Fight to keep Post Office

It is very sad news that the post office at Lower Coombe is to close, it is even worse news that the post office is being given up voluntarily and not as part of an enforced closure plan.

Alex Cross and I have been in contact with Post Office Ltd and Teignmouth Community Association to see where the post office can be relocated in West Teignmouth, without undermining Ashleigh Way post office.

Hospital Parking Victory

Common sense has prevailed! Plans to introduce car parking charges for parking at Teignmouth Hospital have been scrapped. Devon PCT has abandoned plans to introduce charges at Teignmouth Hospitals.

I couldn’t see how it was economic to police the small hospital car park. Having such a marvellous League of Friends has played a major part in persuading the PCT to change its mind, as well as the publicity the Teignmouth Post has given the matter.
