Break in.

We are obviously being targeted at the moment, another break in, middle of the village, middle of the afternoon yesterday.

Please check again and make sure doors and windows are secure and anything of value in your gardens is locked away or at least out of sight.

If any of you spotted anyone or anything suspicious in the village between 3 and 6 yesterday info to us or direct to 101 please.

While we are talking I’m pleased to say our Emergency Plan response team is now up to full strength with the addition of Mary Rothery and Steve French who have agreed to join us.

Stay safe and please keep an eye on your neighbours and their property, Bernard, Regan and Pam

Cars obstructing entrance to Church Lane

Church Lane now has a sign secured to a stone wall at its entrance, asking people not to park on that corner (because it causes obstructions to residents, bin collection and works’ vehicles) and because there is a grate which needs to be kept clear in case of flash flooding. In spite of this, some cars are continuing to park there. I have taken a photo of a car today, reg WF62 OCG, which has all but squashed the red cone placed on top of the grate to keep it clear. If anyone knows whose car this is, would you please have a word with them and explain why they should not park there? Thank you.

New feedback received from your website

Mr and Mrs Smith

Please rate our website – Excellent
How could we improve? Difficult to know how you could improve it. Packed full of very essential and useful information, all set out in a very easy to navigate format and something of interest for everyone.
The’ local tradespeople’ section is a godsend for anyone needing help, and the Parish Council, Village Hall and shop webpages are an excellent link to what’s going on in the village. We also particularly appreciated the ‘Village Gallery’ with views that perhaps the less mobile of us would never have known to exist.
A credit to the village, and well done to the compiler/s.
Thank you.

Thousands have signed petition calling for MP Selaine Saxby to resign

Thousands of people have signed a petition calling for North Devon MP Selaine Saxby to resign over her comments on free school meals – as the council she still sits on have announced they will use a Local Hardship Fund to help.

The Conservative MP, in a post on North Devon News Facebook group on Friday night under her personal account, stated that she hoped that if eateries in the area were able to offer free food, that they would not require further government assistance.

In the message that was later deleted, the MP for North Devon said: “I am delighted our local businesses have bounced back so much after lockdown that they are able to give food away for free, and very much hope they will not be seeking any further government support.”

Calls have since been made by the Liberal Democrats in North Devon for her to resign, saying her apology isn’t good enough, while North Devon Council, where she remains a councillor for the Instow ward, have said they will be using their Local Hardship Fund to provide financial assistance to schools in the area who then identified and provided direct help to families and pupils most at need.

Coronavirus Latest

Cases rise across Devon and Cornwall – but a sharp drop in Exeter.

Cases in Plymouth and Torbay have seen sharp rises, having doubled in the last week, with a large rise in East Devon also recorded, but are down in Exeter and Torridge

The number of new coronavirus cases confirmed in the last seven days has risen across Devon and Cornwall – but there has been a fall in the Devon County Council area.

Government statistics show that 1,395 new cases have been confirmed across the region in the past seven days in both pillar 1 data from tests carried out by the NHS and pillar 2 data from commercial partners, compared to 1,113 new cases confirmed last week.

Cases in Plymouth and Torbay have seen sharp rises, having doubled in the last week, with a large rise in East Devon also recorded, and small rises in Mid Devon, North Devon, Teignbridge, the South Hams, and West Devon recorded.

But cases in Torridge have dropped, while in Exeter, cases are down by a third on last week, mainly driven by a reduction in cases linked to the University, and a sharp fall in cases in Exeter has outweighed the rises elsewhere in the region to see 13 fewer cases confirmed within the Devon County Council area than last week.
