Hemyock Parish Council was represented by its Chairman Heather Stallard who was there to put forward the views of local people who had deep concerns about the lack of sufficient infrastructure.  In particular, recently reported sewage leaks on Longmead because of inadequate pipe-work, a lack of teaching accommodation at the local school, the need for affordable housing specifically for local people and ongoing traffic problems.

General News Oh dear, what a dismal summer we are having but whilst some events have been badly affected by rain we have been quite fortunate here. One lucky couple who really had a gloriously sunny day for their wedding were Sarah Bourne and Trevor Jackson. Their Ugandan theme day was a delight and we wish them and their family all happiness as they move to Dorset where Trevor will begin training for church ministry. We also say a fond farewell to the Morgan family returning to Australia where Dan will be taking up a teaching position at the NSW State Conservatorium of Music in Sydney and to Gill and Ian Richardson who with their 3 children have bought a shop near Lot, France.

St Mary's Church Just as this edition of The Pump comes out we will be taking delivery of new Bibles for St Mary's. Many of these have been donated by people in the parish and we would like to say thank you to them for their generosity. The Bibles are in the New Revised Standard Version, and are an edition published in conjunction with Christian Aid. So a good cause has been helped, as well as helping the congregation follow the readings and talks in our services. Why not come and try one!

St Mary's Church The DHCT are having their annual "Ride, Stride or Bike Day" on Saturday September 8th. On this day many of the churches in the county will be open and people are encouraged to visit as many as possible, and get some sponsorship for doing it. 50% of any money raised goes to DHCT, the other does to which ever church you decide to nominate. So you could cycle round all the Dartmoor churches and raise money for Culm Davy!
