Thank you to all our friends and members who generously donated towards the purchase of Court Woodland. We are nearly there, and are waiting for the remaining funds to come in. We thought we would show you what we are intending to purchase on behalf of the village.
The purchase of the Wood would protect an important part of Court Woodland from any development at some point in the future or from a private owner deciding to fence it off for his own enjoyment.
Further additions to the “Spirit of the Yealm” book have been added to the web site.
It covers a contribution from Tony Baker and his daughter Kathy, covering life in the villages in the 1930s and during the second world war and the 1950s.
We also have an item about Robert Hodge, a remarkable man, like so many men of his time he was an experienced fisherman and together with his friend Stan Abbott was responsible for a highly dangerous rescue at sea. This was sent in by Chris and Ann Mason
