A questionable butterfly


Pete B

On Thursday this week, there were four families playing on the top section of the lawn in the afternoon ( two football, one rugby and one cricket) when I walked past in the afternoon. Leave it be. Most towns would love a superb space like this. If the playpark goes ahead, is there a chance that it would become a rusting hulk within a couple of years, with poorly maintained equipment etc? ...

On a recent visit to Dawlish, it was great to see how well the well-maintained patch of grass at the top end of the lawn (between the bandstand and the bowling green) was being used. Three different groups of children of varying age groups were having fun playing ball games, a number of families were having a picnic and a group of creative arts types were decorating a large canvas. It was a ...
