Torridge District Council has recently provided two picnic tables for users of the Calf Street Play Area.  Last Tuesday, the Town Council’s Technician found one of the benches vandalised as per attached photo.  Torridge District Council has confirmed that they will be removing both benches as this is the second act of vandalism on the benches over the past couple of months. If anyone knows anything about who is involved in these acts, please contact the Police as soon as possible on 101.

Once again, the minority has spoiled things for the majority and we all have to pay the cost.

May Fair 2017 - Queen & entourage

May Fair day 2017 was another great success with beautiful weather and large crowds enjoying the celebrations.
