Guiding Light is ’Not for profit’ supporting local charities.
Our Spiritual evenings are held at ’The Hedley Way Centre’. Follow the brook from the town to the main car park near the rear of the Hospital. We are just over the bridge in the Manor Gardens on the corner of Brook Street.
Residents are invited to an event to celebrate the completion of Network Rail’s work in Dawlish to repair the damage caused by last year’s storms and make the area more resilient for the future.
Over the last few weeks the ‘orange army’ completed the final milestone in their 18-month project to repair Dawlish’s railway line; rebuild and strengthen the sea wall; and carry out cliff stabilisation work at Teignmouth, to prevent any future extreme weather causing the level of damage that occurred last year.
Sections of the Teign Estuary Trail are expected to be included in a funding bid for cycling improvements across Devon which the County Council is planning to submit later this year.
Devon County Council is hoping to put the bid to the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) which, if prioritised, would then be submitted as part of a wider bid to Government for Growth Deal funding.
Thirty Dawlish businesses have joined the campaign ‘Get here on the Riviera Line’ launched by the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership’s Citizens’ Rail project. Window stickers encourage visitors to shops and cafes to travel there by the train on the line which runs from Exeter to Torbay through Dawlish.
Dawlish Carnival week is one of Devon's largest seaside carnivals, taking place over 7 days during August. Lots of free fun and entertainment for the whole family!
The Grand Carnival Procession will take place on Friday 16th August. The route runs for about 2½ miles through the town centre and the procession itself can reach up to over a mile in length - taking 1 - 1.5 hours to pass! The fun starts around 7.00pm.
There are many activities - many of them FREE to take part in - and events happening in and around Dawlish during Carnival week.
Two Devon projects have been recognised by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) South West.
The awards were presented at the ICE Annual Project of the Year Awards in Bristol.
The Community Award was presented to the Exe Estuary Trail project, a cycle and walking route that extends over 16 miles set within the beautiful and sensitive backdrop of the Exe Estuary, on Devon’s south coast. It was described by judges as ‘an excellent example of a civil engineering project which benefits the community in a number of ways’
