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.

From Charles Waldron on 28th December 2015:Subject: Mazzard Planting
A new mazzard sapling has been planted at the top of the Millennium Green in a space that was unoccupied by other trees in the mazzard orchard which was established in 1999. The sapling was sourced by Michael Gee from Eastacott at Goodleigh, and is a variety not represented in the collection on the Green. If you are walking on the Green, feel free to have a look, but please take care not to damage it as it is still very small! A picture taken while the sapling was being planted may be seen in the Events Gallery.
From Charles Waldron on 18th December 2015:Subject: Thank you from St Paul's
Thank you to all who have supported the recent St Paul's Church Christmas events and services. The Fayre on 5th December was attended by many village residents as well as regular churchgoers and the contribution of all was appreciated. Almost £900 was raised for much-needed church funds. The Christmas Tree Festival also attracted much interest with 11 local organisations donating and decorating a tree. Carols by Candlelight is a popular service and was well attended again this year.
From Charles Waldron on 28th November 2015:Subject: Christmas (and other) Events
With Christmas approaching, don't forget that, if you are planning an event to be held in the village, you can advertise it free of charge on this website! Simply go to the "Add Event" page and submit the details of your event. It will then appear on the Events Calendar for others to view.
From Charles Waldron on 21st October 2015:Subject: Points of View, etc.
Landkey Parish Council encourages village residents to make use of the Points of View facility on this website. If there is an issue that concerns village life that you feel needs to be addressed, place it on the "Your Point of View" page and it will be sent to a parish councillor who will reply, if you ask for a response.

It has recently come to light that an intermittent fault might have prevented some Points of View from being submitted. This fault has now been rectified so, if you had tried to send in your Point of View, please accept Charles Waldron's (the web designer's) apology and feel free to use this facility again!

The Parish Council also welcomes the addition of village events to the "Events Calendar". The calendar is shared with St Paul's Church (as church events are also village events) and it would be good to have more events listed from the village in general. If you have an event that you would like to place, feel free to enter it on the "Add Event" page. If you submit events regularly, you might prefer to obtain a login facility as this will enable you to subsequently edit your event/s if required or to add from a stored template to save time. To obtain a login facility, contact Charles at cerwaldron@gmail.com.
From Charles Waldron on 29th September 2015:Subject: Acland Memorial Restoration
Landkey villagers might like to know that the Acland family memorial, which is located in the Lady Chapel at St Paul's Church, has recently been restored.

In 2013, a decision was taken by St Paul's Parochial Church Council to seek funding to make the memorial safe (cracks had appeared in its structure) and then to restore it.

A total of over £18000 was raised from various sources and the restoration work was carried out at the start of 2015.

Among the contributors were members of the modern-day Acland family and 25 of these were present at a service held in St Paul's on Saturday 26th September 2015. It was a very enjoyable event and the family members seemed pleased to have been involved in the project and to have visited the village where there ancestors lived as far back as the year 1155AD.
