Happy New Year from your Parish Council.
Most of us are fit and healthy and are enjoying the snow. Some of our neighbours, especially the elderly, may view this weather with trepidation – not being able to get out to the shops, not having their friends or family come by to see them, etc. Do you have a neighbour who might value a visit today?

Devon County Councillor Ray Radford judged this years Christmas Decoration competition in Hemyock and found it a difficult decision to come to  a final winner as there were some outstanding displays which really enhanced the whole village.
 
“Overall it was a good effort by all who had taken part, from decorating a tree, a couple of lights in a window, a lit reindeer, etc, no matter how small, it all went towards giving the village a Christmas feel.  Hemyock is a good Community to be part of, well done everybody.”

Hemyock Parish Council have approved a modest increase in the Parish Precept for the year 2010/11 which equates to a rise typically of less than 3p per household per week. 
 
The Council heard that the increase was needed to fund a range of useful initiatives which would be of real benefit to the community.  This included a pedestrian raised footway over the flood plain to the northern end of the village which would cost in the region of £40,000.  In a recent questionnaire, 92% of those responding felt that the footway was necessary especially to those who lived on the northern side of the Culm River.

Hemyock is a thriving community with a large number of events, all of which need to be promoted.  This web site and the village noticeboard are two of the means of advertising.  However the single noticboard is proving too small and it is thought that a further one or two noticeboards in the village would be helpful.  The Parish Council together with the Parish Hall Committee and Longmead Sports Committee are considering the siting of public noticboards at the entrance to Longmead and in the Millhayes Hall area and the enlargement the exiting board at the Parish Hall.  The increase in capacity will reduce the unsightly posting of notices on telgraph poles it is hoped.
