You cannot eat a solar panel!

I WRITE in response to the article for a 143 acre solar array at North Tawton.

Do we need to pay GPs to diagnose?

SHOULD GPs be paid for diagnosing dementia? It was announced last week that family doctors in England are to be paid £55 for each patient they diagnose with dementia, in a six-month £5m scheme.

Thanks to the team!

CAN we, through your pages, say thank you to the people from WDBC’s recycling team who very politely called at our house to return an Ipad mistakenly put out for recycling a week earlier? However much people may complain about council services, this was way beyond the call of duty.

Such a negative starting point is not the stuff of a true statesman . . .

Grateful thanks for your generous support

THE Crediton and District Committee of Macmillan Cancer Support recently held collections in Crediton and Okehampton.

Please support Mary’s tea and evening concert!

THE Salvation Army, a worldwide Christian Evangelical organisation, founded by William Booth in 1865 in the East End of London, will be celebrating its 150th anniversary next year.
