YOUR article on the back page of the edition of August 28, quoted Penny Mills of the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England.
I WOULD like to tell your readers about a fun children’s charity event which I am supporting again this October.
I AM writing in response to the front page article in last week’s editions of the Times about the proposed wind turbine in the rural village of Stowford.
I AM writing to encourage local residents to contribute to an important national review of choice in end of life care.
WITH reference to the new housing development in Tavistock, I may be mistaken, but I thought the original plan was for 750 houses in exchange for a complete rail connection to Bere Alston? Now it appears that the builders are not going to contribute even half the estimated cost without any guarantee that Devon County Council will stump up the rest! It seems that while Okehampton is leading the way for a full reinstatement from Plymouth to Exeter and has had support from other towns like Launceston, Holsworthy and even Bude, there is a noticeable lack of interest from Tavistock.
I HAVE just returned from a glorious walk on Dartmoor in good weather, which meant we could see for miles around.
ON Friday, August 22, the Sticklepath and Okehampton Conservation Group spent the day helping to clear around Gidleigh Tor.
HOW pleasing to see a couple of pages devoted to the Dartmoor Folk Festival in last week’s paper.
Something to sell?
