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.

From Charles Waldron on 6th May 2016:Subject: Village website - contributions welcome!

It is encouraging to discover that this website is visited increasingly often. Since its establishment in 2013, visits have risen steadily from around 500 per month to 1200 in April 2016. Together with the Landkey Village Open Forum Facebook page (the link to which can be found on the left of this page) and the Landkey Newsletter, this website aims to offer Landkey residents access to village information and to share this with others.

Contributions from village residents are welcomed and these can include pictures of local interest (e.g. events), notification of forthcoming events, matters of concern, which can be raised via the Points of View page, as well as news items.

Events and Points of View may be added without the need to log in to the website. If you would like to add new items or upload pictures, feel free to contact me at cerwaldron@gmail.com and I will let you have login information.

This website is provided by Landkey Parish Council, together with Landkey Village Hall.

From Emma Marshall on 7th April 2016:Subject: Tidy Landkey Group.
After the successful Easter Egg hunt we can now set up a date as we have many names put forward to help get this group up and running.
What I need to know is whether people would rather meet at the weekend or weekday. If we could agree on a day at least its a start. Not everyone is going to beable to make every meet up.
I think the best thing to do is to meet up and start off with a litter pick. That way we will be walking around the village and spotting parts that need work.
If there is anyone that didnt put their name forward but would still like to join then please come on the day.
As I work alot of weekends it will be difficult to fit in a saturday. The only one I am free is the 16th April. I suggest that we meet at the Millenium Green and start from there. 10am - 12pm sound ok?
I can sort out grabbers to use and provide the bin liners....it would then be a case of disposing of the rubbish.
Please get in touch with me on 07400522051.
From Charles Waldron on 22nd March 2016:Subject: Easter Egg Hunt
Well done to all the organisers and helpers who enabled the Easter Egg Hunt to be a success on Saturday 19th March 2016! The weather was rather chilly but that didn't prevent many enthusiastic egg hunters from following the clues positioned around the Millennium Green which enabled them to work out an Easter-related phrase and earn their eggs!

Events for Saturday 19th March 2016
10:30 AM - 1:00 PM: Landkey Easter Egg Hunt

Come along to a family fun morning on the Millenium Green. You can enter the Easter Egg Hunt for 50p. You will need to get letters from the clues that will take you all over the green (welly boots may be advised!) When you have all the letters they will make a word associated with Easter then come and collect your prize!!
Also there will be an easter bonnet competition. Free entry. Just go wild with your imagination. There will be 4 age categories 12 and under, 9 and under, 6 and under, 3 and under. Prizes for the best one and wil be judged by Julie Whitton.
There will be hot and cold drinks on sale, as well as cakes, and our wonderful voluntary groups will be showing what they do.
We also hope to enlist new volunteers for a tidy up group in Landkey.
So please come along.

Venue: Millenium Green

From Michael Gee on 11th February 2016:Subject: Landkey Carols
In 1892 a group was established to sing Christmas Carols. Some are well known, particularly amongst Methodists, while others were composed locally. As well as performing in Landkey the carollers, singers with instrumentalists, would tour the district on carts to Bratton Fleming, Loxhore, Bishop’s Tawton, Cobbaton and Swimbridge. There is an account in the book ‘Discovering Landkey’.

The tradition carried on for a century, but with television, double-glazing and other diversions the tradition has died out. Fortunately some of the music survives.

The Carols enabled people to meet together, to sing and play instruments together, and by all accounts of the tours, to have fun together. It also enabled those with the gift of composition to hear their works performed.
With today’s interest in strengthening community life, in trying to preserve ‘local distinctiveness’, in wanting outlets for local creativity, and in having activities that span the generations, could the Landkey Carols be revived in a modern form? Could we have new Landkey carols or music to suit young and old in the modern age?

There will be a meeting in Landkey Village Hall at 7.30pm on Friday, March 11th to explore the idea. Refreshments provided.
