May 25th Craft Fair & Coffee Morning
This was the Hub’s fund raising event for the year, with all profits going to Exeter Leukaemia Fund.
With lovely sunny weather the morning got off to an early start with stall holders arriving from 8.30am. A small marquee had been erected which gave extra space for our craft stalls and what an excellent selection of local products on display and for sale. Coffee was served from 10am and from 12 noon a selection of four homemade soups or bacon rolls were on offer for lunch. We were delighted at the close at 2pm to tot up the money taken and find we had made a profit of £450 which has been forwarded to ELF. We have received a letter of thanks from them. Many thanks to all who helped, stall holders and all who attended.
The AGM of the Parish council was held on 29th May at the Community Hub, when the speaker was Councillor Roger Croad a member of Devon County Council Cabinet who gave a very interesting talk on climate change and the steps DCC was taking to meet the targets. Councillor Dean James was re-elected as chairman with Councillor John Worden as vice chairman. The council has two vacancies at the moment due to two councillors wishing to stand down. If anyone would like to put their name forward please contact the secretary, Rachel Stratton. Councillor James congratulated Councillor Pete Watson and Councillor Phillip Hackett on their recent election as district councillors for our ward.
