www.pigletcottage.com. We have seen quite a few hog roasts in our time, and Piglet Cottage is head and shoulders above the rest. Real quality, a menu, not just pork, bun and apple sauce, and quality of service the like of which one so rarely finds these days.

Blue Geranium florists.  As anyone customer of theirs will tell you, you can’t beat Phil and Don for stunning floral displays and bouquets made with dedicated professionalism.

Devon Irish Set Dancers. As well as enjoying playing the wonderful lively Irish jigs, polkas and reels, Steve also enjoys dancing to them at the Irish set dancing evenings in Newton Abbot each Wednesday. The basic steps are not difficult, the music is great to dance to, and it’s a very friendly crowd who meet at the Jolly Farmer, under the expert guidance of the lovely Maggie Daniel. Come and give it a go!
