Fuel poverty in Devon is above the national average, with 1 in 5 rural households classed as fuel poor in the county. In recent years there has been a focus from central government to reduce fuel poverty by making grants available, however increasing fuel prices have meant that numbers in fuel poverty continue to rise.  Fuel poverty disproportionately affects older households, and rural districts of Devon where the housing stock is older and incomes are generally lower. In Devon 5,934 households (19%) spent more than 10% of their income on heating their homes – the benchmark of fuel poverty.  Source: Devon County Council Healthy Housing Needs Survey 2012

We are doing a survey to see who uses hemyock.org and what you use it for.  If you are interested in the facilities in Hemyock at all, please send me an email at 'steedpaul' ampersand 'rocketmail.com'.  

It can be blank, as part of my survey is just counting numbers of emails, but if you want to comment on how often you use it; what you are using it for; and whether you found it or not, that would be even more help. I promise no spam in return!

Many thanks in advance,

Paul

In celebration of the Road Run, a Grand Draw is being held to raise funds: the first prize being a 1958, vintage Massey Ferguson 35 petrol/TVO tractor; second is £100; third is £50; as well as many other donated prizes.

We hope to raise in excess of £10,000 from this non-profit making event, with all proceeds going directly to the charities above. All efforts to date have been volunteered, resources donated, any costs incurred have been non-profit bearing.

The route will be leafleted prior to the big day, informing all immediate households of the passing vintage traffic.

I would ask for all your support in this charitable event, I also hope every spectator will wave & enjoy the tractors safely passing by. It will be a day to remember in years to come.

Many thanks,
