Numbering 365, one for each day of the year since Remembrance Day last year, they were knitted by village residents Karen Trigger, Sue Ackland, Anita Thorne and Liz Davies. Their work is much appreciated and led to a round of applause at the Act of Remembrance on 10th November. Image courtesy of Charles Waldron 13th November 2019.

The St Paul's Nativity play attracted many people into the church on Sunday 23rd December 2018 and, among them, was a large proportion of children. Angela Bellamy was not short, therefore, of actors for the play which she directed without having had a rehearsal. She did a commendable job, though, and was able to use the many willing helpers at her disposal to retell the story of Jesus' birth. In the picture, members of the "cast" gather around Joseph and Mary (centre) for a photocall. The angels are at the back with shepherds and sheep joining in!

The St Paul's Church Carols by Candlelight service, held on 20th December 2018, was enjoyed by many Landkey residents, with most of the pews being filled for the occasion. This blurred image captures, perhaps, some of the magical atmosphere of a carol service, with real candles adding to the feel. Image courtesy of Charles Waldron,22nd December 2018.

The Remembrance service and wreath-laying ceremony on Sunday 11th November 2018 were attended by many, possibly over 100, Landkey residents. The service and ceremony were both led by Chris James, clergy member of St Paul's Church, who was supported by many others associated with St Paul's Church and village organisations. Here, Chris (left) pauses before the Act of Remembrance began just before 11am, exactly 100 years after the signing of the Armistice in France in 1918. He is joined by John Hayes (Standard Bearer for the Burma Star Association), Lieutenant Tom Wilks and Colour Sergeant David Green, both of whom were about to lay wreaths.

The Nativity Play, held at St Paul's Church on 17th December 2017, was enjoyed by the many people who came along for the occasion. A number of children were present and were keen to take part in the retelling of the story of Jesus' birth. Here, the crib scene is shown, having been recreated in the choir area of the church and on which Revd Shaun O'Rourke (left) looks approvingly. The play was led very ably by Angela Bellamy and her efforts were much appreciated. Image courtesy of Charles Waldron,18th December 2017.

At least 80 Landkey residents attended the Act of Remembrance at the war memorial on 12th November 2017 at 11am. Earlier, from 10 am, almost all the seats in the village hall were taken for the Service of Remembrance at which as many as 50 people were present. Here, the 2 minutes' silence at the memorial is observed. Image courtesy of Charles Waldron,12th November 2017.

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!
