New newspaper for Devon

(Last Updated On: July 22, 2020)

A new informative newspaper, Devon Together, is being delivered to more than 300,000 homes across Devon as an essential guide to services and next steps in the continuing efforts against Covid-19.

The paper is targeted at those who are digitally excluded and has been jointly commissioned by NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group, Devon & Cornwall Police, Devon County Council and the Crime Commissioner’s Office.

It aims to ensure that residents, particularly in rural or isolated communities, are kept up to date on how services are meeting the challenges of the pandemic and know how to get the help they need.

The 16-page colour newspaper will be delivered free directly to homes as well as being offered, where appropriate, in supermarkets and other publicly-accessible settings.

Apart from five years studying in Oxford I’ve lived most of my life in London where for many years I was Head of English in a prestigious girls’ school, but since taking early retirement and heading West to be nearer to my two daughters - settling in Torbay with my wife, Anna, in 2011 - I’ve worked in the voluntary sector. I took on the role of Service Provider, for example, promoting the Red Cross Torbay Navigators Project, while now I’m a Trustee and part of the Media Team for our local Healthwatch. I’m a governor at Torquay Academy, too, giving me the chance to stay up to date with what’s happening in the world of education. Other interests, aside from friends and family, include art and art history, reading - from contemporary fiction and poetry to Elizabethan/Jacobean literature - history, politics, cooking, walking, and music, in particular Bob Dylan, the blues, and early Elvis. I love writing, too, with one novel published so far – Elvis in Wonderland – and another, Who’s There?, that still needs plenty of work!
