I am dismayed by apparent disregard

I HAVE read with interest the West Devon Borough Council responses to comments raised by the Okehampton Town Council, Okehampton Hamlets and Parish Council and communities of Okehampton to the WDBC Our Plan proposals.

Can you help my boyfriend with his supporters’ club badges collection?

MY boyfriend is a keen follower of football at all levels and as a hobby he collects official supporters’ club badges from every league and non league football clubs.

Have your say!

DURING 2014 West Devon Borough Council strategic planning staff have been preparing a replacement for the existing Local Plan/Core Stategy, which was to have lasted until 2026.

Waiting until 2019 is not an option

REGIONAL investment has been promised in the National Infrastructure Plan announced on December 2, with £38 billion Network Rail delivery programme.

A wonderful event!

WHAT a wonderful event this year’s Edwardian Evening was.

Show support at Christmas

FOR many Forces families, this Christmas will be extra special.

A new school is the only sensible option

CHAGFORD school.

We will do our best to keep the trail open

IF you are one of the many people that use the Granite Way regularly, you will have noticed the work that has been done over the past few months to take the trail back to its original width.

There needs to be wider debate on the rail issue

MAY I point out to MPs Cox and Stride and supporters of the re-opening of the rail line from Exeter through Okehampton and Tavistock that not everyone is in favour.

I still believe a new school is the only option

I THINK it’s  very wrong and slightly suspicious, that a few  ‘angry parents’ have left it  to the eleventh hour to try and derail this ‘golden egg’ opportunity for every one before anyone has seen plans or submissions from developers.

Breathtaking exhibition

WHAT extraordinary talent is being nurtured at Okehampton Primary School! Anyone who takes the opportunity to look at the exhibition of work inspired by the poetry and painting about the first world war will be astounded at the range demonstrated by these ten and eleven year olds from our town.

The price has to be paid

THE controversy concerning Sheffield United and Welsh international Ched Evans, as to whether he continues as a professional footballer, goes on! This man was jailed in April 2012 for the rape of a 19-year-old girl and released last month after serving just half of a five year sentence.
