Guests at the Budleigh in Business launch party at Bicton College's EaRTH Centre in May
With the imminent launch of a community email newsletter local businesses - including Fairlynch Museum - will find yet another useful way of publicising themselves online.Launched on 21 May this year, Budleigh in Business has hit the ground running with a rapidly growing membership and a lively programme of events.
"We believe that, working together we can have vibrant local shopping, busy cafes, restaurants and pubs, a range of high quality local services and become an all-year-round tourist destination."
"One of our new projects is Budleigh e-news – a community email newsletter sent out to residents and friends of Budleigh and the surrounding area once a month. Sections include 'What's on - up-coming events and things to do', 'Made in Budleigh – local crafts people and producers', 'Sales and special offers – in local shops', and 'Other useful things – general advertisers plus useful things you may not have known.'"
"And do please pass it on and spread the word!" asks Trudie.
