I can now see how some blogs ( holding my hand up as charged ) do sort of dwindle over time… It’s hard you know… holding down a full time job, meetings at council, governors meetings, extraordinary residents meetings and then trying to get out and about to deliver leaflets – usually in the rain! And then coming home and thinking of something clever, telling and non-libellous to say…

But, when all is said and done, you don’t make an omelette without breaking some eggs so I roll on and offer my wholehearted support to all those who seek to serve their communities and fellow residents in any way that they see fit … The UK has a proud tradition of people pulling together to help those who can’t do so themselves and long may it continue.

May the 2nd is polling day… please tell everyone you know that, whoever they intend to vote for, they must vote as it is the only opportunity we have as a free and democratic country to express our concerns, views and aspirations… and see them realised!

If you have not registered to vote, then Wednesday 17th April is the deadline. Call EDDC election services by the 10th April at the latest to get the necessary papers sent out to you. The 17th is also the last day for receipt of applications for postal votes, again I would suggest the 10th is a realistic deadline.

EDDC election services can be reached on 01395 517402 for help and advice.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE… do not think that your vote does not count… every vote matters and it is the usually silent minority that will change Devon for the better. Less politics and more passion, belief and debate will make this county a glorious place to work, rest and play in.

I’ve got wet eyes now!
