News Update - 1st May 2016

On Saturday May 21st and Sunday May 22nd we are holding a Lakes and Woodland Walks event at Wolf Valley, situated between Rexon Cross and Broadwood Village, entrance by Broadwood Bridge. The event takes place at 2pm to 6pm on both days. Car parking (weather permitting) will be in the field and teas will be served in the marquee overlooking the lakes. This event is suitable for all ages as we have short walks or long walks of up to two miles, however if you wish to just have tea and admire the view we don’t mind. Hoping for warm weather when ice creams will be served in the Beech clearing!

Children under 16 to be accompanied by an adult at all times and dogs to be kept on leads. If wet and windy weather is predicted on both days we may have to cancel this event, so keep an eye on the forecast and our web site.

The Garden Club is holding its annual Plant Sale on Monday 9th May at Lower Cross Farm, Crossgreen at 6pm As well as various plants brought by members for sale there will be a raffle. Everyone very welcome.

John has been up up and away on a balloon ride a couple of weeks ago and as it was a lovely clear morning at 7am the balloon went over a mile high and above Roadford, Lundy Island could be seen in one direction and Plymouth Sound in the other. Exeter was also visible and Bodmin moor, which reminds us of the old saying “It’s not that far as the crow flies” Whilst enjoying the view he took some photos and a few are on the web site, they have been watermarked to stop them being downloaded. However if you would like any copies emailed to you, a donation to the Community Hub Project would be gratefully received.

If you would like any further information on any of these events, give me a ring. Anne 01566 784295

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.
