SOLAR BID: Sidford Social Hall will become solar-powered, if a planning application is successful. Blueprints to install sixteen solar panels on the roof of the hub have been submitted to East Devon District Council (EDDC). Proposals last week won the support of Sidmouth town councillors. EDDC will decide the fate of blueprints.
