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.

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.

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.
