This image comes from a scan of a calendar page contributed by visitors to Landkey (on 10th August 2017) who had recently purchased a house in South Devon. On exploring their loft, they came across a calendar for 1964 and discovered this scene of St Paul's Church and Landkey Town bridge for July-August of that year. The house below the church, which is visible in the picture, was occupied by Mr and Mrs Mills with their daughters. Mr Mills was the Church Warden for many years and they left Landkey to live in Plymouth. Their house was demolished in 1964. We are grateful to the visitors for letting us have this picture and for Betty Parker for submitting it to be included on the village website.

The dog agility display made a welcome return to Landkey Show in 2017 after an absence in 2016. Despite the best efforts of their owners, the dogs don't always do as expected: here the mother dog can't resist entering the arena to see how her daughter is getting on!

Landkey resident Margaret Perryman has been awarded a certificate of recognition for raising the sum of £2022 by door-to-door collections on behalf of the RNLI between 2003 and 2015. Following unfavourable publicity for door-to-door collections, the RNLI no longer raises funds in this way, but felt that its loyal collectors should be thanked. Margaret contributes to village life in many other ways, including to the church and Landkey organisations such as the Horticultural Society. Image courtesy of Charles Waldron,25th July 2017.

The blossoms on the Millennium Green mazzard trees emerged to provide an attractive display at Easter in 2017. Aware that local people are interested to see the blossom when it arrives in spring, Michael Gee (pictured on the extreme right), who was involved with the planting of the mazzards on the Green in 1999, gave a talk on the history and cultural significance of this once-common fruit. Michael's audience comprised a dozen or so and many were keen to ask questions about how the mazzard was saved from extinction in Landkey. Image courtesy of Charles Waldron,15th April 2017.
