A special Budleigh Salterton community day with afternoon tea, drinks and a free skip for household rubbish is being held for residents.
East Devon District Council (EDDC), alongside Ian Williams, is hosting the event outside the back of Greenhaven on Thursday, 21 July, between 11am and 3pm.
More than 100 residents living in Budleigh and other surrounding EDDC homes have been invited to the day.
This is the second event of its sort to be held, following a very successful community day in Sidmouth which was attended by more than 75 residents, EDDC housing officers, councillors and Ian Williams. The day was a fantastic success.
On the day, at Budleigh, there will be:
• Food and drink – including afternoon tea, soft drinks as well as tea and coffee.
• A property MOT service – an operative will be available to carry out any small home repairs in the Budleigh area for residents and fix it on the day or carry out an inspection for any larger works needed.
• There will be a free skip for residents to throw away anything they no longer need, so they do not have to take it to the recycling and waste centre.
• An opportunity to meet the team within both EDDC and Ian Williams.
Councillor Dan Ledger EDDC’s portfolio holder for sustainable homes and communities, said:
This day is a great opportunity for residents to come down and help get to know all the people who work behind the scenes on their behalf at the council and Ian Williams.
Your councillors and officers want your feedback on how we can improve our residents’ lives
There is also the opportunity for residents to raise minor repairs that can be completed on the day through our handyman service.
