Dear Parish,

The East Devon Tractor & Vintage Machinery club are coordinating the Devon National Vintage tractor road run 2016, with all proceeds going to Devon Air ambulance; St Luke’s hospice & Devon Freewheelers in Honiton.

The one of a life time’s event, is to be held on Easter Sunday 27th March 2016, will be passing through your Parish.

Entries are £18 per tractor & the downloadable PDF can be found on the clubs web site at: click here 

The route is starting from Smeatharpe Stadium at 9.30am; will travel west, to the Honiton Show Ground, stopping for a lunch and then returning back to the stadium via an easterly path.

We are looking to attract upto 500 tractors for the run, to travel the 28 miles round route during the day. All number of makes of tractors will be present, from Allis Charmers to Zetor.

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,

 

Richard   Galling – Vice Chairman EDTMC

Unfortunately the last page of the Around Hemyock item is missing from the Aug/Sept.issue of the Parish Pump so for your delight here it is!

 

We remember all those known to us who are unwell think very especially of Dr Mark Couldrick

By the time this issue has been distribte, David and I, like many, will have enjoyed a holiday. Cheyenne and Erika meanwhile will have been amongst a party of 10 Uffculme Academy students (including Johnny Atkinson from Culmstock) who have joined other students from around the country visiting China for 2 weeks. The Uffculme party will be in Beijing before moving to Qingdao. The itinerary includes visiting Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace and walking the Great Wall as well as having Mandarin lessons (with exam!), visiting homes and taking part in sports activities.

Whether you are holidaying at home or away, or are visiting this area, we hope the time will bring you rest and enjoyment.

As has become the custom a cream tea afternoon brought many visitors to Prings Farm and a huge amount of money was raised for cancer charities. A warm thanks to the organisers and to all who supported the event.

Cream teas leads me back to Wimbledon (sorry non tennis fans) where Federer has just beaten Murray in the semi final and our house (well me really!) breathes a sigh of relief. Time to pack for holiday methinks!

The mellowness which we usually experience during September brings us Harvest Festival which is celebrated in our churches and school. A wonderful time for us all to get together and give thanks for "All good gifts around us" So to all those who work on the land or in any capacity to bring us food and goods a heartfelt thank you

Any news you would like to share would be welcome.

Came across the following today in a Parish Pump dated June 2005 -

Hemyock festivities for the 60th anniversary of VE Day - blustery weather - open air service for about 100 - bunting, balloons and Union Flag decorated the Parish Hall where service was held - wreath laid at the War Memoriall - bring and share tea - well loved music  with singing from the 1940's - dancing to the music of Glenn Miller - £150 raised for the RBL  WW2 Anniversary Appeal - medals glistened - eyes misted - but my goodness how those veterans stood straight and proud as the National Anthem was sung
