Visit to Newton Abbot Police Station
This morning it was a pleasure to meet with Acting Chief Inspector Adrian Woon and Inspector Andy Tomlinson at Newton Abbot Police Station. We discussed local issues and the modern challenges that the police face including internet crime and drug related offences.
Visiting the Teign Estuary Trail
In the afternoon I met with members of Save the Teign Estuary Trail. The Teign Estuary Trail formed a committee in 2003 to campaign for a cycle and walking track that runs along our beautiful stretch of coastline from Exmouth to Newton Abbot.
They campaign passionately to raise awareness and I was happy to hear first hand what the current state of play is and to offer help in accessing funding form the new government cycling and walking investment strategy recently launched.
If we can increase levels of walking and cycling, the benefits are substantial and there is no finer place to start than here in our glorious constituency!
