Parish Council Controversy continues to surround planning application for a development in Hemyock which villagers believe will cause further sewage leaks and potential health issues. Frustrated residents of the Longmead estate, where sewage leaks have become a very real issue, attended the Parish Council Meeting and voiced their concerns that they are not being heard by the planning department or South West Water regarding the Churchills Farm plans. “The new development will significantly add to an existing problem which has yet to be addressed by the authorities” said resident Alec Smith.

General News The last Around Hemyock article began with congratulating the Culm Valley Young Farmers' Club on some recent successes and it is good to do that again as they have recently celebrated their 60th anniversary sale and show held at Exeter Market which I believe was featured on a local television news programme. We also send them condolences on the death of past member Eleanor Dlugosz who was killed so tragically in Iraq.
