The mazzard blossom this year lasted from St George's Day (23rd April) until well into May and provided a scenic view on the Millennium Green. The fruit has now set and will ripen in the next few weeks.

From Charles Waldron on 25th August 2014:

Subject: Church Clock

St Paul’s Church clock has recently had a mechanism fitted which will enable it to keep time correctly. It had long been necessary to regularly adjust the clock as its Victorian-era workings failed to maintain the current time and caused it to chime inaccurately, much to the frustration of nearby residents.

We are grateful for the donations which we received to enable the mechanism to be fitted and are also grateful to Chris James for carrying out this work.

The clock was installed by a local company in 1887 to mark the golden jubilee of Queen Victoria. The original manual winding mechanism was later replaced with an electrical rewinding system but the clock was still unable to keep time reliably.

The device which Chris has now installed is a Seasonal Time Controller which regulates the time according the National Time Signal and which will even adjust itself automatically when the time changes in autumn and spring.

We are pleased to report that the clock now keeps perfect time and chimes accurately as well!

From Charles Waldron on 7th July 2014:

Subject: Local Plan

At the Parish Council Meeting held on 2nd July 2014 the Local Plan, which was issued by the North Devon District Council on 26th June, was discussed.

The proposed Plan, which will run until 2031, will be out for public comment until August 8th. It contains a section specifically on Landkey and this section largely reflects what the Parish Council submitted. In most respects, therefore, the proposed plan is supported by the Parish Council. This is especially important in the light of efforts by Devonshire Homes to develop a large housing site which is deemed to fall outside the Landkey Development Boundary.

Landkey residents are encouraged to visit the Plan's Consultation Portal, which can be accessed by following the link on the right hand side of this page. The section which concerns Landkey is numbered 13.638. Comments on the Plan can be made directly on the web page.

This information has been placed on behalf of Landkey Parish Council.

Subject: Childrens Cross country

It was great to see the Millenium Green being used for the cross country in which different schools took part on 5th March. A great place for Landkey school to host their first of many cross country events.
