Hatherleigh is Changing
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

April 16, 2012: The plans for the Market have been submitted to West Devon Borough Council for an environmental assessment details here
Hatherleigh is changing all night parties involving excessive amounts of alcohol and probably drugs. Over the Easter period at least two separate night-time parties took place on the Lower Moor. Each party had lit a large bonfire near the pond. Damage was done by ripping branches from trees and bushes to fuel the fires, both of which had become so hot they had melted cans and bottles. Strewn around the moor, and in the pond itself, were dozens of empty bottles and tins, plastic wrapping, toilet paper etc. There was also a huge quantity of broken glass.
There is also reports of needles being found in the children's play area in Moorview. With the continuing expansion of Hatherleigh we can expect more of this type of behaviour.
