BARNSTAPLE Lions Club is launching a "message in a bottle" scheme. With the help of a £400 donation from Western Power Social Club the Lions have bought 2,000 special message bottles for distribution to elderly and vulnerable people living at home. Recipients enclose their medical and contact details in one of the plastic bottles, which is then labelled and kept in their fridge. Emergency services are aware of the free scheme
