Teignbridge Community Service Volunteers
Mandy Hendley is the coordinator for The Friends of Ide Lane Surgery. Since Lockdown, Mandy has worked much harder than ever from her home. No longer organising drivers to take patients to the surgery or hospital because that was no longer possible in view of the restrictions but now, in conjunction with other organisers she organised many more volunteers to help with food and pescription delivery. She also organised volunteers to contact lonely people on a regular basis so that those on their own and vulnerable would feel less isolated. Mandy was nominated for recognition of her work and won A Cream Tea for 12 People. Well done Mandy and thank you

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.
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.
The Village Hall diary is now available online and we're able to take bookings by email.
Why not try us for your wedding party, birthday party, class or meeting?
Barratt Homes are proposing to develop a site at the Alphington end of Waybrook Lane. The planning proposals can be found here. Further information is available from the Parish Clerk
