MADAM - The Sidmouth Fun Day on April 18 at St John's Ambulance Hall was a great day out for families and older folk alike.

Focusing on Sidmouth being self-sustaining in food and renewable energy, there were many attractions and activities such as driftwood crafts, bag-making and an enjoyable band - "Roots Union".

Tombola prizes were generously donated by Waring Greengrocers, Flo & Us, Trumps, Emily's, Four Elms Fruit Farm, Core Hill Women's Institute, Regency House Antiques, Sweet Temptations and Taste of Sidmouth. The event celebrated Sidmouth becoming a Transition Town. This involves being resourceful in all possible ways. For example, Sid Valley Energy Action Group is looking to heat the local swimming pool with solar power and the Food Group is organising a garden share scheme for local people to grow their own food.

All of this has been initiated by "Vision Group for Sidmouth", working for environmentally friendly development of the locality in view of climate change and the need to conserve the planet's resources. The organisers would like to thank everyone who contributed to making this event a success.
