In this week’s Totnes Times, we lead on a story about a man who said he’s been forced to miss vital physiotherapy appointments since moving over to Universal Credit because he can’t afford to get there.

The military veteran said he has been told he is fit for work, despite evidence from a GP and neurosurgeon.

Our picture story is of an event called ShareFest which was held in opposition to Black Friday consumerism and aimed at focusing on sharing, repairing and making.

We also have an update on the cycle route between Littlehempston and Totnes, thoughts from South Hams MPs Gary Streeter and Sarah Wollaston on Brexit, and recent findings that a tax loophole which means the South Hams is losing out on around £2.5m from the owners of second homes in the area.

As usual there will be the ’What’s On’, around the clubs, and ’Village Voices’ sections inside.

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:
