Due to popular demand this year from the students of Wageningen University, Holland, we are looking to host 42 students in June 2019. Students are aged between 18-20 and already speak excellent English. We match up students to placements across Devon so that they can then undertake social research, conducted on issues facing people in your community. What they discover and find out can be insightful to you as well as to them.
Devon is the most popular of the venues offered to students; it is the welcome and care given by our hosts that has earnt us a reputation as the place to study. What they mainly require from you is bed and board and a little bit of local knowledge and assistance with travel. A modest payment of £350 per student accommodated will be paid to you. Over the years we have built up a pool of regular hosts, but we need to expand this due to the increasing number of students and need for additional locations.
If you or someone you know might be interested in hosting a student from Thursday 13th – Wednesday 26th June this year and wish to find out a little more about this opportunity, then we have attached an information leaflet as well as an expression of interest form. Please read and share the attached information letter and for those who wish to host, just complete the expression of interest form and return to email@example.com .If you would like to have an informal chat with us before returning the form, please call 01392 248919 and speak to Lisa or me.

Devon County Council is urging people to be prepared for the possibility of snow this week.
The Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning of snow and ice conditions from midday tomorrow (Tuesday 29 January) which could have the potential to cause travel disruption.
Although any snow is not expected to be widespread, the current forecast is that higher ground, such as Dartmoor and Exmoor, could face up to 5cm of snow. Haldon and Telegraph Hills may see a small amount of snow, some of which could affect tomorrow evening’s rush hour.
Road surface temperatures will be close to zero in most of the county overnight tonight, but it will fall below freezing in East Devon, Mid Devon and Dartmoor.
The County Council’s gritters will be treating many of the main routes across the county overnight, with a widespread heavy frost and icy conditions expected tomorrow morning. Untreated surfaces could be hazardous.
Devon County Council, Highways England and Devon and Cornwall Police have been liaising closely and multi-agency conferences have been held to ensure that the Haldon/Telegraph Hill Plan is ready to be activated if needed.
Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Highway Management, said: “There is a risk of snow this week, with the first spell of wintry showers expected from tomorrow afternoon, so we would urge everyone to be prepared. Our advice is to plan your journey, keep an eye on the weather forecast and please take extra care when travelling.”
The County Council is reminding people of the following advice:
• Avoid overnight travel unless absolutely essential as roads will always be more hazardous at night with less traffic and colder temperatures;
• Never assume a road has been salted. Remember that showers or rain will wash salt off roads leaving them prone to ice, and in extreme cold even salting will not stop ice from forming;
• Allow additional time for your journey and reduce your speed;
• Drive with care and according to the conditions;
• If you have vulnerable or elderly neighbours, think about how they could be helped through the cold spell;
• Try to maintain indoor temperatures to at least 18C, particularly if you are not mobile, have long term illness or are 65 or over;
• Listen to local radio for updates on current weather conditions and ensure you are stocked with food and medications.

CONNECTING DEVON & SOMERSET
Dear Parish Clerk,
Just a reminder that our Broadband User Survey closes on Sunday 9 December.
The survey aims to capture people’s broadband needs and compare whether these needs are being met by the service they receive. The survey is open to all residents and businesses within Devon and Somerset and in addition to capturing the impact from the new infrastructure, it will help us identify the broadband needs across our counties and the data will influence our future Digital Strategy.
Our Broadband User Survey asks questions about current available speeds, what homes or businesses can and cannot do with their existing broadband and the levels of satisfaction with their provider. The survey typically takes about five minutes to complete online and can be found at www.connectingdevonandsomerset.co.uk/broadband-user-survey.
We are keen for the survey to be completed by as many local residents and businesses as possible so please feel free to share the survey link to help promote it and bring it to the awareness of their local communities.

Salcombe Harbour Authority is advising those taking to the water this summer on how to stay safe on boats.
Following a serious, but rare, incident at the weekend involving youngsters on the water, and in a bid to encourage locals and visitors to keep safe while having fun in the harbour, the Harbour Master is sharing key boat safety information.
The campaign aims to remind boat users to wear a ‘kill cord’. This red cord has a quick-release fastening at one end and a clip at the other. The quick-release fastening is attached to the boat’s instrument panel and the other end is attached securely to the driver; making sure that the outboard engine cuts out if the driver falls overboard.
This is especially important to avoid another ‘Padstow’ type incident where a family suffered fatalities and life changing injuries when they were thrown from their boat and collided with it, while it was out of control in a high speed turn.
Salcombe Harbour Master, Cameron Sims-Stirling, said: “We want everyone to enjoy everything the harbour has to offer and to do that, we call on boat owners to take sensible precautions before taking to the water.”
If you are planning on driving small pleasure boats this summer, there are no set requirements for safety equipment, however, it is important that you are properly equipped before going on the water.
Have a safe day out by remembering to use:
life jackets which fit
stay within the speed limit – 6 knots (kts) in the estuary
don’t mix alcohol and boating
All equipment should be checked regularly for damage to make sure it is fit for purpose. It is also important that lifejackets come in different sizes, so make sure you have one which fits you properly.
South Hams District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Commercial Services, Cllr Rufus Gilbert, said: “It is important that this safety message is heard far and wide by both our residents and our visitors. We hope that accidents can easily be avoided if these simple measures are followed.”
Come to the Extraordinary Parish Council meeting at 7.00pm on 25th July in the Memorial Hall to find out more (the full Agenda is listed separately)
