  1. I feel compelled to write to you due to the frequency of bonfires people are choosing to have for whatever reason.

    It is impossible to enjoy ones own garden, surrounding environment and home when people dispose of their garden waste in this way.

    This practice adversely affects the air quality and minute smoke particles enter the home despite windows being closed.

    Just last weekend ‘neighbours’ burned virtually all day filling my garden and surrounding area with smoke! It has had an adverse effect on my health and I feel the time has come to kindly request help with what is an unpleasant ongoing situation .

    We are in a ‘lockdown ‘ due to Covid 19 which literally means that this is no escape from the smoke!

    There is a bonfire being burnt as I am writing this.


  2. Hello, I have lived between Lustleigh and Moretonhampstead for nearly 20 years and watched my three children grow up playing in the Orchard in Lustleigh. It truly is one of my favourite places on Earth. I’d love to donate a honeybee loghive on legs to the orchard. It could have a small fence around it to deter close range interest. The benefits to the land, trees and bees are enormous. This is their most natural state. The cost of loghive, legs and installation is £500. As it is still swarm season I’m hoping to receive an answer from you as soon as possible. Kindest regards and many thanks, Jodi Feist King 07792575184 Wray Barton Manor TQ13 8SE


      • Hi Jodi

        Many thanks for your kind and generous offer, which has been discussed by the councillors. There is concern about placing a hive in what is a public recreational area and so, with regret, I’m afraid the the decision has been made to decline your offer.

        I’m sorry to disappoint you.


        Lis Wallace
