This week, we lead with a break-in at family firm Tilley Inflatables near Diptford, and continuing efforts to pick up the pieces and warn other rural businesses.

Inside, there are previews of some of the many festive events taking place this weekend including Ivybridge Christmas Festival and South Brent’s magical Winter Carnival.

We report on the latest developments at Sherford, after a tour of one of the very first of the 5,500 homes to be built there.

We also had a look around The Clay Factory just outside Ivybridge, which is being transformed into an amazing arts and events space.

All this and much more in this week’s Ivybridge & South Brent Gazette, in shops tomorrow.
