‘Save Our Fire Station’ protest in Colyton Carnival, this Saturday, 7th, 7.40 pm

Posted on


INVITATION to adults and children to march behind Colyton’s fire engine in the Colyton Carnival procession on Saturday, 7th September bearing placards protesting the proposed changes to our Fire Service and promoting the completion of the consultation questionnaire. Dress boldly in red, orange, yellow or black ~ any combination ~ or come as you are. Costumes are fun but optional. We’ll be singing “We are burning” to the tune of “London’s burning” through the streets of Colyton and, if there are enough of us, we could sing it as a round 😁 Let’s be heard! There are a few placards available to carry but if you could make your own that would be excellent.
Meet up at 7:40pm in Govers Meadow at the Dolphin Street/Kingfisher end. We’ll be walking at a safe distance from the fire engine, which will be leading the procession, as the fire crew will be on call πŸ‘¨β€πŸš’πŸ”₯πŸš’πŸ§―

New sign in Colyford shows cyclists to take the route through Seaton Wetlands, rather than continuing on dangerous Seaton Road

Posted on


Twenty-six months after I was first promised it, this sign is now in place. I hope it will make cycling from Seaton to Colyford a safer ride for visitors. Next stop, the completion of the cycle route through the Wetlands. The County Council has lodged a Compulsory Purchase Order to obtain land for the missing section.

New 40 limit aims on Seaton Down Hill aims to slow down traffic coming into Seaton, and reduce risks of collisions on A3052 at Tower junction

The long-awaited change in speed limit has finally been implemented, in order to reduce the risks of cars entering Seaton at excessive speed – and to make the junction, where there has been a series of minor collisions, safer.

The changes, paid for by my Locality Budget and Seaton Town Council after a long campaign by the Speed Watch team, will be followed by police education activities in September, and then enforcement. Please observe!
