HELP SAVE OUR PARISH MAGAZINE
We have had a Parish magazine in Ogwell over 30 years. We have at least 300 subscribers plus those who read it in The Jolly Sailor and the Church. Many people in the village consider the magazine their key source of local information and a window on what is happening in the local community. Our current editor is retiring in MAY and if we cannot find anyone (or a group of people) to replace her the magazine will cease to exist.
There is already a team in place who manage the advertisers, collect subscriptions, arrange delivery and provide articles.
The editor’s job is to compile the magazine; proof read, remind regular contributors about deadlines for contributions and send it off to the printers.
The magazine template is easy to use (currently based on Microsoft Publisher). There is a dedicated laptop available with the programme on it.
We know that everyone is very busy these days but we are hoping that there are a few people out there with a few hours to spare who would be willing to help. The current editor is very happy to brief anyone who is interested.
Many of us choose to live in Ogwell because we enjoy a rural village life. The magazine is part of that and if we lose it another part of that way of life will disappear, but it also serves to inform our whole Parish bringing all its residents closer together as part of the same community as it continues to evolve and helps to strengthen those bonds. It is also a great way to introduce people who have recently moved to all the great things going on in our lovely village.
If you think you can help contact Sam Simmons on firstname.lastname@example.org or Stella Llewellyn on email@example.com
With many thanks in advance.
The next Parish Council Meeting is going to be held at Canada Hill School on Monday 13th February at 7.00 pm.
The full agenda will be displayed nearer the time but one major item to be discussed will be the outline planning application for 6 new houses on land at Canada Hill. More information may be found on Teignbridge District Council’s website - application reference 16/03382. Comments from individuals may be submitted online to Teignbridge by 9th February.
Also expected to be discussed is the final draft of the Ogwell Neighbourhood Plan, which if approved by the District Council will be put to a local referendum later this year.
Parishioners are welcome to attend and observe local democracy in action.
MOBILE PHONE MAST – for those who are not already aware, Vodafone’s application to build a 15 metre mobile phone mast in the old village just outside the Conservation Area has been refused by Teignbridge District Council.
