HOPPER HOPE: The Donkey Sanctuary now rivals Connaught Gardens as the most popular venue by users of Sidmouth’s Hopper Bus, according to one of its driving forces.
The service, which has completed eight years in operation, will run as normal from June to the end of September this year.
Town councillor and Hopper co-ordinator, John Dyson, said it is hoped every circuit of the bus will take in The Donkey Sanctuary this year.
He added that the 16-seater bus carried more than 11,000 passengers in 2011.
The service is now completely financed from sources within Sidmouth. Businesses, the Keith Owen Fund and the town council fund the bus.
CHARITY CONCERT: A Sidmouth performance by the Budleigh Male Voice Choir that will boost Macmillan Cancer Support.
The concert will take place at Sidmouth Methodist Church, High Street, at 7.30pm on Saturday, May 12.
Accompanying the choir will be soprano Val Howels.
Tickets (£10) are available from Paragon Books in High Street.
