No election was required for the Parish Council as only eight of the ten member places were applied for. Chris Durston and Linda Banbury decided not stand for another term.

Eight ladies associated with the Hub came to an all-day course on Food Hygiene taking the exam at the end under exam conditions! A notice was put on the door stating there was no admittance whilst the exam was in progress, a first for the Hub to be used in this way, another first will be on Thursday 2nd May when the Hub is used as a polling station. Certainly making history at the Hub or perhaps making use of an extremely useful meeting place.
This is the Hub’s fund raising event for the year, with all profits going to Exeter Leukaemia Fund. Starting with the usual coffee morning at 10am there will be a Craft Fair in the Hub with coffee served in the marquee, after 12 noon light lunches will be served with homemade soup and Bacon baps on the menu. This is made possible because of the ladies who were willing to take the food hygiene course which is needed for hot food to be served at the Hub. We have some lovely Craft stalls attending so do please make a note in your diary to attend this event.
St Nicholas Church
We hear from the Church warden, that having completed the parish profiles a decision should be made in June as to whom the new priest will be at St Nicholas as well as the rest of the benefice.
The annual general meeting was held at the April meeting with a representative from the County in attendance. The present committee were proposed and seconded to continue and cups were presented to the members gaining the most points over the year. A very interesting talk on hair styling and scarf tying concluded the evening.Find out more about Broadwoodwidger Womens Institute...
The April meeting was a presentation on Bude Canal by two members of the Bude Canal and Harbour Society, some lovely slides were shown on a very interesting subject. There is no May meeting as a restricted visit to Sydenham House has been arranged for this month with members names pulled out of a hat to attend.Find out more about Broadwoodwidger Local History Group...
