I used to have a part to play in traffic management at Powderham music events the public attending these events drive to Powderham park in the grounds and then leave on mass when the event finishes and bring everything with them. The only people who benifit from these events are those at Powderham, why would anyone once parked at Powderham leave to buy ice cream, a coffe,pastie etc in Dawlish ...
I know who will benifit the COURTENAY'S.
If you talk to shop owners in Dawlish you will find that there biggest concern is the loss of the Air Show that had real financial benifits for them, for some it was the one day that kept them afloat and allowed them to trade for a further year. We need events in Dawlish not at Powderham, it may be folk will be a little better of this season with lower fuel prices but will they decide to holliday ...
Not a lot they will drive in to Powderham then drive home they will arrive before it starts bringing there food drink seats etc etc then stay all day and drive home, when did a concert at Powderham benifit Dawlish never.
I have a HP Desktop 2510 printer to give away it has all the leads no install disk but thats available online it may need ink Printhead have them its been standing around for 6 months so they may have dried out message me if you want it can deliver but only Dawlish.
Well thanks Fred for starting my day with a smile but you could be close to the mark.
I wonder what the next idea for regeneration will be when they find that thousands of cyclists haven't used the new cycle path.
But Fred the extension to the cycle path is going to regenerate the town centre so the powers that be tell us.
From what i understand from tonights news it could be well into the 2020s before any decision is made after the study has taken place in my mind that means never.
It's only going to get worse with more and more disruption as the year's go on recent reports say we could have no train service for up to a third of the year as climate change takes hold so just get used to it people you aint seen nothing yet.
