Overwhelming Support for Neighbourhood Plan

On Thursday 15th February over 500 local residents voted in the local referendum, equating to a turnout of 25%. Given factors such as time of year,half term etc, this is a significant number, thank you for taking the time and effort to register your opinion in this way.

91% of those voting supported the adoption of the Plan, a strong endorsement of the content that has resulted from 3 years of consultation with parishioners and local groups.

Many thanks to all involved, particularly Michael Simmons as Chair of the Steering Group guiding us through this lengthy process, Peter Farrell as its tireless Secretary and to the rest of the hard working Steering Group. Thanks also to  Peter Sandover who has provided much needed advice over the last couple of years and David Kiernan who has spearheaded  invaluable support from Teignbridge District Council.

The Parish Council and others will now be using the Plan to help develop and implement priorities and ensure that local planning  applications take proper account of our Plan, so heavily supported by those who live in the Parish.

Again,many thanks to all.

Gareth will be Licenced at a special service at 7pm on 12th June at St. Paul’s Church, Newton Abbot. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and welcome Gareth and his family. We also welcome Dr Joe Lannon and family who move into the village in June. Joe will be ordained as a Curate in September to serve the benefice and the family will be living in St, Bartholomew’s Close.
Finally a ‘Save the Date’ for you – the Ogwell Duck Race will take place at Holbeam Mill on Saturday 16th September. A fun family afternoon and a sight to behold seeing 500 rubber ducks floating down the River Lemon to Chercombe Bridge!

Parish Magazine Saved!

I am delighted that we now welcome  a new editorial team of Sarah Sutton, Lara and Max Fullalove to the Parish Magazine. They are all local, Sarah is Auntie to Lara and Max and they are taking over as editors making it a truly family affair, we hope you enjoy their first issue. We thank them for stepping in and look forward to all their ideas and input over the coming months.
For articles please use the usual email address which has now passed to the new team.
I would like to extend thanks to Amy Keene, our outgoing editor for all her hard work over the past year keeping the magazine going. We hope Amy will continue to be a contributor. The magazine is both a vital source of income for St. Bartholomew’s Church, but more importantly an essential community asset and we truly appreciate the time put in by the whole team of Magazine volunteers, from editorial, subscriptions, advertising, and distribution.
