Tree Surgery pending

Parish Council has been advised by both Torridge District Council and Church agents, Phillips Smith and Dunn, that for long-term safety reasons tree surgeons will be taking the weight out of the trees at the top end of/entrance to the village within the next 5 weeks.
As the trees overhang the highway, there will be some traffic restrictions and it is hoped that all road users will respect these.

18 months on

A number in the community will remember the frantic fund-raising exercise to purchase and install a bespoke light to enable the Air Ambulance Night-Flying programme. On a cold night in December 2016 a few of us crazy folk stood in the open air and toasted the newly-erected light, which at the time was on what could have been mistaken for a piece of waste land.
No more. Thanks to a few volunteer bodies from this community (same few, again)- and it has to be said that a couple of these bodies went above and beyond the call of community duty – we now have a fully-fledged fenced amenities field which can be enjoyed by people of all ages. There is enough land to host a football or cricket team, but why not hockey too, or another “field sport”? A little bird tells me that the Parish Council are to fund a couple of football nets so that the youngsters (or oldies, let’s not be ageist) can enjoy a good kick about.
The first formal use of the field (at time of going to press) will be the annual Buckland Brewer fete on July 14th. Don’t worry about the Air Ambulance – firstly the priority for this facility is at night (hence Night Flying) and they can land during the day in the playing field at the top of the village, but in addition the central Air Ambulance control room will be notified of the field being in use, and there will be marshals at the fete to enable a safe landing if required.
See “Notice Board” for a few pics of the team and finished product.
