Act of Vandalism

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. Poppy Rooke was crowned as this years May Queen with Tia Lewis as her Crowner and Matthew Lawton and Billy Mitchell as Heralds. Attendants were Holly Chanell, Isabella Maslanek, Kacey Ashton, Katie Maxam, Cadee Willoughby, Matilda Vallely, Isabel Tucker and Lola Barber.  The theme this year was a "Celebration of Nursing", depicted by nurses caring for soldiers during the Crimean War, I'm sure you will agree the children all look stunning.

Mayor's chosen Charities

My chosen two charities this year are the North Devon Hospice and the Torrington Army Cadets.

I have supported the North Devon Hospice for several years fundraising.  Two years ago I lost a good friend and workmate who received excellent care at the hospice, but sadly passed away.  I have chosen the North Devon Hospice as one of my charities in memory of this friend and for all they do in our local community. 

During a visit I made to the Army Cadet Force a few months ago I was impressed at the range of activities the youngsters get involved in and the commitment of all of the adult helpers who freely give their time to developing the youngsters. The Cadets also do an enormous amount of work in our community throughout the year and it is for these reasons that I wanted to give my support to this organisation.
