The change is amazing!

ON Friday, August 22, the Sticklepath and Okehampton Conservation Group spent the day helping to clear around Gidleigh Tor.


Without a doubt, the best little festival in the country . . .

HOW pleasing to see a couple of pages devoted to the Dartmoor Folk Festival in last week’s paper.


Thanks to one and all for yet another wonderful show

IT is with pleasure that I write following what has been a successful and fun Okehampton Show which was held on August 14.


Council has ponies’ best interests at heart

THE Dartmoor Commoners’ Council has a very active pony working party with its members keeping various types of ponies ie Dartmoor Hill, Heritage, pedigree Dartmoor and Shetland ponies.


Everything must be done to protect Dartmoor from these machines

I HAVE recently returned from a pleasant trip to Italy and enjoyed its unspoilt countryside where I did not see a single wind turbine.

Faulty decision to make CAB supervisors redundant

I AM appalled at the action taken in making redundant all of the advice session supervisors in the Okehampton and Tavistock CABs (the only paid posts).

These are wild animals, not fluffy pets

AS a local resident I am constantly seeing people bringing their children on to Dartmoor to see the ponies.


Cycling could bring much more trade to the town

I READ with interest the report from Mr Pinch, the volunteer Sustrans ranger regarding a possible cycle route along the Tavistock Canal in the August 7 edition of the Times.

Let the memories be shared to help others

CONGRATULATIONS are certainly due to those responsible for the ‘On the Hour’ World War One ‘Lest We Forget’ commemoration presentation in St Stephen’s Church, Okehampton, on August 4.


Poignant day

IT proved a poignant day on Monday, August 4, the centenary of the start of the First World War.


They are beautiful and made me smile

I WOULD like to say thank you to whoever was responsible for the planting of the wild flowers on the verge as you enter Okehampton from the west side.


Bring back repair shops

ONCE upon a time, when my radio, or fountain pen stopped working, I took it to its local dealer/shopkeeper and it was repaired at a cost.


Lessons to be learned from history?

I READ Paul Mercer’s letter in last week’s Times with interest.
