The Heart of the South West (HotSW) is theÂ Local Enterprise Partnership for Devon and Somerset. It replaces the former Regional Development Agency and represents businesses across the two counties.
Because it covers such a large area, it is important that the views of businesses in Combe Martin, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe are represented and taken into account when policies are created.
One way of doing this is for individual businesses to participate in the online HotSW forum. You can do this by registering atÂ forums.heartofswlep.co.uk. The more businesses that participate, the more the needs of this area are likely to be considered.
Ilfracombe and District Tourism Association’s 2012 Ilfracombe Visitor Guide and Leaflet are Â now online. Click the links below to see interactive versions.

COMBEbusiness member Ilfracombe Indoor Market welcomes more stallholders to help establish this new addition to the town.
Stalls are available from Monday to Saturday on a daily or weekly basis in the market located in the High Street, Ilfracombe, North Devon.
The market has its own hair salon, also now available to rent. The salon is equipped and ready for a business-minded manager who could perhaps rent a chair to another hair stylist and there is an opportunity to bring in a nail technician.
Manager Kate Helyer is developing cross-promotional ideas for whoever takes on the salon to help build up clientele and there are no business overheads to worry about.
For more details contact Kate on 07843 295803.
