Play Area Behind The Village Hall.
Due to safety concerns the Parish Council has with regret had to close the play area, posters have been put at the site and in the shop informing residents and visitors of this. The Council is currently considering how to proceed regarding future provision of a play area in the village.
Dog Waste Bins.
North Devon Council have now taken over the emptying of the dog waste bins and are charging the Parish Council for the works.
Air Ambulance Landing Lights.
The Parish Council jointly with Devon Air Ambulance have installed lighting on the playing field behind the village hall to enable the air ambulance to land during the hours of darkness. They are now flying until 2 O'Clock in the morning and this is likely to be extended even further. The lights are turned on by mobile telephone signal should a landing be required. Due to the remoteness of the village this could be life saving or in case of a serious incident could be used to take patients to a distant specialist hospital. The funding for this project has come from money given to the air ambulance by the UK Treasury from the LIBOR Bank Fines, council grants from Councillor Richard Edgell, Councillor Walter White and a very kind donation from Grenville Buckingham. Just to prove it was money well spent, the site was used in earnest less than two months after being completed and commissioned on the evening of Sunday 17th. March to take a patient to a specialist burns unit.
