- Salcombe Town Council wishes to extend a warm welcome to two newly appointed Councillors, both Lindy Sinnott and Angela Clacy are local ladies who have a invaluable knowledge of the Town and it’s challenges and we are delighted that they have decided to come forward and offer their support and input.
- Salcombe has at last seen the replacement and addition of much needed benches on the Berry, an area at the top of town that was generously donated to the town many years ago. The Berry offers a football pitch facility and wonderful woodland area which is very popular with walkers.
- A huge thank you to Councillor Caroline Bricknell for her hard work in tidying and clearing the overgrown Fairweather Fountain, a memorial at North Sands. Despite the many criticisms of neglect and Caroline’s invitations for people to help, Caroline single handedly worked exceptionally hard, with more work still to be carried out, so there is still time to volunteer your assistance.
- Town Council will be embarking on an anti-dog fouling and “Don’t feed the seagulls” campaign very soon, signs have been obtained and will be installed around town in areas suffering from these problems.
- The Salcombe Neighbourhood Development Plan is progressing to the next stage with steering groups being formulated. People are very much encouraged to come forward as this is a golden opportunity to have real input to the future of the town in particular development within Salcombe Parish.
