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 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?

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.

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.
From Richard Prowse on 15th September 2013:
Well done to everyone who was involved in Saturdays Festival. A brilliant occasion and a great way to get the Community together and lots of money raised. Thanks to N D Road Runners for making the Codden run such a success, but most of all thanks to Emma Marshall for organising it and making it happen! Lets make it even bigger and better next year?
From Richard Halliday on 6th September 2013:
Allotments For Landkey Landkey Parish Council are keen to explore the opportunity to provide a space for allotment gardens in Landkey. While allotments are a much valued resource to any village the viability of providing them depends on:
1.Sufficient demand to support their establishment and on-going use.
2.The availability of suitable land at an affordable cost for allotment holders The Parish council is keen to look at all possible land options for Landkey including:
• Use of any land within the village already in public ownership
• Purchase or long term lease of suitable agricultural land
• Any other new ideas! If you are interested in the possibility of allotments in Landkey, have ideas on where they could be sited, or know of land that could be purchased or leased then please contact the Parish Council or come along to a Parish Council meeting.
From Vicky Bryan on 28th August 2013:
Hi, I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but there are no street lights along the main through road between 12.30am and 5.30am. Along with the side streets. I can understand there not being a lights on the side streets, but the main road is very dark and wonder if there should not be one light every 3 maybe.
I leave for work very early in the morning and have found it quite unnerving. I thought I read that the lights on the main road would be left on when it was first mentioned that the lights would go out.
Emma Marshall (Parish Councillor) sent this reply on 30th August 2013:
I have found out that the Parish Council had asked for Blakeshill Road to be left out but the views weren't listened to. I will bring it up at the next meeting Weds 4th and see if I can give you any more info.

Hope that's ok for you.
