PARISH QUESTIONNAIRE & HOUSING NEED SURVEY


You should have received a bright yellow envelope through your letterbox which contains two separate questionnaires, a covering letter and 2 prepaid envelopes - a green one, and a blue one. The Parish Council would ask all parishioners to spare a few minutes to complete these forms as fully as possible and to return them to the Council by the 30th October so that the Council can use the information provided to help plan for the future of the parish. The Council wants to listen to your views; this is an ideal opportunity to tell the Council what you want for your parish. The higher the response rate, the more accurate the data analysis will be and thus the better informed the Council will be afterwards.

All Saints Village Hall News:

9th July 2017


WHAT A SHAME


After an up-beat report upon the activities of our Village Hall last month, what a shame to now report that two items, both with Health and Safety implications, have gone missing.


Firstly, the First Aid kit behind the bar has been removed.


Secondly, to replace an old unstable step ladder, the Hall recently purchased, at some expense, an aluminium ladder meeting modern standards of safety. These too have been removed.


If anyone has any information regarding their whereabouts, please contact Clive Bareham (01460 221088) as the the Hall would be very grateful for their safe return.

All Saints Parish Councillors are delighted to announce that the parish is now the owner of a new Defibrillator, situated at the Village Hall. This equipment is designed to provide emergency resuscitation to anyone in need. The Clerk, Paul Hayward, will be arranging training for this equipment over the coming months but it must be pointed out that the AED (automated external defibrillator) is designed to be used even by someone with NO medical or First Aid training.

Signs have been displayed around the parish marking its location.

EDDC  ‘Pick It Up’  campaign








 click here for larger poster



The  EDDC’s ‘Pick It Up’ campaign is a reminder about the responsibility for cleaning up dog fouling, that it is ultimately down to the owner or handler of the dog.

 

Witnesses: Another helpful matter is for any witnesses who see dog fouling and the owners not picking up to provide us with the following:

 

Date

Time

Full description of the dog

Male or Female owner

Exact Location of fouling

 

If there is a regular pattern for the dog walker, for example they walk their dog at around 08:30hrs each day, all this information will be useful so that we can target these people at specific times and create a window of opportunity to catch them.

 

If you wish to report any incidents please contact our Customer Service Centre on 01395 571517 and a call can be logged.  This will be referred to the Environmental Health Dept and dealt with by an officer.

DITCHES AND DRAINS

From: All Saints Parish Council   To:  All parishioners

It has been widely reported that Devon County Council will need to make yet further Budget cuts of around £110,000,000 to services over the next few years.  A very large proportion of this sum will be borne by the Highways Department.

In consequence, the Parish Council expects that, besides a great reduction in road maintenance, there will be a loss, at the very least, of many hours of the lengths-mans’ allocated time.

The Parish Council is also endeavouring to ‘balance the budget’ without a big increase to the Precept. Therefore, we request farmers and others in this Parish whose land runs along any public highway to make sure please that all ditches and drains are kept clear, especially after hedge-trimming and other works.

Please help to keep our Parish beautiful and most importantly safe.
