THERE'S been music everywhere in Sidmouth this week, even in one of its charity shops.
The Sue Ryder Care shop in Radway Place has been encouraging music lovers attending this year's FolkWeek festival to create a soundtrack to their summer on a range of quality musical instruments on sale in the shop.
They can choose from acoustic and electrical guitars, violins, saxophones, tambourines, harmonicas, flutes and clarinets, suitable for beginners and more advanced musicians.
All money raised through selling the instruments will go to providing care for people living with long-term or terminal conditions such as cancer, strokes, MS, dementia and motor neurone disease.

The charity has worked with Mark Griffiths, bass guitarist with The Shadows, to develop a unique collection of vintage guitars.
Mark will join Cliff Richard and The Shadows for a sell-out farewell UK tour in September.
He said: "The Ryder guitars are great value for money - within the student price range but can be used by professionals...they really do deliver."
