CALL TO ACTION!

We badly need a team of local volunteers to help us cut and strim the grass at the top of Woodlands/Glebelands, behind the bus stop and the verge next to the Church wall. Our current contractor has let us down badly and left the areas in a complete mess! We have looked at other contractors but they're all pretty expensive.


If we do it between ourselves it will keep our costs down. These costs are passed onto you all through your Council tax so it's in your own financial interest to give us a hand!


It only needs to be a few hours, every few weeks and we can keep our village looking neat and tidy!
Please come along and show your support if you can. Bring your mowers and strimmers. Someone will be there to take all the grass clippings away for us.


I promise every volunteer a cuppa and a bacon sandwich as a Thank you!


NEXT DATE: Saturday 27th May 10.00 to 13.00

Meet by bus stop.


Spread the word!!!
Thanks
Jody

Can you help to rescue Dartmoor ponies? We did!!!

Due to the economic problems being felt in this country and abroad, the sale of horses and ponies has dramatically decreased. For semi-feral herds across the UK this has become a huge problem. Dartmoor relies on its herds of ponies to keep the careful ecological balance. Without the ponies, the moorland would become vastly overgrown, not only preventing the vital income brought by tourists but also greatly damaging the habitats of a number of insects and birds and other animals.
