THE people of Appledore are now being given their say on proposals to reinstate the historic cross-estuary ferry between the village and Instow.

Between 40 and 50 people attended a public meeting in Instow called by local county councillors Rodney Cann and Andrew Eastman and gave support to the idea. A small working party was set up.

Now a second meeting has been organised at the Blue Lights Hall in Vernons Lane, Appledore, at 7pm on Tuesday, April 13, to hear views and gauge support from the other side of the river and, hopefully, establish a joint approach.

The former Instow /Appledore Ferry closed down in October 2007. It was the end of a service that had been running for more than 200 years.
