The Longdown WI are hosting an evening talk about the Jurassic Coast by Chris Woodward. The meeting is open to all with ladies and gentlemen are invited.
Wed 5th June 2019, 7:30pm at the Village Hall.
The coffee morning held on Saturday 13th April at the village hall in aid of Hospiscare was a resounding success raising a total amount of £583.15.
Amongst the bacon baps, numerous cakes, tea & coffee consumed, a draw was held along with guess the number of Easter Eggs in the jar, there were 118 if you are interested (how did your guess fair?), the winner was Rose Hammett from Christow who guessed 119 ! (118 that’s a lot of Easter Eggs to eat -good luck).
Many thanks to all those who donated cakes, bacon, other supplies, Easter Eggs & draw prizes & for you all for supporting the coffee morning on the day to make this inaugural event a success.
Whilst enjoying our coffee we had the pleasure of meeting Bethany who was selling jewellery to raise money for a charity trip to Ecuador in 2020 with Camps International.
The trip will be for a month helping local communities in Ecuador. Bethany and her school friends from Isca Academy will be meeting and helping children in the area, working on building projects and also going to areas where de-forestation has taken place. They will be planting new trees in those areas. They also get to have some time learning to scuba dive.. so it’s not all work!
Bethany has to raise the money for the trip herself and will be holding a few events to help raise this. So keep an eye out for her as she would appreciate your support.
We hope to see you all (and Bethany) to next year’s Hospicecare Coffee Morning which will be on the 25h April 2020.
Our Christmas Big Breakfast was a tremendous success last year and enjoyed by all.
Once again a hearty breakfast for only £5, families welcome and a reduction for children. With all money raised donated to local charities.
Sat 27th April 2019, 10am – 12pm at the Village Hall.
On the afternoon of Sunday 14th April 2019, in the field behind the houses to the right as you drive towards the pub coming from the Exeter direction, two dogs were seen worrying livestock (herd of ewes) and the attack was so severe that 10 ewes have died as a result. The attack went on for over an hour and this was witnessed by several local residents.
Police are very keen to speak with any witnesses of the incident and ask that they call 101 or email email@example.com quoting CR/32795/19 passing their details and what they are able to tell Police.
Does anyone know of the owner of these dogs? One dog is described as all black which is smooth coated but a long haired tail. It was a medium to large sized and most likely to be a collie cross or similar. The other dog was a large terrier type dog with a white body. It had a long fluffy tail but its face was so covered in blood, that any markings were unclear. The dogs would have returned home clearly exhausted and most likely covered in blood from the attack.
Police need to identify the owner of these dogs and we ask that any information that does identify that person will be treated in confidence.
