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 5th January 2015:Subject: Listing of Landkey Businesses
The Parish Council wishes to provide a page on this website for a listing of businesses based in Landkey. It is hoped that this initiative will help to promote those businesses who trade in our village. If you own or run a Landkey-based business and would like to list it on this website, please provide the name of your business, a short description of what you do and contact details. This information should be sent to Charles Waldron, the website's designer, at cerwaldron@gmail.com. There is no charge for this service (at least for the first 12 months).
From Charles Waldron on 20th November 2014:Subject: Acland Memorial - Update
Further to my blog of 14th November, I can now report that St Paul's Church has achieved the target sum of £18000 + VAT required to restore the Acland Memorial. It is anticipated that work will begin in late January 2015 and will take an estimated two months to complete.
From Charles Waldron on 14th November 2014:Subject: Acland Memorial Restoration
St Paul's Church is raising funds to restore the Acland Memorial which has fallen into a state of disrepair. The Memorial is of particular significance as it is associated with the distinguished Acland family whose roots can be traced to Acland Barton on the outskirts of Landkey as far back as 1155.

The Memorial is located in the Lady Chapel of the church and features effigies of Sir Arthur and Lady Elynor Acland, the dates of whose deaths are recorded as being 1610 and 1645, respectively.

A sum of £18000 is needed to carry out the restoration, £15000 of which has already been raised or pledged. If anyone would like to offer additional assistance with this project, please contact St Paul's at landkeychurch@btinternet.com.
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!
