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 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.

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.
