In this week’s Totnes Times we lead on a story about the town council voting to support the installation of a rainbow crossing outside Civic Square.

Representatives of the Proud2Be group have been pushing for Totnes to be the first town in Europe to have a permanent multi-coloured crossing as a show of support for the LGBTQ+ community.

The picture story is of the Totnes Young People’s Theatre taking two different plays to four different care homes as part of its end of term festival of theatre.

Inside we have a follow up story after more plastic Otrivin bottles have been washing up on our beaches. We speak to Professor Richard Thompson, who is one of the world’s leading experts in marine pollution and the first person to coin the term ’microplastics’.

As always, we feature information about ’What’s On’, around the clubs, and ’Village Voices’ all inside.

Remember if you can’t get to the shops, or you have moved out of the area, you can get all South Hams Newspapers online here:
