Public invited to have say on future of Lyme Regis

THE community of Lyme Regis is invited to have a say on the future of the town and the local council.

Lyme Regis Town Council is holding a second Time to Talk event, when the community will be given the opportunity to tell councillors what’s important to the town.

The council held its first Time to Talk in September 2015, when feedback from locals helped inform the authority’s four-year objectives.

The follow-up public consultation on Friday 6 October, from 2pm to 7pm at the Woodmead Halls, will give the council the opportunity to update residents on the progress it has made so far, and its plans for the future.

Councillors and officers will be available to talk to the public about its proposals, listen to feedback on the projects completed so far, and listen to suggestions for upcoming objectives.

Guided Walks and Tours

Liz Jones Memorial Walks

Liz Jones loved walking and sourced over seventy circular walks in the area. For several years she and her husband David led the U3A Walking Group and after she died in April 2013 members of this group decided to make some of her walks available to a wider audience as a tribute.

The Group would like to thank David Jones for his leadership and all his support for this project - rewalking each route and checking our efforts. Our thanks also go to Susie Gamble for creating the model for the walk maps, Sue Wilson for her layouts and technical expertise and Maurice Liddiard for coordinating the project. Click here for more info
