From Verity Two to another new Westward Ho! hotel - North Devon pranksters pull out the stops this April Fools.

It’s April Fools day, and North Devon jokers have pulled out the stops to come up with some corkers this year.

Some of our favourites included:

Another new hotel in Westward Ho!

A mock up of a ‘brand new 4* hotel’ in Westward Ho!, complete with artist’s impression, baffled a few users of the Westward Ho! Community Facebook group.

Becki Jordan posted the photo and said: “So excited to see the final plans submitted for another luxury hotel hitting Westward Ho! soon.

“A simply stunning 18 room, glass fronted 4* luxury apartment hotel complete with spa facilities.

“Artist drawing from Merley Road perspective on top of The Pier House Westward Ho! Already looking forward to the opening night party...”

Verity Two on Lundy Island

Nigel Dalby posted news of ‘Verity Two’ to be erected on Lundy island, on a much larger scale than the original in Ilfracombe.

Nigel said: “If, as Lundy and Landmark expect, this is met with overwhelming approval and enthusiasm from local North Devon inhabitants, businesses, visitors and art lovers, then we are pleased to announce that there are also already tentative plans in place for a further sculpture to be placed on the island.

“The proposal is that this would be another ‘copy’, but twice the size of the original so as to be clearly visible from Wales. This will be titled ‘Angel of the North End’.”

Baby giraffe for Barnstaple charity

A North Devon charity which runs projects in Uganda shared a picture of ‘its newest addition’ this morning.

Amigos Worldwide posted the picture of the baby giraffe, saying it had been born on Kira Farm that morning.

A new addition

The BIG Sheep in Abbotsham posted about a new addition to the flock this morning.

They said on Facebook: “Our animal care team were amazed today to find a milk chocolate egg had hatched a white chocolate chick!”
