Every Mind Matters

Taking care of your mind as well as your body is really important while staying at home because of coronavirus (COVID-19). You may feel bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also be low, worried or anxious, or concerned about your finances, your health or those close to you. It’s important to remember that it is […]

Food Takeaway and Delivery

The country has been in lockdown for just over a week now and we thought we would summarise those local businesses still serving Longdown. Sadly, The Lamb and Teign House Inn have both now stopped with their takeaway service. The Kings Arms and The Red Lion are only available if you are living in Tedburn […]

If you are not due a food delivery for a few of days, would rather not visit the supermarket or the prospect of another meal cooked from the random ingredients you find in the fridge is unappealing then ordering a […]

Village Hall Closure

Village Hall with curved room from the air

The Longdown Village Hall Management Committee have reluctantly decided to temporarily close the hall due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. A number of activity and social groups as well as the Sports and Social Club have independently suspended their regular and planned events so it seemed prudent to close the hall and reduce the […]
