Dear Residents and Visitors
After continued reports and concerns of Dog Waste being left on the Public Highway, Community Field and other green areas it has become necessary to ask the Dog Warden Service from the Local Council to help.
The Dog Warden will visit the Village on a regular basis to check areas of concern.
Your assistance in keeping the Village clean is appreciated.

Due to the Coronavirus, the West Down Parish Council will not be meeting in the usual way.
We are awaiting legal information on alternative ways of carrying out our duties. In the meantime, we are forwarding information on the current situation to those who are updating the various community websites and social media outlets. Our contact details are on the village website, please let us know if you have any concerns and we will deal with them to the best of our ability.
We are liaising with Deb Hayes who is co-ordinating the West Down Volunteer Group, and as a community, we are all very grateful to her and her team. There is some finance support available from the Devon County Council and the Fullabrook CIC to support this initiative.
Our Community Shop has been working really hard to keep us all supplied and are to be congratulated. Sue Bond and her team have put in long hours and still remain cheerful and helpful. It is great that so many new volunteers have stepped up to take over from those regulars who are over 70. There are a number of NHS workers in our community and we are sure that everyone applauds them and wishes them well.
We are a strong, vibrant community and we will come through this. We will have found new strengths and made new friends. The West Down After the Virus Party will be quite something! Stay safe!
Ash die-back is becoming increasingly prevalent and landowners are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure public safety. Dead or diseased trees need to be removed or made safe where they could fall across roads or pathways. Advice and information can be found on
