Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow 22nd June

It’s nearly Swoosh time again and the annual event will this year take place on Satrurday July 8th. The Bantham Swoosh is organised by the charity Level Water thorugh it’s events arm, Swim Collective. All the profits raised will go towards providing swimmimg lessons for children with disabilities, The parking for the event will be in the old cricket field off the A379 and at Bantham itself. Please be careful if approaching this area for obvious reasons of traffic on the move. The event pretty much will take all of that Saturday with swimmers arriving from 7am-8.30am, the coaches will be arriving from Bantham from 8.15am-10.00am and after the event traffic will leave between 13.30pm-16.00! The swimmers will start their swim from 10.45am and the last swimmers will leave at approximately 11.15am. All in all this will be a very busy day for the roads surrounding this event and please take great care around the bridge and cricket field area’s, traffic will be horrrendous especially due to the event kicking off later due to tide times.  

Our tractor boys have done such a great job of raising money for the Devon Air Ambulance

The boys have been traveling all over the South West reigon and have raised a wonderful £10,000 for the charity. The boys, led by retired farmer and agricultural engineer Mr John Foale, have made journeys from A.G to Cornwall for the county show last year, and numerous smaller trips from here to Dartmoor, Okehampton and a lot of other places too. Where will they travel to next? Well done to them all. Also in our picture is Richard, one of the much valued pilots for D.A.A.T.
