The mazzard blossom this year lasted from St George's Day (23rd April) until well into May and provided a scenic view on the Millennium Green. The fruit has now set and will ripen in the next few weeks.

Points of View

Comments from Landkey residents on matters of relevance to the village are shown here. If you have a matter that you would like to comment on, please feel free to submit it on the "Your Point of View" page.

From Charles Waldron on 13th July 2017:

A meeting was held in the village hall on 11th July 2017 by North Devon Council's Recyclemore team, led by Ricky McCormack, Head of Operational Services.

The aim of the meeting was to review matters arising since the implementation, on 5th June 2017, of a trial 3-weekly black bin collection and enhanced recycled-goods collection scheme.

Several Landkey residents came along and their comments were generally good, with no-one expressing concern that they had insufficient capacity in their black bins to last them for the longer collection period.

This was borne out by the Council's own experience, Ricky explained, with less black-bin rubbish being collected in all of the trial areas, including Landkey, while more recyclable items and food waste were being put out for collection.

Compostable food-caddy liners and whether the Council should provide households with them free of charge was a matter for lengthy discussion. However, the Council's policy on this matter is that, while it is desirable, for hygiene reasons, for kerbside caddies to be lined or for food to first be put in degradable bags, it is not a requirement to do so and food will still be collected as long as it is presented at the kerbside in the caddy. The Council recognised that this is a matter for further discussion, though.

The Council is keen to consult residents again before the end of the trial period and it is likely that another consultation will be held later this year.

From Charles Waldron on 29th May 2017:

St Paul's Church would like to thank all of those who gave to Christian Aid during the week of 14th-20th May 2017.

A total of over £380 was given by residents of Landkey 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 Ian Morrison on 19th February 2017:
hi. I run a local business in landkey and I'm sure that there are others like me that could possibly benefit from a small village market. Maybe just 2-4 times a month. Locals could have the chance of buying fresh produce and locally made items instead of having to go into Barnstaple, fight with the traffic and pay for parking when everything they need is on their doorstep. Thank you for your time.
Richard Prowse (Parish Councillor) sent this reply on 21st February 2017:
An interesting suggestion from Ian. There are some villages who from time to time hold a Farmers market. Are there others in the area who would be interested? Perhaps if the idea was also discussed through the Facebook page it may generate some discussion.
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.
