Our lovely resident Yvonne Knapman is in the throes of knitting headbands for nurses and each one needs two buttons, which our dedicated nurses can use to hook their facemasks over, as during a busy twelve hour shift areas of their faces can become very sore with the elastic. Why are we mentioning this? Well Yvonne needs some buttons to complete her vital work, so can we please search in our pockets, drawers and workboxes to see if there are any spare buttons lurking about, and then please pass them on to Yvonne through the shop. The buttons need to be ¾ of an inch to one inch. Thank you in advance!
There is an initiative being jointly supported by DCC and Devon and Cornwall Police to keep children safe online during the lockdown period. During this extraordinary time young people are potentially spending more time online, and this joint move is to raise awareness of grooming activities that can occur. This menace can affect anyone who uses the internet regardless of their gender, and the Police have collected information to support parents and carers to help spot the signs of online exploitation. There is also advice on who to talk to, and where to get help from the Police website devon-cornwall.police .uk. I have read some of the information and it contains a lot of very solid advice, we have to be so aware these days.
There is a stand with some plants for sale to support the village shop in the shop garden . There’s a nice variety to choose from and you will have a lovely garden whilst raising funds for our community shop. The shop is open and is following social distancing policy, please be patient!
The stone painting competition is still going on and when your stone is painted you can display it outside on your doorstep or why not take a picture and enter it onto the village website/facebook page.
The Rev Rowland is continuing with his online services which can be found at modburyteam.org. and I would like to extend my thanks to the Fish family for erecting the wooden cross on Tree Corner, we may not have been able to have our village parade this year but it was good to see the cross there.
