Councillor Dan Ledger EDDC portfolio holder for sustainable homes and communities, said: “This day is a great opportunity for residents to come down and help get to know all the people who work behind the scenes on their behalf at the council and Ian Williams.

“Your councillors and officers want your feedback on how we can improve our residents’ lives

“There is also the opportunity for residents to raise minor repairs that can be completed on the day through our handyman service.”

On the day, the Budleigh community event will have:

  • Food and drink –afternoon tea, soft drinks, tea and coffee.
  • A property MOT service – an operative will be available to carry out any small home repairs in the Budleigh area for residents, fix it on the day or carry out an inspection for any larger works needed.
  • There will be a free skip for residents to throw away anything they no longer need, so they do not have to take it to the recycling and waste centre.
