Devon County has passed the parking enforcement on to MDDC as from the 5th May. The Enforcement Officers have been very lenient in the first few weeks, just to let the new arrangements bed in, by now they will be keeping watch on how we all park. This will not be like the Traffic Warden approach, their brief is to be helpful, to give advice where to park etc. The whole object is to keep traffic flowing and relieve congestion. It is not revenue raising, it is funded by DCC and we have three Enforcement Officers for the whole of Mid Devon. You can be sure that some will park in parking restricted areas and they will have to pay the charge of £50 or £70, depending on the severity of the offence, reduced by 50% if paid within 14 days, they will have the right of appeal.

Over 100 people took the opportunity to enjoy a Music Soiree at the home of Jean and Philip Vowles of Hemyock when £400 was raised. The two charities to benefit equally are the Blackdown Support Group and the Devon Air Ambulance.

Many visitors took advantage of the beautiful grounds and views as the earlier section of the evening’s entertainment took place in front of the conservatory before moving indoors. Those taking part varied from primary age children to the more mature.

Hemyock was hit by a terrific storm at 7pm on Thursday 27th May.  The storm was centred on South Somerset with Crewkerne and Ilminster being badly hit; the edge was bad enough. Within minutes the Recreation Field, Bowling Green, the road and gardens of South View and surrounding areas were submerged as rain relentlessly beat down amidst thunder and lightning.

As I write this Easter Sunday is just a few days away when many will have enjoyed visits from family and friends. Others may be on holiday for a longer period and we welcome them and hope they will enjoy the delights of the area. Despite the turbulent weather we sometimes experience nature delights in reminding us that warmer weather will soon be here as colourful Spring flowers, blossoms and budding leaves brighten our days.
