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 Jon Williams on 8th March 2015:
Hi, I have heard on the grape vine that Landkey has been approved for a skate/bmx park? Does anyone know anything about this? Is it true and if so where is the proposed site please.
Thanks
Emma Marshall (Councillor) sent this reply on 9th March 2015:
To answer your query regarding the skate park there has been no planning agreed for this. The police community advisor came along to a meeting and suggested that if there were any monies from development within the village, that the Parish Council consider it for a BMX track. This was only a discussion and to our knowledge has not been taken any further, however, the Parish Council do recognise the need for youth facilities for future consideration.

From Ken Snell on 2nd January 2015:
I think the converted shops used to be a co-op
From Deb Kelly on 29th December 2014:
I grew up in Landkey and am interested in its history, particularly the buildings. There was an old shop front along Blakes Hill Road (the property known as Dimora) that has recently been converted to 2 houses, not far from the current post office. Does anyone know what this shop once was?

Ken Snell has posted this comment on the Points of View page in respect of your enquiry: "I think the converted shops used to be a co-op".
From Anita Murch on 15th December 2014:
Sadly the luncheon club has recently had to fold up after many successful years.I feel this might leave older people feeling isolated in their homes.If there was sufficient interest[and offers of help],I would be happy to try and set up a regular date once a month to hold a two hour session to include soup,roll and butter,tea or coffee,chat,and craft ,cards, scrabble,dominoes ,raffle etc.Perhaps an occasional speaker and a trip out once a year.Anyone interested ,can contact me either by email anita_murch@yahoo.co.uk or by phone 01271 831400.Anita Murch.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This is what that the website is here to do, try and solve issues and bring our village together.
If there is anyone out there who feels they could spare a few hours to get involved and carry on a much needed facility within the village then please do get in touch with Anita. I will also add it to the agenda for the next Parish Council meeting. This will be on 7th January at the Old School Centre from 7.30pm.
Sadly, it is all too common for older people to feel isolated when they cannot just get up and go out for a stroll, and need to rely on others to assist them with things that we just take for granted. We need to look after each other.

From Betty Antell on 6th July 2014:
Could something be done about the visibility at the end of Tanners Road, and the South Hayes junction, on to the main road. At the moment its an accident waiting to happen - why not just cut the foilage right back with a strimmer or something similar.
