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 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
From Elizabeth Antell on 20th July 2015:

as a resident of Tanners Road, could I raise two points of concern. The first is the overgrown playing field hedge, which every year is allowed to grow right into the road, making it difficult for drivers and pedestrians, especially when cars are parked in the road. Also the "gardens" at the end of tanners road have grown so high its impossible to see any coming traffic. Would like it sorted please!
From Ben Totterdell on 2nd June 2015:
Outline Planning fro Community Building.

I am very supportive of the need for a high class community building for Landkey, which is long overdue, and appreciate the difficulties faced in trying to find a suitable site and the efforts made by the Parish Council in doing so. However the proposed scheme does seem to be far from ideal and it would be such a shame to severely impact such a wonderful existing community facility as the Millennium Green in order to create a new one. There are many issues with the current proposal that raise concerns - including limited and unsuitable access, loss of rare safe, open green space and drainage issues. I appreciate that this is only an outline application but would like reassurance that other options are also being explored.

This is an open reply to Councillor Emma Marshall’s comments of April 28th.

Hello Emma

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately, I am not able to fully accept it because some of the content does not appear to fit the facts.

You say that “The Parish Council supports and shares the objectives and benefits that the Millennium Green provides and would strive to preserve them as best as possible”. Sorry Emma, but no-one looking at this application, with its plans, can seriously believe that: the developments applied for would be utterly destructive to those objectives, to the intention of the Village Plan and the benefits now enjoyed by all. The Green itself and the area owned by the Parish Council form one consistent whole, green, often quiet place, a valuable breathing space: this will not be the case if we allow this plan to proceed.

As far as ‘a series of consultation meetings’ you mention are concerned, if this nonsense reaches that stage it will be too late. When the thief has entered while you were out, it is too late to say “We didn’t want this stolen” or “We didn’t mean you to take that”! Far better to keep the thief out.

Finally, I believe that if the right person were approached properly by the Parish Council (they know who I mean) then the right site could be made freely available. The right approach will often bring the best results.

Landkey People, I know that our representatives usually mean well, but in this case a huge mistake will be made if we do not put a stop to it. Please write or email your objections now to the Planning Office of the District Council: let’s tell the applicants to think again please. Thank you.
