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 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.

From emma marshall on 23rd August 2013:
I hope some of you can make it to the strawberry fayre,

From emma marshall on 7th July 2013:
Hope some of you can make it to the Parish Council meeting on weds eve. We will be discussing the 10k run and festival. If there is anyone that can help out on the day with marshals or volunteering or if you would like to hold a stall then please come down. It is 14th September on the Landkey playing fields.
