Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, 3rd November

The Arts Trail event in the South Hams has been great fun, but as with all good things, it has now come to an end. One lovely story  has to come to light though, Claire Williams welcomed our pre-school children to her Art Space Gallery at Glebelands. Claire used to work at the pre-school until she followed her dream of becoming an art student and ultimately a professional artist. The children with their carers had a lovely time creating their own works of art, which in turn were displayed throughout the art trail experience – well done to our young budding artists!

Here we go again! The perennial problem of dog mess has raised its ugly head again, this time with the Play Park at Icy Park being the victim of careless dog owners. The play park is bound by the same rules as the main play park and that means that no dogs are allowed where there are children’s play equipment! There are clear notices displaying this fact, please read them and control your dog. Reminder – there is a hefty fine for this offence!.
