I had a very convivial meeting with representatives of the North Devon Journal today, in the form of the Editor Lisa Templeton, Content Editor Joel Cooper and Chief Reporter Fran Taffs.
Council priorities were discussed, such as the leisure centre and the need to address the problems associated with an ageing building. We also discussed the aspiration of having a foot bridge to link Anchorwood Bank to the town centre. It is hoped to get a footbridge near Queen Anne’s building, so that this links up Cross Street into the centre.
We discussed our relationship with the Journal, which I believe to be very good and how we can continue to communicate with them in a positive way.
