Have you had a good summer? perhaps I should have ask if you have been able to keep reasonably dry, what a summer! The month of August at Devon County has been reasonably quiet, as it takes a while to pick up, getting geared up for the budget process for next year.

We send our love, prayers and sympathy to her family and friends.

A few weeks ago I received the leaflets reminding me that once again the charity will be running the appeal from now until early November.

Many of you have supported the Shoebox Appeal in recent years and been extremely generous in your donations. For those who have not come across the charity before they aim to meet critical needs of child victims of war, poverty, famine, disease and natural disasters throughout the world. Samaritan's Purse are the world's largest children's Christmas project and with our help will continue to be so.

Forgive me if you are familiar with the Boundaries Commission, but that is the most talked about topic within DCC at the moment.  The Boundaries Commission asked DCC and MDDC to put forward their views on Unitary Council. This means that a Unitary Council would provide all the services that DCC and MDDC and put it all under one management. DCC put theirs, which was the whole of the County of Devon to be Unitary status. MDDC view was that they should stay as they are, but with joint working with other District Councils, but if they had to be Unitary, they would join up with East Devon DC and Exeter City.
