pressures 
today. I’m so pleased that Iain has agreed to be¬

cause.” 

Warning over soft toys 

CONSUMERS buying soft toys for young chil¬ 
dren are urged to follow advice from The 
Devon, Somerset and Torbay Trading Stan¬ 
dards Service (DSTTSS) after some failed 
safety tests. 

The warning comes after 40 per cent of toys 
tested by Trading Standards failed seam ten¬ 
sion tests. 

Tension tests ensure that a soft toy is strong 
enough to endure regular use by a child with¬ 
out coming apart. 

In total samples of 15 soft toys, selected at 
random from a mixture of high street, online 
and market retailers were seam tension tested 
under laboratory conditions. 

Six of the 15 failed, indicating that they may 
not be safe for use by young children. 

The retailers and manufacturers have with¬ 
drawn them from sale. The test purchasing 
was part of the service's routine market 
surveillance. 

Devon, Somerset and Torbay Trading Stan¬ 
dards Service recommends that when buying 
a soft toy, consumers should check the age 
warning on the packaging. 

Toys not suitable for children under 36 
months must display a warning because they 
may contain parts which could cause signifi¬ 
cant harm. 

Always ensure a CE mark is on the toy or 
packaging before you buy. All toys, including 
'free' toys that come with magazines or food 
purchases must display this and it shows that 
the toy meets legal requirements. 

Man dies after 
being hit by train at 
Crewkerne Station 

A MAN has died after being struck by a train at 
Crewkerne on the evening of Monday, August 
7th. 

A spokesperson for British Transport Police 
said that emergency services were alerted at 
11.13pm to reports of a man being struck by a 
train at Crewkerne Station. 

The spokesperson added: “A 56-year-old man 
was taken to hospital but sadly died as a result 
of his injuries. 

“It is not treated as suspicious and a file is 
being prepared for the coroner.” 

The last train of the Monday - the up train 
from Exeter St Davids - was cancelled as a re¬ 
sult, and part of the first service the following 
day was also cancelled. 

Services returned to normal by 10.20am on the 
Tuesday. 

• RAIL services through Crewkerne were dis¬ 
rupted on Monday, August 14th after a vehicle 
struck a bridge near the station. 

Engineers were at the site to check the bridge, 
and South West Trains said services through 
the station could be delayed or revised until 
6pm. 

Trains from London stopped and turned 
around in Yeovil. 

Replacement road transport between Yeovil 
Junction and Exeter St Davids was arranged. 

The condition of the driver, and any passen¬ 
gers, of the car which struck the bridge was not 
known at the time of going to press.

tion Unit attended the scene. 

The road was closed for six hours while offi¬ 
cers carried out a forensic examination of the 
scene.

ing for anyone with information to contact po¬ 
lice via 101@dc.police.uk or by phone on 101,

The council con¬ 
tributes more than 
35 per cent of 
CAED’s income and 
the committee were 
keen to hear how 
that contribution is

were unanimous in 
their support of the 
incredible work 
undertaken by 
the CAED, mostly 
by highly skilled 
volunteers, in assist¬ 
ing those in need 
with all kinds of is¬ 
sues. 

These range from 
help with benefit ap¬ 
plications and deal¬ 
ing with personal 
debt, to employment 
needs and housing 
needs. 

The committee felt 
that the service was 
fully accountable 
and extremely good 
value, considering 
the level of service 
that it provides on 
the limited income 
it receives from the 
district council, as 
well as from coun¬ 
cils at county, town 
and parish level. 

Many committee 
members shared 
CAED’s concerns 
about the impact 
that the introduc¬ 
tion of Universal 
Credit could have on 
its services and 
hope that it will be 
possible to encour¬ 


age more income 
from the existing 
regular contributors 
to the service. 

In conclusion, the 
scrutiny committee 
made the following 
recommendations: 

• That Cabinet 
requests an investi¬ 
gation into a longer 
term arrangement 
for grant funding in 
order to give more 
security to the 
CAED, such as a 
three-year agree¬ 
ment with an infla¬ 
tion increase as per 
previous grants (for 
reasons of provid¬ 
ing more stability 
in the service with 
funding commit¬ 
ment); 

• That the council 
is kept informed of 
the progress of re¬ 
view of the CAED 
and is actively in¬ 
volved as a stake¬ 
holder 

Commenting on 
the positive meeting 
between the scrut¬ 
iny committee and 
CAED, committee 
chairman Council¬ 
lor Roger Giles said: 
“The scrutiny com-

New nursery progressing well 



■ PAUL Fitzhenry (Northcott Design & Man¬ 
agement), Lynn Knight, Alison Coleman (both 
Tick Tocks Nursery), Ian Styles and Kelly Apps 
(both Axminster Property Company) at the site 


WORK on the new Tick Tocks 
Day Nursery at Millwey Rise 
is well under way. 

The new premises will be sit¬ 
uated at Weycroft Avenue on 
the Millwey Rise Industrial 
Estate in Axminster and work 
is progressing well, with the 
timber frame having been re¬ 
cently put in place. 

The project is one of several 
led by Ian Styles and his team 
at Axminster Property Com¬ 
pany. 

The Axminster Tools & Ma¬ 
chinery Directors’ pension 
fund is financing the project 
using local designers, trades¬ 
men and materials. 

Consequently, Northcott De¬ 
sign & Management are carry¬ 
ing out the design and build¬ 
ing work, as these two local 
companies have a history of 
working together success¬ 
fully. 

Alison Coleman and Lynn 


Knight, who run Tick Tocks 
Nursery, currently from other 
premises, said: “We are de¬ 
lighted with how the project is 
coming together. 

“The new building will give 
us the opportunity to expand 
our business, providing a 
great facility for families liv¬ 
ing in Axminster and the sur¬ 
rounding area. We couldn’t be 
happier!” 

The facility will allow them 
to double the number of chil¬ 
dren they can currently care 
for. 

Tick Tocks will also be able 
to offer longer opening times 
(Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 
5.30pm excluding bank holi¬ 
days) and holiday clubs for 
children of primary school 
age. 

The two storey building will 
have a ground floor space of 
167 square metres and a first 
floor of 46 square metres with 


a separate building referred to 
as the ‘Play Cafe’ of 86 square 
metres. 

Furthermore, they hope to 
open the Play Cafe at week¬ 
ends eventually and offer sup¬ 
port to families with children 
who have additional needs. 

Another feature is that the 
new day nursery will have a 
covered outside play area 
making it possible for chil¬ 
dren to enjoy outdoor activi¬ 
ties all year round. 

All parties involved with the 
scheme hope to have the new 
day nursery open during Octo¬ 
ber and there will be an open 
day towards the end of 
September. 

For more information about 
Tick Tocks Day Nursery, 
please call 01297 631972, email

uk or visit www.ticktocksday 
nursery.co.uk 


STAFF at Millers Farm Shop in Kilm- 
ington have created a nude charity 
calendar for 2018 to raise money for 
The Project, the Axminster based 
charity. 

The Project helps youngsters with 
mental health issues, as well as pro¬ 
viding support to the parents and 
carers of young people experiencing 
mental distress. 

The idea came about when Kieran 
Marshall, James Miller and Andy 
Drake were planting this season's 
runner beans. 

Mr Marshall, who took the photos, 
said: "Not only do we want to raise as 
much money as we can for The Pro¬ 
ject, we also want to share this cal¬ 
endar with as many people as we 
can. 

"We are all real people with varying 
body shapes and sizes, and all had 
the courage to take part in this, 
which could also be a great way of 
tackling body shaming and to help 
people with body confidence is¬ 
sues." 

Calendars are on sale at Millers 
Farm Shop for £7.99, with all profits 
going to The Project. 

The calendars are also going to be 
sold in Serendip Book Shop in Lyme 
Regis and there are plans to sell 
them online too. 

Sixty copies have already been sold 
from the original print run of 200, so 
another print may prove necessary. 

Mr Marshall added: "We are also 
asking celebrities to sign a copy of 
the calendar, which we will then auc¬ 
tion off. 

"Martin Clunes has already signed, 
with more in the pipeline."

ously led the team at River 
Cottage, Axminster. 

He regularly appeared on 
both the Channel 4 River Cot¬ 
tage series and the Fish Fight 
campaign. 

Tim’s unique menu for the 
evening included ‘Escot grey 


flightless partridge, tomatoes, 
herbs, pasta, and old Winch¬ 
ester cheese’ - a dish prepared 
using grey squirrels. 

A raffle raised over £1,000 
whilst an auction, which in¬ 
cluded a day sail in a private 
yacht in the Solent, a behind 
the scenes tour of Wimbledon 
and an Aston Martin driving 
experience, raised over £3,000. 

The grand total raised from 
the event for RSSW was in ex¬ 
cess of £8,000. 


Busy time for Ottery twinners 


IT'S BEEN a busy summer for Ottery St Mary 
Twinning Association, including celebrating the 
40th anniversary of their association with Pont- 
I'Eveque in France. 

The association also recently visited Cran- 
brook's summer fair, where they had a crepe 
stand with the sole purpose of promoting Twin¬ 
ning in Devon'. 

Members forged good relations and will be re¬ 
turning in October with friends from llsfeld in 
Germany for a presentation by the chairman of 
Cranbrook Town Council. 

At the annual church summer fair in Cadhay on 
Saturday, August 26th, the association is once 
again manning their crepe stand. 

Ottery St Mary Twinning Association chairman, 
Mark Rix, said: "This is one of our main fundrais¬ 
ing events, warmly supported by our members. 
We would love to see you there; do look out for 
our stand." 


The bi-annual visit from German twin town lls¬ 
feld takes place from September 30th to Octo¬ 
ber 4th. This will be the ninth time that llsfeld has 
visited Ottery, the first being in 2001. 

There will be 32 guests coming this year, inclu¬ 
ding their mayor. Councillor Thomas Knoedler. 

Fourteen twinning host families have agreed to 
accommodate the guests during their visit with 
an interesting programme arranged to entertain 
them during their stay in Ottery. 

Events include the formal reception at Otter 
Nurseries featuring an evening's entertainment, 
the morning service at Ottery St Mary Church 
(where, at the end of the service, the 'llsfeld 
Twinning Choir' will perform two anthems) and 
a visit to Plymouth returning via the scenic route 
across Dartmoor. 

New twinning association members are always 
welcome; if anyone would like to join, contact 
Mark Rix on markrix@talktalk.net 



Drama workshop places on offer 


THE Friends of Ottery Libr¬ 
ary (FOOL) group is teaming 
up with Ottery Community 
Theatre to run a series of 
workshops for adults and 
children in September, led 
and coached by local drama 
teacher and actor Ian Pear¬ 
ce. 

Ian said: “These workshops 
are a chance to have a go at 
drama. 

“We will be covering voice, 
movement and facial expres¬ 
sions; acting skills and stage 
craft. 

“It will help with personal 
communication and confi¬ 


dence in all kinds of situa¬ 
tions. 

“During the sessions we 
will be performing small 
pieces of improvised theatre 
and drama games. 

“It will be fun with lots 
of laughs but you must 
be willing to take a few per¬ 
sonal risks to get the best out 
of it.” 

The initiative is being spon¬ 
sored by the town council but 
the three workshops (each 
comprising two sessions) 
will have a small charge to 
cover refreshments. 

Places will be limited so 


you need to register for a 
place without delay! 

Workshops are taking place 
on: 

• Thursday, September 21st 
and 28th for Years 3 to 6, 
4.30-5.30pm; 

• Thursday, September 21st

SIMON Hall, a familiar face 
on TV screens as the BBC 
Crime Correspondent for 
the South West, was wel¬ 
comed to Ottery St Mary li¬ 
brary for a talk on his latest 
book. 

Simon's latest book is a 
crime thriller. Justice Mir¬ 
ror, and he provided an in¬ 
sight into how he develops 
his plots, characters, and 
dialogue. 

Simon, pictured right, 

told the audience about 
how writing can, at times, 
be a lonely existence but 
he particularly enjoys 'peo¬ 
ple-watching' as part of his 
research, mentioning that 
the audience might not be 
exempt from these kind of 
observations! 

He talked about how the 
principles of justice can 
mean different things to 
different people, depend¬ 
ing on their own life experi¬ 
ences, and read a brief 
extract from his book. 

He added that he refrains 
from including science, 
swearing, slop (blood and 


gore), and sex in his writing 
but creates humour in the 
relationships and scenarios 
of what are, nevertheless, 
crime thrillers in which a TV 
reporter and a detective 
work together to solve a se¬ 
ries of crimes. 

Simon also entertained 
the audience with a num¬ 
ber of anecdotes about life 
as a BBC reporter. 

Tricia Doherty, a member 
of the library's friends gro¬ 
up, said: "Simon's light¬ 
hearted manner, and amus¬ 
ing storytelling revealed his 
dry sense of humour and 
made it an excellent and 
entertaining evening." 

Senior Librarian Jane 
Cordy said: "We organise a 
wide range of events in the 
library for all ages, with lots 
of things for the children in 
the summer. 

"Author talks are always 
popular and we are partic¬ 
ularly pleased to attract a 
speaker of Simon's calibre 
and to hear the thinking be¬ 
hind a book."

New X-ray equipment 


THE timetable for buying and in¬ 
stalling new state of the art X-ray 
equipment at Axminster Hospital is 
taking shape. 

Earlier this year it was announced 
that Axminster Hospital League of 
Friends had agreed to donate 
£65,000 - half the cost - towards 
the equipment. 

The league has since announced 
that a site meeting will take place 
on August 17th with all interested 
parties attending. 

League spokesperson Ann Veit 
said: "Shortly after this meeting the 
order will be placed with AGFA, the 
chosen provider. 

"There is then an eight to ten 
week lead time to delivery. Work on 
the room will begin just before the 
expected delivery date allowing ev¬ 
erything to dovetail together and 
minimising shutdown time. 

"During this essential shutdown of 
the X-ray department at Axminster, 
services will be provided at Honi- 
ton, Sidmouth and Seaton. 

"Believe me it will be well worth 
the wait to have state of the art X- 
ray equipment in Axminster Hospi¬ 
tal." 


She also reported that staff in the 
Dermatology Clinic, which runs all 
day on Tuesdays, have asked if the 
league could purchase a dermato- 
scope for use in the clinic. The der- 
matoscope is an instrument for 
viewing moles and other skin can¬ 
cers to help determine what they 
are. 

Ann explained: "Currently there is 
not one at Axminster Hospital and 
Dr Ibrahim, who runs the clinic, has 
to borrow one from the Heavitree 
Hospital and bring it with her. 

"The league has agreed to pay for 
this instrument, which costs about 
£1,300, to ensure continued effi¬ 
cient working of this very valuable 
department. 

"The order has been placed with 
the suppliers. Thank you to every¬ 
one who supports our endeavours." 

League of friends chairman Dr Phil 
Taylor and trustees have also said 
thank you to those who attended 
the AGM in June, and to those who 
have renewed annual subscriptions. 

Ann said: "Without your support 
we would not exist and could not 
support the hospital in the many 
ways we do at the moment." 


Two people hospitalised after gas leak 


TWO people were taken to hospital 
after a suspected gas leak at Crid- 
lake in Axminster. 

People in three adjoining proper¬ 
ties felt unwell, and the ambulance 
service was called at 8.32am on 
Monday, August 14th. 

A spokesperson for the ambu¬ 
lance service said: “There were 
two casualties, both were taken in 
to the RD&E. We attended with 
two ambulances, one rapid re¬ 
sponse vehicle and our Hazardous 


Area Response Team.” 

The conditions of the casualties 
were not disclosed. 

Fire appliances from Axminster 
and Lyme Regis and a supervisory 
officer were mobilised about two 
hours later. 

A spokesperson for the fire and 
rescue service said: “Fire service 
attended and checked inside and 
outside the properties with gas de¬ 
tection equipment. No readings of 
hazardous gases were found.” 


Duck race raises 

MORE than 600 plastic ducks raced down River 
Corrie at Dalwood when Axminster Heritage 
held a fundraiser on Saturday, August 5th. 

A total of 645 ducks entered with the winning 
number 528, owned by Tina Herbert. 

Andrew Moulding of Axminster Heritage 
said: “I think we could have sold more ducks if 
we’d more of them.” 

The event raised about £500 for Axminster 
Heritage. 

Results: 1st (£50) - 528, Tina Herbert; 2nd (£25) - 
610, Ursula Steer; 3rd (£10) - 488, Norman Copla¬ 
nd. Photos by TREVOR MACE 


£500 for heritage group 



■ A CREAM tea, organised by Axminster 
Young Farmers' Club, raised more than 
£4,000 for good causes. 

The event was held on Sunday, July 
23rd at Colcombe Abbey Farm, by kind 
permission of the Voysey family. 

The aim was to raise money for three 
charities: Sands (which supports people 
affected by the death of a baby), CLIC 
Sargent (the children's cancer charity) 
and Moorvision (supporting those car¬ 
ing for a child or young person with a vi¬ 
sual impairment). 

It turned out to be a very successful 
event, and Axminster YFC Secretary 
Alice Gay said: "We cannot thank all the 
local businesss and people who sup¬ 
ported this event with raffle prizes and 
donations enough. 

"The event was a great success and we 
managed to raise a fantastic £4118.34. 

"We were overwhelmed with the 
amount of people who turned out for 
this event despite the weather. 

"There was a really nice atmosphere 
on the day and it was great to see a full 
marquee. Thank you so much to every¬ 
one who supported us."

Tuesday, August 15th 2017 7 


Quacking good time 
had by all in Weston 



HONITON Lions have raised 
around £3,000 for local chari¬ 
ties after running yet another 
successful duck race. 

Hundreds of residents de¬ 
scended on The Otter Inn in 
Weston, on Sunday (August 
13th) to watch thousands of 
rubber ducks bob their way 
down the river, with a whole 
host of prizes on offer. 

All prizes were kindly do¬ 
nated by supporters of the 
Lions, and the top eight finish¬ 
ers all went home with a prize. 

Chilcotts Auctioneers do¬ 
nated £150 for first place, 
which went to Chris Lyle all 
the way from Bournemouth.

ceived £25 from Harts of Honi¬ 
ton. 

The last two ducks home

A spokesperson for the Lions

thank everyone who made it 
along to the race and everyone 
that bought a ticket. 

“The money will go towards 
helping young people’s mental 
health in East Devon, a cause 
that we all agreed was worthy 
of support. It was a fantastic 
day, and thank goodness for 
the weather.”

HOT on the heels of The Cherry Fay re and ahead 
of an Autumn Tea Dance in The Guildhall, Light 
Up Axminster continue their own brand of com¬ 
munity fundraising towards the town’s range of 
Christmas Events (including a Lantern Parade, a 
Festive Market and of course a brilliant Lights 
Display) with a Tug Of War party on Saturday 
September the 9th at Millwey Rise’s old pitch in 
Chard Road opposite Cloakham Lawns. 

There will be a number of classes and it’s 
hoped that not only will bunches of mates take- 
up the challenge and enter teams of six (at £12) 
but also local businesses including perhaps 
pubs, banks, solicitors, estate agents, coffee 


shops and eateries. Most interesting will be the 
prospect of a local football team or two putting 
the honour of their Club on the line. Who would¬ 
n’t relish a pull between the Risers and the 
Tigers?! Or maybe even Firsts versus Reserves 
from the same Club. 

There will be a bar and a bar-b-q along with 
music not to mention something for the children 
too during the event which starts at 5pm and is 
scheduled to draw to a close around 9pm. 

Whether you’re a regular tugger such as a 
Young Farmer, an enthusiastic amateur or a cu¬ 
rious spectator you’ll be very welcome at Axmin¬ 
ster’s very own, Tug ‘17!

Search for musical cow-star 


AXMINSTER Drama Club is on 
the lookout for a very special 
four-legged beast for their pro¬ 
duction in September. 

The group is looking for a 
cow to catapult over the ram¬ 
parts when they perform 
Monty Python's Spamalot and, 
despite exhaustive searches, 
they've so far only managed to 
find miniature mooers rather 
than oversized oxen to do the 
job. 

Lady of the Lake, Nicky 
Sweetland, said, "Despite liv¬ 
ing in a rural setting and the 
fields being full of cows, we've 
really struggled to find a 
replica daisy that we can use." 

Spamalot has become a pop¬ 
ular show for non-professional 
drama companies up and 
down the country. 

The musical is based on 
Monty Python and the Holy 
Grail and its well-known story, 
anarchic humour and catchy 
melodies (including the Python 
favourite 'Always Look On The 
Bright Side of Life') has made it 
a real hit with audiences. 

A professional production of 
the show will once again em¬ 
bark on a UK tour later this year 
and hundreds of societies have 
already signed up for the right 
to perform it in their area. 

The one drawback of pre¬ 
senting the hilarious comedy 
musical for local groups is that 
it can be costly in terms of

both costumes and set, with 
many clubs having to hire in 
props and specialist armour to 
make sure the Knights of the 
Round Table look their best. 

Axminster Drama Club how¬ 
ever, is blessed with some very 
talented set designers, so the 
castle battlements and Trojan 
Horse-style rabbit are not a 
problem, but finding a soft or 
inflatable cow, which can safe¬ 
ly be flung during the famous 
French scene in which the bat¬ 
tle cry 'Fetchez la vache' rings 
out, is proving more tricky to 
source. 

Nicky added: "Looking for a 
special cuddly cow has turned 
into our very own quest and 
we're hoping someone will be 
able to help us 'Find Our Grail'. 

"If you happen to have a life- 
size or large Friesian cow lying 
around that you wouldn't mind 
us tossing, please get in 
touch." 

• AXMINSTER Drama Club is 
performing Spamalot at Axm¬ 
inster Guildhall from Septem¬ 
ber 28th until October 1st. 

If you can offer any help with 
props or costumes, or if you 
would like to buy tickets, email 
Nicky Sweetland at nicky 
sweetland@gmail.com or find 
her on Twitter @NickySweet- ■ AXMINSTER Drama Club needs some bovine 
land assistance with their latest production 



facebook FEEDBACK 


LAST week's story on Bovis Homes requesting planning conditions on 
their Cloakham Lawn development to be relaxed has generated much 
reaction on Facebook. 

Reuby Doobe: Rabbit hutches are slightly better constructed than your 
average Bovis home. Trust me, I worked for them for a year... they just 
want to make as much money as possible at the expense of the con¬ 
tractor or the hutch buyer. Been taking the p*** in East Devon long 
enough. 

Matt Craker: If they couldn't see the slopes, watercourse and leisure 
centre at time of purchase and outline approval, they clearly are em¬ 
ploying the wrong people. Typical greed to be expected by a developer 
who only has its board and shareholders in mind. I'd love to meet the 
stuffed shirt that did the feasibility study on the town and then thought 
it could sustain a development of this size without doubling the 106 re¬ 
quirements for affordable homes, leave alone reducing it. 

Andy Cobbold: Unbelievable - yet again Bovis wriggle. I don't know of 
one development where they have not renaged on agreed planning and 
EDDC fall for it every time. Build better quality homes with real trades¬ 
men and you will sell what you build. EDDC should make them build the 
low cost housing first before a brick is laid for the profit making houses. 
Ross Moughton: I wouldn't live in one of their houses if you bought it 
for me! Rough is an understatement. 

Meg Devine: Good riddance to them. Does anyone know if they have 
sold houses with leases on to bigger fish who then push hefty fees onto 
buyers year after year? Making people's lives a misery and homes im¬ 
possible to sell? 

Ian Tyne: They got away with not building affordable homes in Seaton. 
I expect they try not to on all developments! 

In response, a spokesman for Bovis Home told Pulman's View: "We are 
proud to be building new homes and creating jobs in Axminster and 
have looked to support local businesses and organisations in and 
around the town during our work there, developing some excellent re¬ 
lationships in the process. 

"For instance, we have raised more than £9,000 for Axminster Hospital 
League of Friends. All of our houses at Axminster are sold freehold, and 
feedback from our customers on the quality and design of their new 
homes and the customer service they have received has been excellent 
- with a positive response score of more than 86 per cent since the start 
of 2016 in an independent customer survey from the Home Builders 
Federation, which has risen to 100 per cent this year. 

"The designs of the homes and the living space they offer can be 
viewed at the sales office which is open daily, and our local team there 
will be happy to answer any questions about the homes at Cloakham 
Lawns."

HONITON 


Tuesday, August 15th 2017 9 


The force is strong 


EXEWING Fundraisers held a 
successful day of events in the 
Mackarness Hall recently, 
raising more than £2,000 for 
local charity Hospiscare. 

Hundreds of sci-fi fans ar¬ 
rived at the hall to be greeted 
by daleks, stormtroopers, Dar- 
th Vader, R2-D2 and K-9. 

Special guest Jerome St 
John Blake, pictured right, 
who has had many sci-fi roles 
including the Star Wars pre¬ 
quels, was in attendance all 
day and chatted to attendees 
and signed autographs at 
Honiton Starbase. 

On display were props, cos¬ 
tumes and memorabilia from 
the world of sci-fi including 
original rare items from the 
original Star Wars and screen 
used props from Doctor Who. 

There was a raffle, tombola,

Reporter \ peter@viewnews.co.uk 


face painting and fridge mag¬ 
net painting together with a 
shooting range and remote 



control droids to drive; some¬ 
thing for everyone to see and 
do. 

A spokesperson for the Ex- 
ewing Fundraisers said: “We 
would like to thank everyone 
who attended, donated or sup¬ 
ported us this year and helped 
us to raise such a great total of 
£2,038. The Exewing Fundrais¬ 
ers are proud to support Hos¬ 
piscare who do such a wonder¬ 
ful job of caring for people lo¬ 
cally.” 

Their local co-ordinator 
Lianne Harding said: “Thank 
you so much to Honiton Star- 
base for supporting Hospis¬ 
care with this brilliant event. 

“The money raised helps us 
to provide our outstanding 
care and support to local peo¬ 
ple with a terminal illness and 
those close to them.” 



AROUND 500 people visited 
the Honiton Community Fes¬ 
tival recently, where many 
local local groups held stalls 
and attractions. 

A number of demonstra¬ 
tions were held throughout 
the day at the event which 
was held at Allhallows Playing 
Field. 

These included displays by 
SYTL Karate - which included 
a very useful 'Stranger Dan¬ 
ger' message - the SPS Kick¬ 
boxing group who showed off 
their skills, the lively Honiton 
Twirlstars who put on a great 
performance and musicians 
from the Honiton Youth Or¬ 
chestra who provided some 
great music for the event. 

Officers from Wild East 
Devon made wooden neck¬ 
laces, the Munchkins Minia¬ 


ture ponies offered grooming 
and an opportunity to meet 
the ponies, the Devon Free- 
wheelers provided a wonder¬ 
ful BBQ with tasty burgers 
and hot dogs, and the Honi¬ 
ton Army Cadets displayed 
signs and posters in the street 
directing people to the festi¬ 
val ground. Bertie the bus 
made an appearance with the 
Honiton Lions and could be 
seen doing laps of the field 
with some very happy chil¬ 
dren riding along. 

East Devon District Council 
community development 
worker Penny Hartnell organ¬ 
ised the festival and a great 
day was had by all. 

Councillor Pauline Stott, 
chairman of East Devon Dis¬ 
trict Council's Housing Re¬ 
view Board, said that the 


event was a great success. 

She said: "Our community 
development workers do a 
wonderful job to help the 
community bond together 
with everybody taking part. 

"We have five such officers 
working across East Devon to 
help both young and old get 
something more out of their 
lives and the festival is a great 
example of the work they do." 

Councillor Jill Elson, Portfo¬ 
lio Holder for Sustainable 
Homes and Communities, 
added her praise for the work

AFTER several months of work, 
the Friends of Honiton Station 
group is finally up and running, 
with members saying it’s full 
steam ahead for the project. 

Following the installation of 
colourful planters at Honiton 
Railway Station in March to im¬ 
prove the main platform envi¬ 
ronment, a committee has been 
formed to take the group for¬ 
ward. The committee met for the 
first time at the end of last 
month. 

Martin Long, who is a commu¬ 
nity member of the Neighbour¬ 
hood Plan Steering Group for 
Honiton, was elected as chair¬ 
man and secretary. 

Town councillor Caroline 
Kolek and Stephen Craddock, a 
leading member of the Save 
Honiton Hospital campaign, ex¬ 
plored a number of ideas and is¬ 
sues around the use of Honiton 


station, including ways of im¬ 
proving the experience of people 
waiting for trains to arrive, the 
station environment and poten¬ 
tial service improvements. 

East Devon District Councillor 
Jenny Brown, town mayor 
Councillor John Zarczynski and 
town councillor and Tesco Com¬ 
munity Champion Duncan 
Sheridan-Shaw make up the rest 
of the six-strong committee. 

Councillor Caroline Kolek said 
she was delighted the commu¬ 
nity group is now up and run¬ 
ning, having championed this 
towards the end of her second 
term as mayor. 

The group is meeting again 
later this month to organise a 
public meeting to be held in the 
early autumn to engage with 
local railway users. 

The group will be seeking vol¬ 
unteers to help with the work on 


the station environment. They 
will also be seeking rail users’ 
views about the present level of 
service. 

Concerns have already been 
raised about the hour and 20 
minute gap in services to Exeter 
in the morning rush hour, leav¬ 
ing a number of people opting to 
drive instead. 

Chairman Martin Long said: 
“Friends of station groups have 
proved popular and successful 
elsewhere, including other sta¬ 
tions on the line to Waterloo. 

“They give an opportunity for 
local people to get involved in 
improving their local station 
and to campaign for improve¬ 
ments to their local service. 

“We have a well used station 
with helpful staff, but we want 
to see it get even better and be¬ 
come a real feature of our com¬ 
munity.”

More than 200 people enjoy Beer Flower Show 


BEER Flower Show attracted 
370 exhibits and in excess of 
200 visitors to Mariners’ Hall. 

The show, held for the 92nd 
time, was opened by Monica 
Whyte, who has helped the vil¬ 
lage with its South West In 
Bloom entry. 

Show co-organiser Ursula 
Makepeace of Beer and Dis¬ 
trict Horticultural Society 
said: “We had 69 exhibitors,

which is high considering the 
weather conditions this sum¬

before the show which dam¬ 
aged quite a few flowers. 

“The quality of all the ex¬ 
hibits was excellent and we 
are absolutely delighted that 
so many children came to ex¬ 


hibit. We served the usual 
teas, coffees and delicious 
cakes.

we were visited by a happy 
bunch of people.”

SEATON mayor Cllr Jack Rowland's casting 
vote made Stephen Read a member of Seaton 
Town Council. 

Three candidates came forward for co-op¬ 
tion to fill the seat vacated by Simon Polloni. 

All candidates had been invited to promote 
themselves prior to the town council meeting 
on August 7th, during which councillors 
voted. The three candidates were Stephen 
Read, Daniel Ledger and Amrik Singh. 

Mr Singh was eliminated after the first 


round, and Mr Read and Mr Ledger drew the 
second round 5-5, so it fell to Seaton mayor 
Jack Rowland to decide through his casting 
vote. 

He opted for Mr Read, a retired chartered 
quantity surveyor. 

Mr Read moved to Seaton from near Chep¬ 
stow, Wales, almost three years ago. 

He stood as an independent and has a par¬ 
ticular interest in coastal protection between

Traffic chaos at Stoney Lane? 
It’s every day in the town centre 


■ ‘TRAFFIC chaos’ (front 
pa- ge, Pulman’s View, July 
18 th) is predicted due to the 
demolition of a house in 
Stoney Lane. 

Drivers of cars or commer¬ 
cial vehicles will no doubt 
be greatly inconvenienced, 
and the time required for 
the safe demolition raised 
strong responses at the last 
town cou- ncil meeting, as I 
witnessed. 

A matter which raised 
concern but far less passion 
at the meeting was the regu¬ 
lar daily traffic nightmare 
in the town centre. 

Axminster residents, par¬ 
ticularly those who need to 
walk to shops, library, GP 
and other facilities or work, 
particularly to and from the 
Chard Road end of town, ex¬ 
perience gigantic lorries na¬ 


vigating their way around 
Trinity House corner thro¬ 
ugh to Chard Road, regu¬ 
larly mounting and damag¬ 
ing pavements to do so. 

The proximity of these 
mammoth vehicles is terri¬ 
fying, as they pass barely 
two yards away from pedes¬ 
trians, churning out diesel 
fum- es as they falter and 
shudder their way, particu¬ 
larly when they get stuck in 
other traffic. 

What pedestrians are reg¬ 
ularly breathing in doesn’t 
bear thinking about. Unfor¬ 
tunately these toxins aren’t 
visible. 

Senior (i.e. EDDC and Dev¬ 
on county) councillors are 
said to have been working 
on a solution to this dread¬ 
ful situation for years. 

As many locals do not use 


the internet or may simply 
prefer to look to the local 
paper for information on 
such matters, perhaps those 
in the higher council 
realms, where decisions are 
made, could provide the 
long-suffering residents of 
this otherwise charming 
award win- ning market 
town with som-ething of 
substance, something hope¬ 
ful, as to the cur- rent 
progress of all their work, 
beyond more years of argu¬ 
ments and no change. 

Very few people ever at¬ 
tend town council meetings, 
but it’s the only opportunity 
to see and hear the council 
in action, and to have your 
say in the public forum. 

KATHY HACKMAN, 
Axminster 


■ ON BEHALF of the Lions 
Club of Honiton and Dis¬ 
trict, it was with regret that 
we had to take the deci¬ 
sion of Friday lunchtime to 
cancel the Classic Car Day 
and associated entertain¬ 
ment (Honiton Charter 
Day, July 22nd) at Allhal¬ 
lows field due to unsea- 
sonal weather forecast. 

The predicted thunder¬ 
storms and the threat of 
steady rain throughout the 
day lead us to this conclu¬ 
sion. 


Working in liaison with 
the Charter Day commit¬ 
tee, and in view of the fact 
that the event was to be 
held on the playing sur¬ 
face of the rugby pitches, 
we had no alternative but 
to cancel. 

We would like to thank all 
the people who were in¬ 
tending to support the 
event with stalls and all the 
vehicle owners for their 
understanding. 

HONITON LIONS CLUB 


■ THE recent campaign that Devon 
and Cornwall Police have carried 
out against anti-social driving in the 
area has to be highly praised. 

These idiot drivers have been for a 
long time a dangerous menace to 
law abiding people of the region and 
these individuals have to learn that 
our roads are NOT their own pri¬ 
vate race tracks! 

Well done the ‘Boys in Blue’ and 
let us all continue to make East 
Devon roads safe for all! 

ERIC BOWMAN, 
Seaton 


Axminster: there are hills... 
and, yes, it might get wet! 


Re: Axminster edition, front page, August 
8th; 'Cloakham developers try to 
renege on commitments' 

■ YOUR readers may be interested in this 
confidential document I have obtained. 

It is the report of the surveyor commis¬ 
sioned by Bovis Homes to examine the site 
before they purchased the land in Axminster: 

Dear Bovis Homes, 

Our surveyor has looked up Axminster on 
the internet and formed these professional 
conclusions: 

Devon is very hilly; East Devon is particularly 


hilly; Axminster is in East Devon; There may 
be slopes; Devon is very wet; East Devon is 
particularly wet; Axminster is in East Devon; 
There may be flood plains and water 
courses; The proposed estate would block 
access to popular leisure facilities; There is 
a remote possibility that local people would 
still like to get to these 

P.S Please send large cheque by return. 

No wonder they have claimed such unfore¬ 
seen additional costs! 

JON PRATT, 
Chardstock 


LDF: Thank you for your support 
during Axminster street collection 


■ THE Lord Dowding Fund

Vale Vets 


Neutering your pet 

NEUTERING is a general term used to 
describe an operation that stops your 
pet from breeding. This involves the 
removal of the uterus and ovaries in 
females (also called spaying), and the 
testicles in males (also called 
castration). The operation is performed 
by a Veterinary Surgeon while the pet is 
under general anaesthesia. 

Dogs 

• Females; Bitches are spayed either 
before their first season or after their 
first season, which they normally have 
aged between six and twelve months. 
We recommend that you speak to a vet 
or nurse to decide when is the most 
appropriate time to spay your bitch. 
Bitches are usually in season every six 
months. If waiting until after the first 
season it is preferable to operate three 
months after she finishes her season. 

• Males; Dogs can be castrated from six 
months old. 

Cats 

Females and males; Cats can be 
neutered from four months old. 

Why neuter your pet? 
Neutering can prevent many problems; 

• Pyometra in bitches. This is a 
potentially fatal condition where pus 
accumulates within the uterus. 

• Mammary tumours 

• Testicular tumours 

• Un-castrated or entire dogs can often 
get diseases of the prostate in later life 
or tumours of the anal tissue (anal 
adenomas) 

• False pregnancy 

• Pets wandering or straying 

• Unwanted litters 

• It may be helpful in some cases of 
dominance and aggression problems 

• Urine spraying in tom cats 
Risks associated with neutering; 

• Occasionally incontinence can occur 
in some breeds of bitch 

• In some breeds the coat can change 
texture 



VALE 


These risks can be discussed with your 
vet. 

Other useful information 

We recommend treatment for 
lungworm a week before any surgery. 
This is because lungworm can cause 
unexplained bleeding. 

Weight gain is very common after 
neutering due to the reduced amount of 
energy needed by your pet. A special 
diet or current diet reduced by 30% is 
recommended 

In some dogs and cats one or both 
testicles fail to descend into the 
scrotum. This condition is referred to as 
retained testicles. It thought to be 
hereditary and it is therefore not 
advisable to breed from them. Retained 
testicles can become cancerous, and 
often go un-noticed until the condition 
is well advanced and often involving 
other internal organs within the 
abdomen. We therefore recommend 
that all dogs and cats that have retained 
testicles be castrated. Your vet or nurse 
can give you more information about 
this.

Complaint was ‘part 
of a political smear’ 


Re: Colyton Villages Plan Investigation 

■ I AM very pleased that the complaint against 
me has been dismissed - I fully expected it 
would be. 

Given the timing and the way the allegations 
were brought into the public domain, I believe 
it was part of a political smear campaign. 

I was the Conservative candidate for Seaton 
and Colyton in the county council elections on 
May 4th, standing against the East Devon Al¬ 
liance candidate, amongst others. 

The complaint was made directly to the po¬ 
lice, rather than to the East Devon District 
Council monitoring officer, the usual proce¬ 
dure. 

The complaint would have been confidential, 
and yet Councillor Cathy Gardner, leader of 
the East Devon Alliance, knew about the inves¬ 
tigation and asked a question at the full council 
meeting on April 26th. 

This put the matter in the ‘public domain’, 
which allowed the group to give details of their 
complaint to the press. 

The meeting that I spoke at was the EDDC 
Strategic Planning Committee on February 
20th. I was not a member of that committee, but 
had been asked to represent Colyton Parish 
Council’s views, along with the other ward 
member. 


The committee was not deciding a planning 
application; it was considering a review of the 
built up area boundary around the old factory 
site of CeramTec, in Colyton. This company re¬ 
cently closed their Colyton branch with the 
loss of 80 jobs. 

The parish council were very keen to pre¬ 
serve some of the site for employment use; it is 
fundamental to Colyton’s future employment/ 
housing balance. 

It would be very interesting to know who 
made the complaint to the police and how Cllr 
Gardner knew about the investigation. 

Why was it raised at the full council meeting, 
when it should have been left to the police to in¬ 
vestigate and report back? Who gave details of 
the allegations to the press? 

This was co-ordinated and timed so that I had 
no chance to reply. Members of this group have 
a record of making complaints and being nega¬ 
tive. 

Criticising but having no constructive alter¬ 
natives to offer in return gets us nowhere and 
does nothing for the residents of East Devon. 

I can say no more at present because the mat¬ 
ter is now with lawyers. 

HELEN PARR , 
Colyton 


Tories put 'party before people' 


■ THE closure of hospital 
beds in Honiton and other 
local hospitals is a direct re¬ 
sult of the way people vote. 

If you voted for Neil 
Parish, Sarah-Randall John¬ 
son and Paul Diviani, you 
voted for bed closures and 
cuts in other public ser¬ 
vices - you, the Tory voters 
are responsible for the clo¬ 
sures. 

Neil Parish MP will never 
challenge Jeremy Hunt and 
neither will the DCC Tories 


(Phil Twiss being an hon¬ 
ourable exception), becau¬ 
se at the end of the day 
they put their party before 
people. 

My 94-year-old father is 
currently in a bed in Honi¬ 
ton Hospital prior to him re¬ 
turning home. 

I can take my 93-year-old 
mother the short journey 
from her Honiton home to 
see him and have no prob¬ 
lem parking. 

If you voted Conservative 


then you clearly want my 
father to be treated in Sid- 
mouth or even Exeter, and 
are unconcerned that I wo¬ 
uld have to drive there, find 
and pay for parking and 
push my mother in her 
wheel chair at least half-a- 
mile to be able to visit him. 

Tory voters: please reply 
and tell me why you voted 
for this? 

JOHN BURGESS , 
Honiton 


What will our MP do now? 


■ NEIL Parish MP warns that farm subsidies 
must be continued after Brexit (July 18th). 
Well, he would say that wouldn’t he, presum¬ 
ably having benefitted from them as a former 
dairy farmer. 

While there may be a case for targeted farm 
support payment, the £billions spent on subsi¬ 
dies now have little to do with producing food 
and everything to do with the size of the estate. 

Basically, the bigger your land the more pub¬ 
lic money you get - 20 per cent of subsidies are 
paid to the richest people, including the royals, 
dukes, Saudi princes and billionaires who 
allow their land to be used for fracking, shoot¬ 
ing and blood sports - all of which our MP 
seems to support. 

Mr Parish blusters when he threatens that he 
‘will not allow’ the subsidies issue to be side¬ 
lined. 

As his voting record shows, he is a 99.9 per 
cent Tory loyalist (They Vote for You) includ¬ 
ing supporting the Health and Social Care Act 
which lies behind local bed closures and in¬ 
creased privatisation of our NHS by the CCG. 

He gets worked up about subsidies to farmers 
but not about the effect of the Tory pay cap on 


public sector workers who have had their stan¬ 
dard of living drastically reduced over seven 
years. 

In fact he and Hugo Swire have just voted 
against lifting the public sector pay cap on 
nurses, police, firemen, teachers, etc. 

We have lost 40,000 nurses; staffing vacancies 
are a major cause of the closure of our Honiton 
maternity unit. Given his past pledges of sup¬ 
port, what will our MP do now? 

Will he posture and threaten to ‘hold feet to 
the fire’ as he did over the loss of our hospital 
beds? 

When asked if he would lead a delegation of 
local organisations to the Health Secretary he 
went strangely quiet. 

Will he speak out about his fellow Tories on 
the Devon County Council scrutiny committee 
who have refused even to refer the closures to 
Jeremy Hunt in defiance of local opinion? 

They are obviously all hoping it will melt 
away. Not so - we shall remember.

Thanks for Hot Pennies support 


■ WHAT must have been one 
of the largest crowds of the 
past 40 years enjoyed this 
year's Hot Pennies ceremo¬ 
ny and I would like to con¬ 
vey my thanks not only to all 
those that came and joined 
in so enthusiastically but to 
those who made such a 
contribution behind the 
scenes. 

As always our town crier, 
Dave Retter, provided a 
wonderfully decorated gar¬ 
landed pole, indeed this 
seems to get better (and I 


suspect heavier!) every year. 

The flowers are almost all 
from the gardens of local in¬ 
dividuals and we are in¬ 
debted to them for their 
generosity. 

Thanks are also due to 
those who ensure the cere¬ 
mony can continue in the 
face of ever more stringent 
regulations: Honiton Town 
Council, Lyn Hargood, Tony 
McCollum and his band of 
volunteer marshalls - as¬ 
sisted by the police - and 
Devon Freewheelers who 


ensured all the signs were in 
place and taken down after¬ 
wards. 

This year we are also 
grateful for support from 
Beviss & Beckingsale. 

Last, but certainly not 
least, I would like to thank 
all the shopkeepers for their 
wonderful Hot Pennies win¬ 
dow displays.

IS YOUR SKIN GIVING YOUR AGE AWAY? 


AS THE skin ages, it loses its elasticity and, as a result, can develop fine lines and 
creases; cheeks start to look 'hollow' and lips lose their 'fullness' and definition. These 
can be helped by injection treatments, dermal fillers create definition and add volume 
to the skin and have an instant effect. Other injection treatments offered by the West 

of England Laser Centre include muscle relaxants, 
which injected in tiny purified doses, relax the small 
facial muscles beneath the skin thereby softening 
and diminishing the appearance of lines and 
wrinkles. 

The West of England Laser Centre also hold regular 
laser treatment sessions at Nuffield Health Taunton 
Hospital. Laser treatments offer an extremely precise 
form of treatment for thread veins, unwanted tattoos, 
hair removal, moles and warts and skin pigmentation. 
Our website at www.welc.co.uk provides details on 
all our treatments. For further information or to book

Sounds past and present 

THE pleasure was indeed ours when Richard Monks returned to the Beer 
Wurlitzer to entertain us on Saturday, August 12th, writes Merril Archer. 

Richard delighted his audience with a varied selection of music ably played, 
on the first Wurlitzer organ that was imported to this country. It was a fun af¬ 
ternoon with a varied programme which included some John Williams’s film 
music (Star Wars) and tunes from ABBA. His rendition of‘A Bridge too Far” 
made me think that this instrument, with a competent player at its keys, is 
worth crossing bridges to hear however far away you live. Talking of those 
who travelled far, we were very pleased to welcome a couple from Holland 
who only arrived in Beer yesterday. 

The organ was put through its paces and even a little Strauss filled the air 
showing the brilliance of the percussion instruments sounding from the organ 
chamber. Certainly the afternoon included something for everyone. Thank 
you, Richard. 

The next show will be on Saturday, September 9th at 2.00pm, when the 
Friends of the Beer Wurlitzer are pleased to announce that Paul Roberts, A 
regular Broadcaster in the U.K. (including the BBC) and internationally, Paul 
has also appeared on TV in the U.K. and the USA and been a prolific writer 
for music journals and will be making his first visit to Beer. 

Shows are held at the Congregational Church, Fore Street, Beer, EX12 3JQ - 
admittance is £7.00 on the door, children free, which includes interval refresh¬ 
ments. For further information please visit www.beerwurlitzer.org.uk or 
phone 01297 24892 


Arts society re-launched 


THE ARTS SOCIETY flourishes in our area. Known 
until this year as the National Association of Deco¬ 
rative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS), it re¬ 
branded in May and changed its name. There are 
over 380 separate branches of the Society across the 
UK plus more around the world, all aiming to pro¬ 
mote the arts and inform people who would like to 
learn more about them. 

The South Somerset branch - The Arts Society Ne- 
roche South Somerset - meets very near The Seav- 
ingtons in the conference centre at Frogmary Green 
Farm, South Petherton, just down the lane that runs 
alongside the Lopen Raj restaurant. For anyone who 
isn’t sure, Neroche was the name of a Norman motte 
and bailey castle in South Somerset’s Blackdown 
Hills. The word has featured in the local Society’s 
name since it was founded in 1973, the first NADFAS 
branch in south west England. 

If you love the arts in their widest sense, you 
might like to join Neroche, both to enjoy its pro¬ 
gramme of events and to meet like minded local peo¬ 
ple. New members are always welcome and those 
who want to get a taster first can come along to up 


to two lectures in any season, for a small contribu¬ 
tion. Each season also features visits and in depth 
Study Days held at Monks Yard Ilminster, both open 
to non members if there are spare places. 

This is a great time to consider membership as our 
new programme of illustrated lectures, delivered by 
experienced and nationally recognised experts, 
starts in October. We then meet monthly at 7.15pm, 
usually on the first Monday, until the following July. 

Lecture one on October 2nd will be “Basingstoke 
and its contribution to World Culture”. If that 
doesn’t sound arts connected (we did say arts “in 
their widest sense”) bear in mind that the lecture 
will take a light hearted look at one of the ugliest 
episodes in English architectural history while also 
revealing the older Basingstoke buried beneath the 
post war concrete, plus the few historic gems that 
have survived. 

To find out more about the Society and its 2017-18 
programme, please visit the website at

He said: “I grew up hearing his records, my 
dad had them all. I’ve always been into 50s 
music, in fact the whole band are all real rock¬ 
ers at heart, particularly where Buddy Holly is 
concerned. 

My favourite is ‘Listen to Me’, that’s a beauti¬ 
ful record - and it’s the one where you hear 
Buddy’s speaking voice, which is very moving.” 

Spencer played in numerous rock ‘n’ roll 
bands when he was younger but only gave up 
the day job, in a mortgage office, five years ago. 
He’s been touring with various shows ever 
since and is delighted to be in ‘I Can’t Believe

died in 1959, it’s amazing how popular his 
music still is and it’s a great honour to help to 
keep it alive.”

Ilminster open winners announced 


ILMINSTER Arts Centre’s an¬ 
nual Open Exhibition got under¬ 
way last week, with a grand 
prize-giving event on Monday, 
August 7th. 

The exhibition is open to ama¬ 
teur and professional artists, and 
is on display at the Arts Centre 
throughout August. The exhibi¬ 
tion is known for its eclectic 
scope, and this year over 130 
pieces of art were submitted for 
the scrutiny of a judging panel of 
three well-known artists: Mark 
Beesley and Paul Newman (both 
previous winners of the competi¬ 
tion), and Chris Ackerman (who 
is also a trustee of the Arts Cen¬ 
tre). 

The year’s overall winner was 
Leo Davey whose painting ‘Over 
the Edge, impressed the judges as 
“a strong, colourful image that is 
beautifully presented”. Second 


prize was awarded jointly to 
Marie Blake for her graphite pen¬ 
cil drawing ‘Have your Cake and 
Eat It’, and Philip Winstone for 
‘Formation I, (acrylic). The 3D 
prize was jointly awarded, to Liz 
Kent’s sculpture ‘Rusty Iron’ (ac¬ 
tually made of wood!), and Alice 
Mania’s ‘Cubist’ (made from recy¬ 
cled materials). 

Three artists Highly Com¬ 
mended by the judges were An¬ 
drea Clark, Jan Godfrey, Robert 
Hinton. 

Judge Chris Ackerman, said 
“We were hugely impressed by 
the standard of entries - making 
judging difficult but very reward¬ 
ing! Many congratulations to the 
prizewinning artists on their suc¬ 
cess in such a strong field. We 
would also like to thank Branston 
for sponsoring this prestigious 
event so generously - their sup¬ 


port is appreciated by the Arts 
Centre, and the prizewinners.” 

Judge Paul Newman said “As a 
former winner, I know from per¬ 
sonal experience how much tak¬ 
ing part in the Open helped me as 
an artist, so it’s a pleasure to re¬ 
turn as a judge and support the 
work of other local artists.” 

As always visitors to the month 
long exhibition are encouraged to 
vote for their favourite artwork, 
with the winner of the ‘Visitors’ 
Choice’ award joining the other 
winning artists in an exhibition 
at the Arts Centre in early 2018. 
Look out for the voting slips and 
the white ballot box. 

The exhibition continues until 
Friday, September 1st, and is 
open 9.30am-4.30pm Monday to 
Friday, and 9.30am-2.30pm Satur¬ 
days. Admission is free.

Read Easy Honiton 


READEASY Honiton has presented another certifi¬ 
cate to a Reader who has successfully completed one 
of their courses. Grant Haysom started the initial 
course ‘Yes We Can Read’ in March 2017 and has sig¬ 
nificantly improved his reading skills by completing 
the course. He has made such a success of this that he 
is starting work with his Coach on improving his 
writing. 

Grant said about having had the opportunity to take 
the course, “I was not given the opportunity to learn 
to read at school, as my teachers seemed to ignore me 
and after a time I was left behind. It is just fantastic 
that I have now had this opportunity at my stage in 
life and it has made a huge difference to me, to what 
I am able to do and in particular to my confidence. I 
can’t thank ReadEasy enough for opening this door 
on to a new world for me and I would definitely en¬ 
courage anyone who struggles with their reading to 
give it a go. In particular I would like to thank my 
coach Lesley, who has been amazing”. 

Lesley, his coach, said “It has been an honour and 
a pleasure to teach somebody who has been so enthu¬ 
siastic to learn and to see his confidence grow. I look 
forward to working with Grant on improving his 
handwriting”. 

Grant was presented with his certificate last Fri¬ 
day, 4th August, by the Chairman of ReadEasy Honi¬ 
ton, Colin Sherwood, at Honiton Library, where 
Grant received his training, with his Coach, Lesley 
Percival. Colin said, “It is wonderful to see people 
like Grant take up the challenge of learning to read 
in adulthood. It is not easy to put yourself forward 
and admit that you have this limitation to your life, 
so I admire greatly anyone who can do that. It is so 
gratifying for everyone involved, especially our 
Coaches, to see our Readers progress through the 
process and then make what is effectively a new life 
for themselves, and I am always proud when I have 
the honour of presenting certificates like this”. 

Grant is the fifth Reader that ReadEasy Honiton 
have seen complete their initial course, some of 
whom have moved on to learn to write or to advance 
to the next stage, which is called ‘Moving Ahead’. 
Currently they have a further 8 people in the process 
of going through the initial course. Colin joins Grant 
in encouraging anyone over 18 who cannot read, or 
read well, to contact him on 01404 42130 or by email 
on c.j.sherwood@btinternet.com, so that they too can 
make a life-changing decision. All ReadEasy courses 


are free of charge. 

Colin is also keen to hear from anyone who might 
like to join ReadEasy, either as a Coach or as a Man¬ 
agement Committee member. Currently they have 
vacancies for a Secretary and a Co-ordinator, so if you 
think you may have the necessary skills then you can 
contact him through the above contact details for 
more information. In particular they would like to 
hear from anyone who has recent experience of teach¬ 
ing literacy and is familiar with current methodolo¬ 
gies, and who can therefore advise the Committee on 
such issues.

Choral Society rehearsals 


SEATON Choral Society will hold its first rehearsal of the autumn 
season on Wednesday, September 6th at Seaton Methodist Church, 3 
Valley View, Seaton EX12 2JN, starting at 7.20 pm. 

This is free to anyone who would like to come along, have a sing, 
and decide whether to join, with no obligation to do so should they 
feel it is not for them. 

We shall start work on a wide ranging programme of the music to 
be performed at our Christmas concert in December, including pieces 
by Bach, Elgar, Mozart and others, and ending with a selection of 
carols. Leading us will be Ian Crew, our dynamic new Musical Di¬ 
rector who back in May led the society through an exhilarating per¬ 
formance of Carmina Burana. 

Music will be provided and it is hoped that singers of all voices will 
come along and test the water! The ability to read music is a great 
bonus but not essential - present membership covers a wide range of 
experience and many have learnt to sight- read from scratch through 
the very enjoyable medium of choral rehearsal. The atmosphere is 
friendly and positive, and newcomers will be warmly welcomed. For 
full details contact the Secretary on 01297 24266, email seatonchoral- 
society@gmail.com, visit the website www.seatonchoralsociety.co.uk 
or Facebook page @seatonchoralsociety 


Scrumpy & Western 



DORSET’S favourite cider-swilling musicians Skimmity Hitchers head to the 
Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis for what is sure to be a toe-tapping foot-stomping 
evening of entertainment this Friday, August 18th. 

With their unique blend of humour filled original hits and razor sharp par¬ 
ody songs based around the people, culture and (most importantly!) cider of 
the West Country, this popular band know how to work a crowd and give a 
good time wherever 


Fishing in beautiful surroundings 


STILL WATERS LAKE is a beautiful lake situ¬ 
ated in the heart of the Yarcombe Valley at 
Moorhayne farm owned by Michael and Caro¬ 
line Ford. 

The lake was built nearly 20 years ago and 
was intended to be used as a quiet fishing area 
where those interested in having an away from 
it all fishing day can come and enjoy the peace 
of the area away from the rushing world. 

Michael Ford says that you cannot hear a car 
from any major road but you might from time 
to time hear an aeroplane or the singing of 
every type of country bird. 

The lake is one acre and is designed so that no 
more than 3 people fish it at any one time. If a 
family wishes to take the lake then there is an 
exception in that all the family who come can 
fish. Michael Ford is very ready to give lessons 
to young people who up to the age of 12 can 
come and fish for half price and very often no 
charge is made if the child shows keenness. It 
is quite possible for disabled fishermen in 
wheel chairs to fish and there is are facilities 
near by. 

The lake is approximately 1 acre in size and 
has a small fishing hut, barbeque and comfort¬ 
able chairs which people can use, so the wife 
can come for her afternoon out while the hus¬ 
band fishes. 

The lake has some wild brown trout, some blue 
trout and some reared brown trout but mainly 


they go. Audience par¬ 
ticipation and sponta¬ 


neous shenanigans are 
strongly encouraged! 
The band will be sup¬ 
ported by Glaston¬ 
bury’s quirky folk-pop 
trio John D Revelator. 

Frontman and kazoo 
wizard Tatty Smart 
says “We’re huge fans 
of Lyme Regis and the 
town features in a 
number of our songs. 
We’ve played here a 
number of times and 
always get an enthusi¬ 
astic crowd who love 
getting involved, so 
we’ll be expecting 
more of the same at the 
Marine Theatre!” 

The band have hit the 
headlines on more 
than one occasion; 
from a guerrilla gig at 
the Houses of Parlia¬ 
ment supporting farm 
workers to becoming 
the first Scrumpy & 
Western band to play 
in the USA. Locally 
they have brought 
fame to the Cobb and 
steep hills of their 
favourite seaside town 
with their Elvis parody 
“Viva! Lyme Regis”. 

The bar will be open 
for drinks and snacks 
from 7pm while the fun 
kicks off at 8pm. 

Tickets: full £15, con¬ 
cessions £13. Tickets 
can be bought from the 
Tourist Information 
Centre tel 01297 442138

there are rainbows. “It is strange that they all 
seem to live together because I thought that rain¬ 
bows killed other species” says Michael Ford 
however by the returns of fish every kind is 
caught. 

Visitors are warned to use 101b breaking 
strain of gut because some fish are running up 
to that size and over. 

The lake is open from February to December 
and there is a rule that people should telephone 
before coming to book (the majority do on 01404 
861284) 

Michael Ford welcomes people who wish to 
take the whole lake for a session to themselves 
at no extra cost because he understands how 
important it is to have un¬ 
interrupted peace when 
fishing. 

Stillwaters has a fresh 
water stream flowing 
through it and has spark¬ 
ing water. There is a boat 
that can be used as well 
under supervision.

The key to finding your perfect home 



5 TOP IMPROVEMENTS TO 
BOOST YOUR HOME'S VALUE 


By Julia Gray, Press Association 


If you want to add value to your home, 
which improvements will make it 
nicer to live in and more attractive to 
buyers when you come to sell? 



1. Adding space is one of the best ways to 
improve your home and increase its 
value. If you've outgrown your home and 
can make it bigger by building an exten¬ 
sion or converting the loft, cellar or 
garage, doing the work is often more eco¬ 
nomical than moving to a larger propert. 
Plus, it gives you a chance to create space 
tailored to your needs. However, be care¬ 
ful not to extend your home in the wrong 
way. For example, if you're converting the 
loft to create an extra bedroom and there 
isn't enough living space downstairs for 
the total number of bedrooms, you'll be 
making the house too top heavy. If you're 
concerned about resale, ask local estate 
agents whether the work you're consider¬ 
ing is advisable. 

2. Modernising a home stuck in a different 
decade is always going to add value and 
make it nicer to live in. Central heating is 
a key home improvement because most of 
us want it, but installing it is expensive 
and disruptive, so it's something to do at 
an early stage of a renovation. The same 
applies to rewiring - old wiring isn't al¬ 
ways obvious, but it can be dangerous. 
Having a property rewired is also expen¬ 
sive and disruptive and can create more 
work and expense because you often have 
to replaster afterwards. 

3. It's often said that kitchens and bath¬ 
rooms sell homes, mainly because updat¬ 
ing them is costly and it's not easy being 
without either while the work's being 
done. Day to day, replacing a dated 
kitchen or bathroom with a modern one 
will make a big difference to your life, and 


you can fit a new one inexpensively, al¬ 
though it's not hard to spend a lot. If you're 
able to create one, an open-plan kitchen- 
diner/family room is the most popular 
type of kitchen these days, as it's ideal for 
family life and entertaining. 

4. En suite bathrooms and shower rooms 
are another good way to add value and 
make your home life easier. You should 
have at least one bathroom for every three 
bedrooms, but when everyone's getting 
ready in the morning, there can be a lot of 
pressure on that bathroom. This is when 
an en suite is very handy. It's also useful 
to have a bathroom or shower room on 
every floor where there are bedrooms, so, 
for example, a loft-conversion bedroom 
with an en suite is usually more useful 
and valuable than one without. 



5. In places where parking space is lim¬ 
ited, off-street parking is a big plus and 
most likely to add value in expensive 
urban areas. You may need planning per¬ 
mission for off-street parking and for a 
dropped kerb (to access the off-street park¬ 
ing easily), although the former can often 
be done without planning permission if 
you use permeable materials or have 
other drainage - see the interactive house 
at www.planningportal.gov.uk or ask 
your local council.

Honda reveals fresh look and new 
engine option for Jazz supermini

THE new-look Honda Jazz has 
been revealed ahead of the 2017 
Frankfurt Motor Show. As well as 
updates to the exterior styling and 
interior trim, the new Jazz will 
also be available with a 130 PS (96 
kW) 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine 
for the first time in Europe. 

Exterior changes align the Jazz 
with the latest Honda family style, 
incorporating the ‘Solid Wing 
Face’ headlight signature and 
grille. The front bumper is 
sharply sculpted, with more ag¬ 
gressive contours around the air 
vents. At the rear, shallower grille 
sections are linked by a gloss 
black trim strip above a trapezoid 
lower section. Updates to the exte¬ 
rior are rounded off by the addi¬ 
tion of metallic Skyride Blue as a 
new colour option. 

Honda’s 130 PS petrol engine com¬ 
bines high output with low fuel 
consumption, and complies with 
stringent Euro 6 emissions stan¬ 


dards. It achieves fuel economy of 
52.3 mpg and C02 emissions from 
124 g/km with the optional CVT au¬ 
tomatic transmission. The CVT 
system itself has been revised to de¬ 
liver a more linear and refined re¬ 
sponse under acceleration. 

The 130 PS petrol engine is of¬ 
fered as part of a new Dynamic 
grade, which adds a thinner front 
splitter beneath the lower grille, 
and triple-strake diffuser to the 
rear bumper - both finished with 
a sporty red accent line. Dynamic 
grade also includes LED head¬ 
lights, front fog lamps, side sill 
skirts, a tailgate spoiler and gloss- 
black 185/55 R16 alloy wheels. The 
interior features a unique pin¬ 
stripe pattern on the upholstery 
and a leather-wrapped steering 
wheel and gear knob, all of which 
are enhanced by orange stitching. 

The new Honda Jazz retains the 
exceptional versatility of the pre¬ 
vious model, including boot space 


of 354 litres (up to 897 litres with 
the rear seats folded down) and 
passenger space that is unrivalled 
in the class. Honda’s highly prac¬ 
tical 60:40-split Magic Seat system 
allows for numerous cargo config¬ 
urations, with a maximum inte¬ 
rior loading length of 2,480 mm 
and maximum loading height 
of 1,280 mm. 


Standard equipment on the Jazz 
includes cruise control, automatic 
headlights and the City-Brake Ac¬ 
tive safety system. Higher grades 
feature a 7-inch Honda Connect 
infotainment system, rear-view 
parking camera, keyless entry 
and start, as well as advanced 
safety technologies such as 
Forward Collision Warning, Lane 


Departure Warning and Traffic 
Sign Recognition. 

A 102 PS 1.3 i-VTEC petrol en¬ 
gine will continue to be available 
across all Jazz trim levels, apart 
from the new Sport grade. 

The new-look Honda Jazz will be 
available to order from November 
across Europe, with deliveries 
starting in early 2018.

TVR celebrates 70th anniversary as new era 
dawns for hand-built engineering excellence

IN THE year that sees TVR celebrate 
its 70th anniversary, the company will 
proudly reveal a new sports car that 


takes engineering excellence to a new 
level for the iconic manufacturer. The 
new TVR, to be unveiled to the public 


at the Goodwood Revival Earls Court 
Motor Show, delivers an all-British 
design with outstanding integrity, 
rigidity, reliability and quality. 

Founded in 1947 by Trevor Wilkin¬ 
son, the company first developed its 
own chassis in 1949. Various model 
launches followed, including the 
iconic Grantura and the legendary V8 
Griffith, which won acclaim during 
the 1950s and 1960s. It was during this 
period that TVRs also first began to 
appear on track, starting a motor- 
sport heritage that continued for sev¬ 
eral decades, including several 
factory entries at Le Mans. With too 
many iconic models to list, and a gen¬ 
uinely dedicated following of enthusi¬ 
asts, the anticipation for the new car 
is understandably extremely high. 

Les Edgar, chairman of TVR says: 
"On the 70th birthday of our marque, 


we are entering a new era with a pre¬ 
cisely engineered car that delivers ex¬ 
hilarating performance on road and 
track, as well as everything discern¬ 
ing customers expect of a car in¬ 
tended for everyday use." 

The TVR team has worked tire¬ 
lessly on the development of the new 
TVR, alongside the specialist engi¬ 
neering team at Gordon Murray De¬ 
sign. The absolute priority has been 
to develop a car that is a masterpiece 
of engineering excellence, with every 
aspect of it designed to be class lead¬ 
ing in its strength, reliability and 
functionality, yet simultaneously ex¬ 
tremely lightweight and high perfor¬ 
mance in every way. 

Gordon Murray says : "We devel¬ 
oped the new TVR as a product that 
builds on all the magic and excite¬ 
ment of our hand-crafted British 



■ New TVR interior teaser shot 


motor cars of yesteryear. We com¬ 
bined this with a most rigorous engi¬ 
neering and assembly process design 
to ensure outstanding consistency, 
build quality and reliability." 

The new car will be revealed in 
September with only a limited num¬ 
ber of the Launch Edition vehicles 
still available for purchase. Existing 
customers who have already ordered 
the Launch Edition participated in a 
series of private previews earlier in 
the year, where the response was 
nothing less than rapturous. 

Les Edgar: "Even some of the most 
sophisticated supercars end up with 
the look and feel of homogeneous, 
industrial, mass-produced vehicles. 
Here at TVR, we chose to take a 
route that allows us to deliver a 
unique, hand-crafted and genuinely 
bespoke car."

Quattro times two - Audi expands 
the Q2 all-wheel drive line-up 


AUDI is broadening the appeal of 
its Q2 compact SUV this week 
with the addition of a new ver¬ 
sion notable not only as the most 
powerful in the range but also as 
the first petrol-powered model to 
be underpinned by surefooted 
quattro all-wheel-drive. Offered 
as an alternative to the 150PS 2.0 
TDI quattro model which was in¬ 
troduced late last year, the new 
Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro 190PS S 
tronic is now available in S line 
and Edition #1 specification. 

The new 2.0 TFSI produces the 
highest power output currently 
available in a Q2, facilitating ac¬ 
celeration to 62mph from rest in 
6.5 seconds - the fastest sprint 
time in the range. Top speed also 
reaches an impressive 141mph. 

Ensuring optimal traction 
and handling under any road 
conditions, the quattro system’s 
electrohydraulically actuated 


multi-plate clutch distributes 
torque continuously between the 
axles. Its seven-speed S tronic in¬ 
corporates a freewheeling mode 
when the standard Audi drive se¬ 
lect handling system is set to “ef¬ 
ficiency” mode, and with the 
start-stop function, the engine al¬ 
ready shuts off when speed drops 
to 4.3mph. 

Both contribute to up to 
44.8mpg combined and 144g/km 
when chosen in S line specifica¬ 
tion, and 44.1mpg combined in 
conjunction with 146g/km for 
the Edition #1, even on the 19- 
inch alloy wheels it is fitted with 
as standard. 

Extensively appointed 
inside and out 

Regardless of whether the Q2 
TFSI quattro is chosen as an S 
line or Edition #1, the high spec¬ 
ification of both sets the already 
unique compact SUV apart from 


the rest of the SE and Sport 
range. LED headlights, an LED 
interior lighting pack, S line inte¬ 
rior and exterior styling cues, 18- 
inch alloy wheels, C-pillar blades 
in matt Titanium grey and front 
sports seats mark out the S line. 
This adds to the Audi Smart¬ 
phone Interface, SD card-based 
MMI Navigation and Audi con¬ 
nect infotainment service pack¬ 
age, light and rain sensors and 
Audi drive select already fitted 
as standard to all Sport models 
and above. 

An altogether more impactful 
specification extends to the Edi¬ 
tion #1 - a unique model in its 
own right. In addition to the 19- 
inch Audi Sport alloy wheels and 
Quantum grey paint, which is 
used exclusively here, a black 
styling pack and Manhattan grey 
contrast bumpers, wheel arch 
trims, side skirts and bumper in¬ 


serts all serve to mark out this 
model from the rest. Brilliant 
black C-pillar blades featuring 
the Audi rings complete the look. 

The interior is furnished with 
sports seats in Granite grey Fine 
Nappa leather with Amaretto 


brown contrast stripes and 
stitching, a multi-coloured LED 
interior lighting pack advanced 
that spreads across the inlays 
in a special Format design and 
floor mats also sporting brown 
contrast stitching.

Spot on Sam - Ax off to winning start 


Axminster Town 2 
Galmpton & Roselands 1 

SW Peninsula League D1 (E) 

A SAM Dibling penalty ten minutes 
from time proved decisive as Axmin¬ 
ster Town got their South peninsula 
League Division One (West) cam¬ 
paign underway with a victory at 
Tiger way on Friday evening. 

The Tigers had the better of the 
opening quarter with Gary Spiller 
and debutant Dan Collins both 
squandering decent chances. 

But Spiller atoned for his earlier 
miss when he opened the scoring 
with a neat finish 10 minutes before 
half time. 

Teenage defender Charley Skilton, 
another player making his first 
league appearance in an Ax shirt. 


went close to doubling the lead 
when his cross-cum-shot struck the 
crossbar while Nathan Warren, who 
was influential in the midfield, went 
close with a couple of trademark 
long range efforts. 

What proved to be the winner ar¬ 
rived ten minutes from time when 
Dibling was felled in the area and 
then tucked away the resulting 
penalty. 

The visitors pulled one back in the 
83rd minute through Sam Chorley 
which made for a nervy final few 
minutes for the Tigers. 

Tempers rose near the end when 
Galmpton sub Phil Corvisieri was 
shown a straight red card for an 
awful challenge of Ax right back 
Craig Every. 


Axminster: Brett Garner, Craig Every, 
Charley Skilton, Mark Scott, Darren 
Hutchings (capt), Gary Spiller, Mark 
Smale, Jonny Hurford, Narhan Wat- 
ten, Sam Dibling, Dan Collins. Subs; 
Tony Pinder, Dan Beer, Mike Knight, 
Joe Urquhart. 

Seaton Town 5 Tipton St John 1 

AFTER Heavitree utd failed to raise a 
side, Seaton Town welcomed Tipton 
St John for a hastily arranged 
friendly which completed their pre¬ 
season schedule. 

The hosts were on top from the off 
but found the Saints keeper in fine 
form as the first half goal less. 

But the deadlock was broken soon 
after the restart by new signing Tony 
Pinder and the pressure finally told 


with goals from Seth Wakely and 
Tony Coz making it 3-0. 

Then, after a lack of communica¬ 
tion inside the box, Seaton con¬ 
ceded an own goal as a clearance 
was tapped in the back of the net. 

But midfielder Josh French scored 
twice in quick succession to give the 
score line a more realistic look. 

"We must learn that next week's 
first league game against Exwick 
Villa will not be so easy and fitness 
will play a big part," said Seaton 
manager Brendon Willey. 

Rise beaten 

Meanwhile, Millwey Rise Res went 
down 5-0 in their friendly at Forton 
Rangers despite the best efforts of 
defenders Stuart King and Wayne 
Jenkins and keeper Terry Male.

team gained two points against PINCES 
GARDENS, 18-14 by Malcolm Seaborne, 
Bill Nicholls & Mike Critchley. 

Wet and cold weather at the NATION¬ 
ALS greeted Janet Sherwood, Carole 
Binmore, Yvonne Rayner & Sue Evans. 

But they overcame the conditions in 
their first round to beat Yorkshire but 
succumbed on their last end to lose to 


Sussex. 

The Sussex team made an interesting 
mistake on their 20th end. The skip 
used her last wood to put the jack in the 
ditch and her bowl also a couple of feet 
away from the jack. 

A Honiton bowl lay on the green also 
a couple of feet from the jack so the um¬ 
pire was called on to measure. 

She indicated the Sussex bowl as shot 
but as she lifted it from the ditch saw 
that it had not been marked and so was 
dead and Honiton's wood was declared 
shot. 

The moral of this tale is always mark 
any wood which touches the jack espe¬ 
cially if it ends up in the ditch! 

CHARD with Peter Avery 

THE week began with a disastrous 123- 

29 defeat on the artificial surface at 

Axminster. 

The club then hosted South Petherton 
in the Wessex League and lost 70-66 
with two winning rinks; Norman Con¬ 
nelly, Barbara Ball & Stan Fowler (19- 
15), Barbara Nichols, Doug Hislop & 
Mike Nichols (21-13). 

The Club's internal competitions con¬ 
cluded with a Finals Day last Sunday. 

Teresa Pinder beat Kay Avery to win 
the Ladies' Singles; the Ladies 101 was 
played in a round-robin format and 
Barbara Ball won all of her games to se¬ 
cure the title; 

In the Men's final Peter Avery edged 
out Mike Nichols 21-18 after 26 ends; 
Fred Ward & Maurice Wakeling won 
the Pairs 16-12 against Phil Stringer & 
Brian Smith. 

The Triples also featured Fred and 
Maurice who combined with Maureen 
Fenwick to beat Kay Avery, Peter 
Avery & Stan Fowler 17-12. 

The short mat team secured a 38-26 
win over visitors Stoke-sub-Hamdon; 
The winning triples were Hilary An- 
gold, Roy Vaux & David Angold (15-1) 
and Sheila Tinley, Ron Griffin & Ron

TWO drivers from Seaton battled 
against the changeable conditions 
at the recent Championship race 
meeting at Dunkeswell Kart Rac¬ 
ing Club. 

Ryan Edgecumbe (20) competed 
in the Formula Blue class and put 
in a couple of strong drives during 
the morning heats when the condi¬ 
tions were more favourable finish¬ 
ing heat one in 8th after starting 
19th on the grid in a class of 25 ex¬ 
perience drivers. 

Change in conditions 

He followed this up with a fifth in 
heat two. However, it was when the 
weather turned for the worse and 
conditions were wet that he 
showed his true skill winning heat 
three from a P10 grid start. 

These results secured him a front 
row grid slot for the final, however 


he couldn’t find a way past the ex¬ 
perienced Duncan Mcleod on pole 
who eventually edged out Ryan in 
the second place to take the win by 
0.83 of a second. 

In the Senior Max class Club 
Chairman Jim Bee, was compet¬ 
ing in his first race off Novice 
plates. 

A P20 grid slot for heat one and a 
solid drive resulted in a P17 finish. 
Heat two was more challenging 
with a mid-pack start in P10. 

However, he showed inexperi¬ 
ence and awareness in equal mea¬ 
sure when by the end of the first 
lap he found himself at the back of 
the pack having struggled to get the 
power down at the start which al¬ 
lowed the more experienced 
drivers to get through. 

Heat three in the wet was a bap¬ 


tism of fire as a front row grid start 
in P2 settled into a solid mid pack 
race as the conditions worsened. It 
was only when he lost momentum 
due to being held up another 
driver’s incident but still finished 
13th. 

The final was another wet affair 
and a P18 start tied into a mature 
drive in tricky conditions was con¬ 
verted to a P12 finish, he said: “To 
get through the day in such diffi¬ 
cult conditions and not suffer any 
penalties was a result in itself but 
to finish P12 was brilliant and 
proof that karting is a sport for all 
ages!” 

“It is a credit to the teams behind 
the scenes today, that despite the 
conditions, the race meeting has 
run faultlessly and without inci¬ 
dent”.

Mclean brothers rise to Roseland test 


HONITON RUNNING CLUB 

with Judy Davey 
THREE Honiton Running 
Club members recently made 
the short trip to West Bay for 
the fifth running of the Brid- 
port Runners’ Jurassic Coast 
10k. 

For the second year running 
a half marathon took place 
alongside the 10k. Howard 
Bidmead and Janice Newson 
took on the 10k whilst Mark 
Newson ran the half. 

Both races started together 
and followed the same course 
with a steep climb on the 
coastal path towards Eype and 
then came Thorncombe Hill, 
the second highest point on 
the south coast. 

From here the half 
marathon route continued to 
Seatown and the 10k runners 
made their way back to West 
Bay and the finish. 

Bidmead, who seems to have 
recovered from recent in¬ 
juries, had a super run finish¬ 
ing eighth overall and first in 
the Over 60 category in 58 
minutes 8 seconds. 

Janice Newson found the 
hills tough but still had a 
great run finishing 48th in 
1.16.23. There were 76 finish¬ 


ers. The race was run by 
Adam Gale in 47. 25. 

Mark Newson continued his 
good form with a fine run in 
the half marathon finishing in 
2.01.03 and 22nd overall. There 
were 78 finishers. 

The half marathon was won 
by Ruth Barnes in 1.35.16 - a 
full seven minutes ahead of 
the second finisher and first 
male. 

Last Friday four HRC run¬ 
ners took part in the Forest 
Flyer five-mile trail run at 
Haldon Woods. Mark Newson 
was first back for Honiton 
coming 25th in 35:42. 

Anne Carter and Asilah Jar- 
raid battled against each other 
throughout with the former 
coming 86th in 45:22 with Jar- 
raid right behind in 45:45. 

Rachel Hennessy felt a bit 
queasy during the run proba¬ 
bly because she had given 
blood the night before but she 
did well to come 105th in 48:55. 

AXE VALLEY RUNNERS 

with Dave Mutter 
CLARE Hansford travelled to 
Swanage to compete in the 
170-strong standard distance 
triathlon and was very 
pleased to finish 71st overall, 


eighth lady and 1st V50 in her 
second attempt at this dis¬ 
tance. 

The 1500m swim in a calm 
Swanage Bay took 30:54, an 
undulating 40km bike 1:21:19, 
and a stunning but brutal 
10km run up Purbeck ridge in 
51:22 gave Clare a finishing 
time of 2:46:21. 

Three AVRs contested the 
five-mile Shaves Cross mini 
marathon, a scenic mixed 
terrain race in the Marsh- 
wood Vale including a nice as¬ 
cent up to the foot of Pilsdon 
Pen with a dash on undulating 
ground to finish. 

Kevin Feeney was the first 
AVR home in 41:39 followed 
by David Cooke 43:00 and 
Sarah Shepley 46:35. 

On Saturday Graham New¬ 
ton ran the Horseshoe Stick- 
lepath race, a self-navigating 
route across the high moor¬ 
land of Dartmoor, crossing 
rough unmarked terrain with 
a climb of 1700 feet. 

Graham was pleased, and 
more than a little relieved, to 
finish as first over 65 in 
1:44:48,22nd overall. 

The race was won for a 
fourth time by another AVR, 
Tim Lenton, in an amazing 


1:17:22. 

CHARD RUNNING CLUB 

with Paul Masters 

CRR's headed off to three 

events at the weekend. 

Firstly it was down to Corn¬ 
wall for the Roseland August 
Trail (RAT) followed by Sher¬ 
borne for the Oxley Sprint 
Triathlon and lastly was a trip 
just a little further east to Sal¬ 
isbury 54321 Trail race. 

Representing CRR's Coastal 
trail race were the McLean 
brothers Roddy and Stuart in 
the extremely tough 32 mile 
race crossing the line in 
22nd/183 (Roddy 6h 7m 54s) 
and 24/183 (Stuart 6h 7m 58s). 

Next in the White RAT was 
Fiona McLean who crossed 
the line 61st/124 2h 32m 53s. 

It was then off to Sher- 
bourne with Stevie Potter 
and Celia Cohen taking part 
in the Sprint Triathlon 300m 
swim, 22k hilly cycle and 5k 
run. 

Stevie crossed the line in a 
total time lh 15m 12s 21/141 
and 1st Woman while Celia 
came home 27th/141 in lh 17m 
13s (3rd Women). 

The Last event was the 
Sherbourne 54321 race se-

HONITON with John Pawley 
THE week started with the Seniors 
away match at ENMORE, always a 
popular venue. Mike Sennitt’s 
team arrived with a 4-2 lead and 11 
players - though David Scott did 
eventually turn up, just in time. 

With good weather, and the 
course in its usual tip-top shape 
there was only the Enmore team to 
beat. A 4-2 loss took some of the 
gloss off making the overall result, 
a fitting 6-6 draw. 

Last week’s Tuesday Mixed com¬ 
petition was a Texas Scramble. In 
view of the weather forecast, the 
organisers had contingency plans 
should it be necessary to reduce 
the number of holes being played. 

By the 10th hole each player had 
to have taken at least two tee shots, 
by the 14th it was three tee shots 
each, or five tee shots each over 
the whole course. 

The forecast was totally accurate 
and the heavens opened in time for 
the competition to be reduced to 10 
holes. 

The winning team, with a net 
26.7, was Vera Richardson, Sue 
Kelson, Alan Richardson & Paul 
Ritchie. In second place (27) were 
Linda Northover, Jan Portlock, 
Cyril Dann & John Northover. 
Taking third spot were Sally Chap¬ 
man, Pam Knibb, Tom Chapman & 
Max Pipe (28.9). 

Last week’s event for the Ladies 
was a Flag competition where each 
competitor added her handicap al¬ 
lowance to par for the course (73) 
and this became the number of 
shots she was allowed to play. 

Each competitor left her flag in 
the spot where her shots ran out, 
with the winner being the one far¬ 
thest down the course. 

Poor weather meant that some 
ladies declined playing, and those 
who did got thoroughly soaked. 

The Silver division was won by 
Ann Trayling who put her flag out 
on the 1st (extra hole). Janet 
Hughes and Henrietta Bradshaw 
were next - both finishing on the 
18th Bronze 1 winner was Sharon 


Rouse with Gill Johnson next. 
Bronze 2 winner was Cathy Paw¬ 
ley with Susan Hyde second. 

Once again over 70 members 
turned out for the Seniors Texas 
Scramble on Friday - all of them 
getting in before the afternoon 
rain arrived. 

Work on the course meant that 
only 17 holes were in play and with 
temporary greens, so a team game 
was suited to the conditions. 

It was thought that there 
wouldn’t be any ‘twos’ but no one 
told Peter Blake, so his two on the 
fourth earned him 48 new balls! 

The winning team was Steve 
Butcher, Chris Street & Andy 
Dawe who scored 53.9 to beat Alan 
Devenny, Peter Blake & George 
Smith (55.1) and Mike Sennitt, Vic 
Wood & Tom Stanton (56.4). Fourth 
were the team of John Locke, Mike 
Delaney and Tony Proudfoot (58.5). 

CRICKET ST THOMAS 

with Bert Robinson 
A TOTAL of 37 Seniors braved the 
elements last Monday to enter the 
August qualifying medal competi¬ 
tion. 

Steady rain made the conditions 
difficult, and praise must go to the 
three players who returned below 
par scores. 

Results: Division One; 1st Martin 
Leigh (67), 2nd Frank Martin (68), 
3rd Keith Potter (72) 

Division Two; 1st Richard Hall 
(68), 2nd Stuart Pope (72), 3rd Ian 
Fielder (73) 

The rain continued into Wednes¬ 
day when 33 members played in 
the Silver Salver Trophy. 

The format was a three-man 
Texas scramble played over 18 
holes. 

No team managed a gross score 
of par due to the difficult condi¬ 
tions. 

Barrie Heath’s team posted a one 
over 71, but their lower handicap 
only saw them in second place. 
The honours went to Clive Fisk’s 
trio with a gross 73. 

Result: Winners - Clive Fisk; 


Dave Taylor & Dave Walgrove 73- 
10.16 = 62.84. Runners up Barrie 
Heath; Richard Forster & Maurice 
Arnold 71-7.33 = 63.67, Third place 
Bob Barrow; Bert Robinson & 
Alan Davis 73-8.50 = 64.50 

Friday’s Club Championship was 
postponed ahead of time due to the 
adverse weather forecast. 

However, the rain never materi¬ 
alised and 30 players entered an 
impromptu three-man ‘Irish 
waltz’. 

Two teams were clearly superior 
to the rest of the field and were 
runaway winners, both recording 
scores of 83 points, with Alan 
Davis’s trio taking the spoils on 
the basis of a better back nine. 

Result: 1st Alan Davis; Nobby 
Hodder & Maurice Arnold 83 
points, 2nd Mike King; Dave Tay¬ 
lor & Alan Purcell 83, 3rd John 
Wandless; Barrie Singleton & 
Bryan Frost 78. 

AXE CLIFF with Peter Motsom 
The Mens section played their 
July Stableford, result - 1st Nigel 
Pritchard 40pts, 2nd Anthony Hel- 
lier 36,3rd Alex Gabb 35, Cyril Hel- 
lier scored the only two. 

August Medal - Division One - 1st 
Alex Todd nett 69, 2nd, Anthony 
Hellier 70, 3rd, Stuart Mackie. Di¬ 
vision Two - 1st Bradley Pryce nett 


69, 2nd Gerry Binmore 72, 3rd 
Steve Wakely 73, there were four 
two's; Alex Todd, Anthony Hellier, 
Richard Gibbons and Edd Busby. 

The men played their Byrt Tro¬ 
phy on Saturday when an Axe Cliff 
member invites a member from 
another club to play with him, sta¬ 
bleford format, 7/8ths handicap. 
The trophy goes to the best pair 
and also there is a prize for the 
best home and away individual 
score. 

Result: 1st pair, Steve Baker & 
Tristian Wakeley (Lyme Regis) 
73pts, 2nd pair Alan Ken worthy & 
Bill Kitchen (Dainton Park) 66,3rd 
Jason Farrant & Mark Ward 
(Cricket St Thomas) 65. 

The best home player was Nigel 
Pritchard with 36pts and the best 
away player was Steve Bull with 
34. There were three two's, by 
Jason Farrant, Nigel Pritchard 
and Alan Kenworthy. 

Last Wednesday the Ladies com¬ 
peted in their Flag competition, a 
stroke play format finishing once 
a player had reached par of the 
course plus handicap strokes. 

It was a closely fought competi¬ 
tion between Margaret Kenching- 
ton, Helen Gaudie and Sandra 
Walker who all got to the 17th hole 
but with Sandra closest to holing 
out and so taking the honours.
