What a busy couple of months it has been for Culm Valley YFC! The new year began with the East Devon Pantomime competition held at Exmouth where we came 3rd place! A massive thank you goes to Mark Davis and Judith Trevelyan for their work directing it and to Alan Quick and Hazel Davis for their help with the scenery. Well done to Emily Vallis and Jess Maynard who jointly won the best actress award as well as Katie Trevelyan who was nominated and to James Westcott, Olly Reed and Courtney Goodare who were nominated for the best actor award.

We had six members attend the Devon YFC Ski Trip – they all had a good week and luckily everyone returned in one piece! Next up we had the Member of the Year competition with Mark Snell and Maggie Palmer taking part for the Seniors and Emily Emmett and Emily Davis taking part for the Juniors. Well done to Emily Emmett who was placed 2nd!

Devon County - Tough Choices

Parish Council

Below is a note from Devon County Council

Public transport review

To help meet the £50 million budget reduction required by Government spending cuts next year, we now face making savings of £1.7m from our annual public transport budget. It will be the first time that we have proposed making service reductions for four years.

Most bus services in Devon are run commercially by bus companies at no cost to the Council. However, we spend £5.376m a year to support nearly 200 public bus services, carrying around 4.5m passengers every year. These services would not run without this support.

We also manage the National Bus Pass Scheme for 175,000 pass holders in Devon. This costs us more than £9m every year. Efficiencies have already been achieved across the wider Transport Coordination Service to meet previous savings.

We need your help
