‘Preserving the past, and looking to the future’ is the aim of a new trust being set up to channel funds into projects to benefit Sidmouth and its residents.

One of the ideas that already been put forward is bringing fish, otters and other wildlife back to the River Sid, perhaps by building a fish ladder at the bottom of the Byes.

Another is to build a jetty to help make the fullest use of the sea and beaches.

Suggestions for projects providing new opportunities in education and health would also be welcomed.

The Sidmouth Trust will have a public launch in the near future, and is in the process of setting up a website.

In the meantime, email for more information and to find out how to get involved.
