Many thanks John!
In order to obtain Bigbury’s quota of free salt & grit from Devon County Council, I have agreed to serve as Snow Warden, at least for the time being, there having been no volunteers in response to the Parish Council’s earlier call.
I still hope to arrange a network of volunteers from around the parish who will spring into action at the first sign of cold weather to spread salt/grit from DCC bags which I shall distribute and leave at strategic points by the roadside. Please note: this salt is not intended for private use!
If you are willing to help by looking after the road in your part of Bigbury, please let me know.
If you live in a part of the parish where the road has been susceptible to freezing over in previous winters, please let me know so that salt & grit can be provided where needed.
Let’s keep Bigbury moving!
Contact: tel 01548 810373 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Duties would include forming, training and co-ordinating a team of volunteers throughout the parish to determine local priorities in severe weather and take appropriate action. The Snow Warden will be the key point of contact between Bigbury and Devon County Council for dealing with snow and ice on the roads. The post is voluntary but will be covered by Public Liability Insurance. Anybody interested should contact the Parish Clerk, Pam Trundle on 01548 810719 or e-mail: email@example.com.

Huge congratulations are due to the team of people – led by Alan Kildjian and David Gay – involved in organising the fund-raising, purchase and installation of not one but THREE cardiac defibrillators for the parish of Bigbury with such efficiency!
These 3 instruments have been set up in the main population centres of the parish at St Ann’s Chapel, Bigbury Village and Bigbury on Sea for use in the event of anybody suffering heart failure.
The South West Ambulance Service will maintain the defibrillators, replacing pads and batteries as necessary, and will train First Responders and other interested people in their use.
There will be an evening of instruction for all interested parishioners on September 7th 2011 at 7 pm in the Memorial Hall.
Many parishioners will be very pleased to learn that, according to a letter to Parish Council Chairman Terry Edgcombe, dated 3rd August 2011, and pasted on the counter in Holywell Stores, Mr John Stevens has recently completed his purchase of the Pickwick Inn and wishes to proceed with its development to form a ‘gastro’ pub with an accompanying name change back to the Old Chapel Inn, in accord with SHDC’s planning approval.
I’m sure we all look forward to a speedy improvement in the appearance of the derelict building that currently greets visitors and residents as they enter the parish via this important route alongside the pub.
A secondary benefit will be the release of monies to support affordable housing within the South Hams under a Planning Obligation controlled by a so-called Section 106 agreement.
