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 emma marshall on 3rd December 2013:
The residents of Newlands Lodge were visited by 57 pupils from Landkey Primary School on 3rd December. And were treated to some beautiful carols and songs from their christmas play this year. The ladies absolutely loved seeing and hearing the energy from the children. It really felt like christmas. Thankyou to all who helped in bringing the children.
From Charles Waldron on 2nd December 2013:
On behalf of St Paul's Church, I would like to thank the many people who came along to the Christmas Fayre which was held in the village hall on Saturday 30th November. Father Christmas was kept busy giving out presents, tea and mince pies were in great demand and many prizes were won. A very welcome sum of over £1200 was raised for church funds.
From Sami Adams on 28th November 2013:
Well done Glyn and Emma, the lights are now attached and working, bringing welcome light to the centre of the village.
From Sam Adams on 9th November 2013:
Further to recent comments relating to the lighting of Blakeshill Road at night, especially the area between the Goodleigh turn and the The Castle Inn.

The light fittings for this area were attached to the wooden telegraph posts. the posts have been replaced, but not the light fittings. We were assured this operation would be carried out on completion of works to be carried out by Open Reach. These works have now been completed. My question is, who is responsible for completing this operation and when, if we are to avoid a unfortunate incident?
Emma Marshall (Councillor) sent this reply on 11th November 2013:
After making numerous responses to D.C.C. Highways through the Parish Council without success,
the Parish Council at its meeting last Wednesday agreed to write to Western Power distribution and D.C.C.
I can confirm I have also talked to Graham from S.E.Connect who deal with street lighting for Western Power and D.C.C. He has confirmed that there is an issue with the supply of the street lantern type which D.C.C. require. He also confirmed that he is hoping to get some lanterns in later this week and hopes to fit the following week. I also pointed out to Graham the street light next to the shop which his staff came out to fix is still faulty. Graham is calling out to view.I hope this response helps clarify some of your concerns.
Regards.
Glyn Lane.
From Charles Waldron on 1st October 2013:
On behalf of St Paul's Church, I would like to thank all who gave so generously on Gift Day, 28th September 2013. The total raised was £1902 and this sum will go a long way towards enabling the church to meet its costs this year.
