The Exeter-based Express & Echo covers most of East Devon, and every week includes a supplement specially dedicated to that area. This included coverage of last week’s Seniors Congress, seen below. They couldn’t resist the “Pawn Stars” pun, but the coverage is welcome, and the photograph excellent. Reporter:: Fran McElhone. Photographer:: Matt Minshull.
