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.

Subject: Local Beekeepers - Look out!

Any local beekeepers be on your guard. For the second time this winter our beehives have been violently attacked and the hive sections scattered onto the ground. We hope we have not lost the queens, but only time will tell. Someone is either trying to steal colonies (without success!) or merely trying to cause damage. The police have been informed. Please share any information you may discover. Just remember, without bees humans cannot live and feed.

From Emma Marshall on 21st January 2016:

Subject: Easter Egg Hunt.

Just to let you know that the Parish Council will be holding an Easter Egg Hunt on 19th March. From 10.30 -1pm. It will be held on the Millenium Green.
All welcome!
We will be having an Easter Bomnet competition which local businessess in Landkey can sponsor if they so wish. The competition will be open to all children of Landkey and will be judged by Julie Whitton.
We have also invited all of the voluntary groups and organisations of Landkey to have a stall to explain and show what they actually do, should anyone like to get involved.
The Parish Council will be there too with a stall to try and get some interest in a group that we hope to form. We think Landkey needs a good old tidy up....but we need help to do this.
So please do come along, enjoy a cuppa and a slice of cake.
And kids go crazy with your easter bonnet designs!!!!!
If any businessess would like to get involved please get in touch with Emma Marshall. 07400522051

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.
