On October 10th a Public Meeting was held at the Church Room to discuss the possibility of the Church room being leased to the Community Group which was set up last year to look into the possibility of a small community hub in the village. Preb. Rev.Tim Deacon and Mr Arthur Hannaford were present to represent the Church and a good attendance from the Parish was present especially as the Friday evening seemed to clash with quite a few other events.

Mr John Worden gave a presentation of what the affordable options were, a question and answer session then followed, finishing with every one present being asked for their opinion. Overall the feeling of the meeting was positive to further the idea of the Community room. Several people present offered to join the committee to further this idea.

If anyone in the Parish was unable to attend the meeting and would like further information or have any views on the subject for or against, please contact Mr J Worden 01566 784295 or leave a message on this site through the council section.

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.
