Results of the questionnaire on parish projects

Back in February we included a questionnaire in the centre pages of the winter newsletter in which we gave details of eight possible future projects for the Parish Council to undertake and we asked residents to provide us with feedback to let us know which projects they wanted us to follow up. We had 52 replies which meant that over 2000 people chose not to reply and therefore forfeited the right to complain if their project wasn’t chosen.
The top four projects were:
1st St Day Old Church
2nd Vehicle activated road signs
3rd Town Clock & War Memorial lighting
4th External defibrillator
and we hope to have sufficient funds from the donations we were given to fund all of these projects over the coming year.
So, many thanks to the 52 who replied and gave their questionnaires in, and to everyone else …..

Devon and Cornwall Alert

Devon and Cornwall Alert is a free messaging system to inform members of the public about crimes and incidents affecting their local area. It works by sending recorded messages by telephone, email or text messages to individuals or groups and businesses.

Basically it is a two-way messaging system which helps the police to connect with local communities; it tells people what is happening in their area and allows them to respond directly with any information and the system is designed to allow people to choose the type of information they would like to receive concerning crime and anti-social behaviour, witness appeals, crime prevention, community events and even local good news. This means that subscribers will not be notified about every crime or incident that happens in their community as the aim is to send relevant information where the police believe to do so will reduce the opportunity for crime and anti-social behaviour or help them to solve a crime.

Anyone interested in signing up for Devon and Cornwall Alert should go to alerts.dc.police.uk or you can fill in a form on the Devon and Cornwall police website under the services section.
