Silent Sunday: Sunny Sidmouth

At last…the sun shines. We took advantage of it with a glorious family stroll on Sidmouth beach.

Silent Sunday: A boost for business in Budleigh

This weekend Budleigh Salterton welcomed visitors to its inaugural Food and Drink Festival, organised by Budleigh in Business.

Three days of cooking demonstrations, local food and drink produce, socialising and plenty of kids activities, the event was wonderfully organised and, I think, a real asset to the town.

I’m really inspired by the local towns around our corner of Devon fighting back and encouraging people to ‘Buy Local’.

Just one of the delicious offerings at the festival, a Caribben curry…

This year we’ve seen the inaugural Ottery St Mary Food and Drink Festival, and next year we can look forward to the first Honiton Sausage and Cider Festival in May.

A welcome boost to the local economy and a clear display of the fighting spirit I’ve come to love from Delightful Devon!
