News Update - March 2017
COMMUNITY HUB Exciting news the lease has finally been signed between the Church solicitors and the Community Fund Trustees and work has started on the project. You will see by the photos that there is a lot of work to be carried out in tidying up the site. John, Richard and Dean have spent two Saturdays getting to grips with some of the worst. I have attached some photos showing the site before work started and one or two taken since the start. Hopefully we can include some photos each month showing how the work is progressing.

Welcome to Broadwoodwidger
A large rural Parish in the beautiful rolling countryside of West Devon, with glorious views of Dartmoor and nearby Cornwall. Distinctive for its many hidden hamlets and farms that nestle tucked away throughout the parish. Alongside its many rivers, hills and valleys, one of which the River Wolf meanders gently, having been dammed in recent times to provide 750 acres of water stored for the large conurbations of Devon. Many outdoor activities surround the reservoir including wind surfing, boating and fishing whilst providing peaceful rural walks for the whole family to enjoy.
The A30 dual carriageway skirts one end of the parish, giving excellent road links to the South West region as a whole (albeit with a little noise)! The neighbouring parishes of Ashwater, St Giles on the Heath, and Lifton offer a range of services and points of interest for residents and visitors alike. Although the last 30 years has made a telling difference to this parish with the reservoir and the road, it has brought a vibrancy and new way of life for residents new and old in these challenging times. But above all it makes this parish a welcoming, friendly and memory-making destination.
