The Stoke Hill Community Association is appealing for green-fingered residents to pitch-in and help create a new community garden in the imposing grounds of St Katherine’s Priory on the 26-27 September.

This week has seen the launch of a new community currency in Devon. From 1st September the Exeter Pound has been tradable in about one hundred independent businesses in and around the city.
