She said: “We’ve decided to support just one local cause in 2012 so that we can really make a big difference to them. We’re asking for nominations from anyone in Sidmouth who needs a helping hand, whether it’s a mothers and toddlers group, a local children’s football team or a support group of whatever kind.”
Activities will be organised by staff, who hope to raise a minimum of £500 for the chosen charity.
BYRON DISCOVERY: Research into the collection of drawings by John Constable (1776-1837) at Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum, has revealed another portrait of a literary giant: Lord Byron. The pencil sketch was rapidly executed on a pocket-sized piece of paper and bears a strong resemblance to contemporary portraits of the infamous Lord Byron (1788-1824). Its discovery follows one of William Wordsworth last year.
