Public Meeting update.
A huge thank you to the community for your overwhelming support and powerful consensus at the Allardice Hall in July this year. A Community group naturally evolved as a result and it has been full on; looking into the scale of current and potential expansion and the plight on our village. Please see the Parkham development link for further information which has led to a presentation with our Member of Parliament and Devon County Councillor in return, providing us with their full and unreserved support.
