New Ilfracombe town councillor

Joseph Bulmer

ILFRACOMBE Town Council has co-opted Peter Rawle to represent its West Ward.

Mr Rawle has been involved with Ilfracombe community organisations for many years and has been a founder member of the Civic Trust, North Devon Marine Conservation Society and Ilfracombe and District Tourism association. He has also been involved with the RNLI, as a trustee of the yacht club and treasurer of Ilfracombe Development Group.

He was born and brought up in Ilfracombe before moving to work in Hong Kong, returning in 1976 to buy the family business.

“I realise what a wonderful place Ilfracombe is to live and work in and I look forward to giving something back to Ilfracombe in whatever form I can,” he said.
