Parish Council Online Meeting

Shillingford Parish Council held its first online meeting on Monday 4th May 2020 at 3:30pm.  The Councillors and the Clerk held a practice meeting the week before, as this was new territory for everyone!  All Parish Councillors managed to get online to attend the meeting and we welcomed five members of the public along as well.  It was considered a great success.


The Parish Council had received a planning application for an agricultural building and hardstanding at land off Shillingford Lane.  After hearing from the applicant, the Parish Council decided to support the application.

Country News

Manstree Vinyard run by the Boyces brothers have made a very generous donation of flowers to beautify the village signs.  They will provide 6 x 18" planters to put by the side of the village signs, two pots at the Shillingford St George sign by South View Farm, two pots by the Shillingford Abbot sign near Pengellys Farm track and one each by the two village signs in the dip by Barton Cottage.  In the summer they propose to use a mix of taller cottage garden style plants which will be bright but harmonise with the countryside surroundings; in the winter they will use a mix of wallflowers, violas, primulas and spring flowering bulbs.  The brothers will water the pots every day and all free of charge, just to show their appreciation of living in such a beautiful part of Devon.

Village Green

The Parish Council are aware that residents have been asking if the grass on the village green could be cut.  As the Parish Council are not responsible for the village green and the trustees refuse to allow us to cut the grass, we are not in a position to cut it.

Village hall

The Village Hall diary is now available online and we're able to take bookings by email.
