Out in our great Devon countryside

Good boy! A decent (if slightly soggy!) wander in the Devon countryside with Dad. You just can’t beat Devon. I hope you have a good weekend!

Real cider made in East Devon

Great to visit Ventons Cyder in Clyst St Lawrence to meet Mark and discover how they make their delicious cider. I really enjoy the proper stuff and they produce a tasty selection right here in East Devon. I didn’t touch a drop until I got home, naturally!

Fantastic local businesses

I really enjoyed meeting the winners of Exmouth Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. It was great to hear how they've adapted to stay successful despite significant challenges in recent months.

More flights return to Exeter Airport

Great to visit Exeter Airport and hear about the return of flights to Belfast, Malaga, Jersey, Lanzarote, Edinburgh, Corfu & many more. It's great to have an airport on our doorstep in East Devon.

Shovel-ready projects for the South West

I’m delighted the Heart of the South West LEP (covering Devon and Somerset) will receive £35m to support shovel-ready projects in our region and the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities & Local Government is committed to regenerating high streets & town centres.
