Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, 16th May

Last week’s Annual Parish Meetings took place last week on Wednesday May 9th. There were two meetings, one to recap over the last year and another to elect the officals for the next year. Attendance in the hall was very disapointing to say the least, with empty chairs in the hall. A lot of the village organisations didn’t give a report and didn’t attend. This is a village organisation and support or views from the population really would be good!! People are always giving opinions about the council but it seems that doesn’t translate to attending meetings or giving information, very sad really when the councillors really work hard to get things done to benefit the community. Moan Over!! Councillor Rufus Gilbert gave his report and announced he wasn’t standing again as a County Councillor as he wishes to retire. Rufus has always been very helpful to this community and others in the area, long serving and totally dedicated to his task, a hard act to follow, he will be with us for this year.                          

Parish Chair Ros Brusson and Vice Chair David Davis Berry were returned as officers for the next year. Chair Ros read out reports that were submitted and there were extensive discussions about the parish assets, finances, and insurances.  Thanks were given to  Clerk Amy, for her work during the last year. Rev Matt Rowland gave a report from the church and Mission Community. Climate change was discussed and a number of workshops are due to take place during the year organised by South Devon Climate Workshops.    The next Parish Council meeting will take place on Thursday June 6th at 7.30pm in the village hall.                                                                                                                                           

St Andrews will have a Sunday Worship service this Sunday at the usual time of 11am. The service will be led by Reader Gil Snook, all are welcome to attend and there will be refreshments after the service.
