Stoke Fleming Road Closure - Update

The A379 through Stoke Fleming is NOW OPEN for the summer
Stoke Fleming Parish Council are pleased to confirm that the remaining sections of the wall have been removed to allow the A379 to re-open and will remain open for the summer months. This section will close again in October for the wall to be re-built.
For the time being let's make the most of the Summer and face the next challenge here when it comes around in the Autumn.

Free Energy Efficiency Improvements

The scheme is being delivered by the Cosy Devon partnership who has secured nearly £10m of government funding to offer householders the chance to improve their homes by ensuring that they are warmer, less draughty, and less damp. Improvements will also reduce their energy bills and lower their home's carbon emissions. Many homes in Devon need substantial investment and the Cosy Devon partnership is committed to reducing Devon's domestic carbon footprint and lifting communities out of fuel poverty.
The scheme is available to Devon residents who have an annual combined household income of less than £30,000 and whose homes have an energy Performance Certificate rating of E, F or G. If you qualify, your home will have to be assessed to determine which energy efficiency measures could be installed. The initiative has a quality assurance plan in place to make sure that works are done correctly and deliver the benefits and savings expected.
Leader of Devon County Council John Hart said: "This scheme is an example of councils across Devon working in partnership to benefit the residents of Devon to help reduce the impact of the cost-of-living crises, lift low-income households out of fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions".
South Hams District Council's Cllr Tom Holway, Executive Member for Climate Change and Biodiversity, said: "Doing what you can to save money is essential in these tough economic times so this scheme is perfect for our residents.

Platinum Jubilee for the Queen as well as a Party

The very big royal Platinum Jubilee event has drawn a line, an ending of sorts - and with it a new beginning. It's part of the magic - or strangeness - of an institution that gets to regenerate. This was also, alongside the partying and pageantry, a fond farewell to the Queen who, after seven decades, is withdrawing from public life.
There's no real way of judging the success of last weekend. Over the weekend millions took the opportunity to have a good time after a couple of years of really bad times helped by that strange thing from a long time ago, monarchy.
And, ever-dutiful, our Queen performed another service to her people. It is good to know, at long last, what's in that handbag.
