It is with great sadness that Ottery St Mary has to announce the loss of its beloved Phyllis Baxter, who died peacefully on Saturday 22nd September.
Phyllis served for many years as Manageress of the OSM Tourist Information Office until her retirement but continued her unconditional service to the town as a volunteer, until illness forced her to leave behind a job she loved and had done with so much dedication.
We will always remember Phyllis for her enthusiasm, love for the town and for the many photos she took at different events. Her love for the town and the people of Ottery reflected on the beautiful pictures she leaves now as her legacy.
Our most sincere condolences go out to her family. R.I.P. Phyllis, we will all miss you.
Details of funeral arrangements will be published here when we are informed of them.
IMPORTANT ROAD TRAFFIC CLOSURES UPDATE - 25TH SEPTEMBER 2018 (1) AND (2)
(Please note these end dates are to ensure they cover the period)
Please see following link....
UPDATE ON ROAD CLOSURES FROM
CLAIRE WRIGHT 19.09.2018
**NOTICE OF ROAD CLOSURE AND BUS INFORMATION DUE TO FIRE**
We have been led to believe that Silver Street will be closed for some time due to scaffolding and the flat roof being put on over it for protection so that people can work under it.
This will necessitate the installation of some form of support which potentially could block the road and prevent traffic - updates will be posted as we receive them.
Stagecoach buses are now running on schedule from the bus stop at Mill Street at the bottom of Millcroft. They are able to pick up and drop off at the Sainsbury's delivery road on Fairmile Lane. Details of the new location are on the electronic sign at the existing stop outside the butchers in the square.
In addition, the signed diversion will be via Chineway, Putts Corner the A375 and Honiton, to be able to accommodate large vehicles.
