A garland of knitted poppies adorned the war memorial in readiness for Remembrance Sunday, 2019. Numbering 365, one for each day of the year since Remembrance Day last year, they were knitted by village residents Karen Trigger, Sue Ackland, Anita Thorne and Liz Davies. Their work is much appreciated and led to a round of applause at the Act of Remembrance on 10th November. Image courtesy of Charles Waldron 13th November 2019.

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 Harry Butterworth on 27th April 2015:
Firstly, my compliments on such an excellent web site.
Reading your letters about traffic problems I almost felt I was looking at our own village web site (whitchurchonthames.com). When it comes to car parking, Fred has the same right to own a car as Bill and both are entitled to park on the highway regardless of whether either has access to off street parking or not. It is a real problem here, made particularly difficult because if you move the problem from one place it merely turns up somewhere else.
Speeding is also a nightmare. Our police won’t enforce a 20mph speed limit and the cost of speed humps, let alone “pillows” is far outside our Parish Council’s budget. Other villages have radar speed indicators and a couple of visits by a police speed trap does make a difference
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.
Emma Marshall (Councillor) sent this reply on 16th December 2014:
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.
