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 1st June 2016:

On behalf of St Paul's Church, whose collectors called on many homes in Landkey during the week of 15th-21st May 2016, I would like to thank all of those who gave so generously to Christian Aid.

A total of over £638 was raised and, in accordance with Christian Aid's policy, 84% of this will go directly to helping lift some of the world's poorest out of poverty.

From emma marshall on 10th May 2016:
I wanted to let anyone that is interested to know that we will be having a meet up on Thursday 12 May from 6pm onwards. This is to dig up the weeds and overgrown shrubs from the point at Blakeshill Road where it meets Tanner and Mill Road. The guides have come forward and will be sponsoring a patch and designing something lovely to coincide with the Queens 90th Birthday celebrations. So the more the merrier. I am trying to get hold of a truck or something to hold all the rubbish but it may be that we use our wheely bins??? Can anyone help? Hope to see some friendly eager faces.
From Louise Dyke on 30th September 2015:
I would like to raise your attention to the cancellation of the school bus from Landkey to Park school. The alternative route through venn is in my mind dangerous and ludicrous nice for the 2 employees to walk the route on a clear sunny morning, what happens when its dark raining or icy? My husband and I are both attending the appeal in Exeter on Monday 12th October and have the written backing of our Mp via email and would like to offer any parents a lift if they cant attend due to transport problems.
Emma Marshall (Councillor) sent this reply on 4th October 2015:
Thank you for your much needed interest in this ridiculous situation.
I am myself a parent of a Park School child. I will be attending the appeal myself along with Richard Edgell County Councillor and the Headteacher of Landkey Primary School Kate Fairbrother.
We have a lot of support from parents but could still better our case if we had more, so if you know anyone then please forward on the email for Anthony Mordaunt the Transport Officer for appeals. anthony.mordaunt@devon.gov.uk.
Let's hope that common sense will prevail.
From colin Antell on 14th August 2015:
After e.mailing you about a month ago about the road hedge in Tanners Road, i see nothing has been done. Why is this not done? as all the other by-roads out of Landkey have been trimmed, so why not the playing field hedge?
From Elizabeth Antell on 28th July 2015:
still nothing being done about problems, just a road sweeper up and down when there is nothing to sweep until the hedges and gardens are cut back
