It was lovely to meet with Bishopsteignton Parent and Toddler Group, a great group of mums (and I'm please to say the odd dad) and their children, who meet in the Methodist Hall; they made me very welcome with a cup of tea and a biscuit. I was able to present them with a cheque for £200 towards toys and equipment. It’s these small groups of volunteers who make a big difference to our lives. We are so lucky in this part of Devon we have so many people willing to devote time to a wide variety of good causes, many of which provide real help and care for people in need. Without them many of our much valued activities would cease overnight. So it’s one of the great parts of being a councillors to say thank you and give something towards their work.
