There were two members of the public present. The Council was thanked for the considerable improvement that had been noticed concerning the state of the buddle holes within the parish. The Council was asked to pass on thanks to those responsible for the work involved. Mention was made of the agreed increase in the Council’s precept which would be used to continue the good work on the buddle holes. It was generally felt that this was a good use of parishioners’ money as the work is no longer being carried out by Devon Highways.
