ANOTHER year has gone by and in the past year lots of dogs and cats have been rehomed from Wingletang and have found their forever home.

ON behalf of Yelverton and District Friends Group of Children’s Hospice South West I would like to thank Rob Fitzsimmons and staff of Bidders for inviting us to hold a collection at Yelverton forecourt on December 22/24.
AFTER a good response to the feature in the Times regarding the 50th Anniversary of the destruction of Walkham Viaduct, I write again to request more help.

THIS New Year we are asking readers to make a resolution to be more fun!

I FIRMLY believe that Devon County Council has lost the plot! I refer to their proposal (Times, December 11) that we should all fund our own winter road grit.
THANK you to all my friends for the unexpected cake, cheque and gifts presented to me on December 18 from traders and the Tavistock branch of the National Market Traders’ Federation on my retirement from my stall in the Pannier Market.
WHAT an amazing town we live in! On Wednesday, December 17, Okehampton United Charity and Okehampton Educational Foundation held an open evening in the Pavilion to celebrate the achievements of many local groups and individuals.
DUE to an editing oversight, the report of ‘Carols for the Community’, published in the December 18 edition of the Times, failed to mention Mr Geoffrey Cox MP, who also took part.
