John and Nicola in the pink
Nicola and John Bendle of Gladhayes first saw pink wrap when they were on holiday in New Zealand in February, and found out it was for Breast Cancer awareness and fundraising.
So they asked for it when they got home and managed to get some from Martin Waterman of Tiverton.
Agricultural contractor Jamie Thomson, who did their baling, was so tickled pink he put it on Facebook straightaway.
Supplies are limited apparently!
New faces join Parish Council
There were some new faces at Clayhidon Parish Council 18 May meeting, the first following the election. Alison Weekes and Graham Langford were elected in place of two veteran councillors. Robert Pike and Alan Redwood, who stood down, had both served 24 years. And it was the last meeting for Michael Osmund after 42 years as clerk. Richard Kallaway, who was re-elected as chairman, paid tribute to all three and thanked them for their loyal service to the parish. Also attending was Donna Evans, clerk to Hemyock Parish Council, who is standing in for Michael Osmond while a permanent replacement is found.

Extension idea for the parish hall
Major improvements are being mooted for Clayhidon Parish Hall. The committee wants to build an extension to provide a store room for tables and chairs and a ‘green room’ where visiting performers can rest and prepare. It is also hoping to conquer the old problem of mouldy walls in the toilets, by adding a lining to stop condensation. >Read more.
