Beaford Arts - A Reminder

Just a gentle reminder that the deadline is fast approaching (5th September) for the photo competition to 're-photograph' and re-interpret the selected James Ravilious photos of Exbourne and Hatherleigh (and any of the others if you feel like it!). Have a look at the web site, find the image you want to 're-photograph' and click 'more' for details of where the image is, and to upload your entry. Get out there and get snapping soon!! The digital image needs to be uploaded via the web site BEFORE 5th September! See here for details: http://photos.beaford-arts.org.uk/

Beaford Arts photo competition

Recognise this? Or the faces? This is one of James Revilious' images from the Beaford archives, sent to us to promote their photo 'New Perspectives:  Celebrating Beaford Arts at 50' competition celebrating their 50th Anniversary. You are invited to take a new photograph in response to those taken by James Ravilious along the lines of 25 samples now being shown on their web site HERE. Selected photos will be exhibited at The Goodwin Gallery, Petroc. There are more details on how to enter on the hatherleigh.net front page, along with another old image, this time of the market. Or, enter via the Beaford Arts photo comp page HERE.

Village Fete

The Community Fete will be held in and around the Village Hall on Saturday 25th June 2.15 pm, to celebrate life in the village and our Queens 90th birthday.

A Big Thank You

Last year hatherleigh.net helped promote the National Plant Monitoring Scheme, in which volunteers up and down the country went out to survey 1km 'squares' of land. We've just heard that this resulted in the recruitment of over 1100 volunteers. A message from the organisers has been received. It reads: "We thought you might be interested to see what your hard work has helped us achieve. Follow this link to see the results from 2015 and the projects plans for the year ahead. There are still lots of squares available for surveying so we would be hugely grateful if you can use your communication channels to promote the scheme again using either the newsletter (above) or the NPMS flyer. The live map on the NPMS website shows the squares that are available. We particularly need to promote the scheme in remote areas as well as areas containing coastal and upland habitats." The scheme is a partnership between Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI); JNCC; Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) and Plantlife and is backed by the government. Volunteers survey 5 plots in a kilometre square close to where they live.

The Annual Parish Council meeting Agenda is HERE.

The Agenda for the next Parish Council Meeting is HERE.

If you're confused by all these meetings and agenda (we are) we think this is the way things will work:

If that's not right, could someone let us know please. ;-)
