Coffinswell Parish Council Chair


June 2022

Cllr Alex Parkes, Chair of Coffinswell Parish Council, has regrettably decided to step down from the Parish Council due to ill health. He will be isolating at home while receiving treatment and has decided that he will not be able to carry out the duties of Chair as well as he does when fit. He will focus on getting back to full health and fitness and we all wish him well with his recovery.

In accordance with the due processes, the Vice Chair Cllr Nick Orchard will take on the role of acting Chair until a new Chair is elected at the next meeting of the Parish Council on 21st June 2022.

Teignbridge District Council have been informed and they will start the process of advertising for a new councillor to fill the vacancy left by Alex. Anyone interested in joining the Parish Council should keep an eye out for the notices in due course.

I’m sure that everyone in Coffinswell and Daccombe will join me and my council colleagues in thanking Alex for the tremendous work that he’s done for the parish, and we send him our sincerest best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

Cllr Nick Orchard

Welcome to all the new villagers who have come to live in Coffinswell and Daccombe over the last year – hopefully they appreciate that a ‘physical’ welcome has been difficult over the ‘Covid time’ and indeed it has sometimes been difficult to know who has moved in and out of the village over the last year ! If there is anything about the villages that you wish to find out about do not hesitate to email me.

The Litter picking rotas continue and can be seen on the village notice board.

The website continues to develop and is well worth a visit if you have not yet already done so. Details of local walks are being developed and information and routes will continue to be added to the website for all to access.

There is nothing of note to report from Neighbourhood Watch (which is good!!) and I will continue to forward emails that might be of interest particularly from the Police and Community Watch.

If anyone has something they wish to share or report do not hesitate to email me and I will forward to the group. canddneighbours

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy Christmas and 2022
