Fun in the sun at Fortescue, Sidmouth

Picnic in the sun is hit with Fortescue residents

YOU don’t need an excuse for a party and residents from Fortescue, Sidmouth, enjoyed great food, music and a chat with neighbours in the June sunshine.

For the past three years, a committee of Fortescue locals have organised the outdoor picnic treat.

“People have asked for it to be repeated because it is such a lovely way of getting to know everyone in the hamlet,” said committee chairman Sheelagh Michelmore.

“The committee works hard and it is highly successful. I hope it will go on.”
