Collecting petition signatures was just as busy as the previous week.
Locals who last week were not sure about all the issues, this week just signed straight away. The surprise was how many tourists wanted to sign up as they come to Sidmouth every year and did not want it spoiled by further development.
There were people who had come as toddlers and were now bringing their own grand children! One man had first ridden on the ‘Toast Rack’ sixty years ago and had been coming every year since. Visitors think of it as their Sidmouth just as much as the people who live here do.
