The Ottery church bells are ringing for midnight mass on Christmas Eve.
If you have experienced the new care at home system recently please do complete this survey, run by Save Our Hospital Services Devon, who are trying to find out how the service is working on the ground.
I am really pleased that the group is carrying out the survey and I hope it will be presented to councillors on the Devon County Council health and wellbeing scrutiny committee in due course.
Here’s the link. All responses will be anonymised and treated confidentially.

A meeting held last month at Ladram Bay, ended in controversy and anger. See the account here - https://www.claire-wright.org/index.php/post/director_of_ladram_bay_attempts_to_silence_me_at_public_meeting
The letter below is currently winging its way around Otterton.
Many thanks to the residents who are kindly delivering it!
