Councillor Des Brailey, Leader of North Devon Council, said: "Our marquee at the North Devon Show last year was really successful and allowed us to speak to the local community and get their views about plans that we have for the future.
"We decided to come along again this year to learn more so I encourage everyone to talk to us so that we can provide even better services. Of course we can then enter you in our prize draw so it really is worth your while to come along and have a chat."
