Service pledge

SIR - We hear so much about cuts to public services these days, please may I reassure Sidmouth residents that Sidmouth Voluntary Services should not suffer in this way.

No government or local grants are received to run our centre at Twyford House and we shall endeavour to keep our prices to a minimum. Fortunately, through a recent donation, we hope not to have to increase our costs on the running of our three minibuses that circulate the town every day taking residents shopping, to meetings or to our luncheon club.

With increase in lettings we also hope to keep our lunches at the same price of �3 for a two course meal cooked on the premises. We do have vacancies for this service at the moment, although we are usually fairly heavily booked.

Unfortunately, one cut that Sidmouth residents will suffer is that the registrar’s office is leaving Twyford House next month and we have been informed that the Registrar will no longer be coming to Sidmouth.
